Politics Africa : R-APC says APC has neglected its manifesto under Buhari



R-APC says APC has neglected its manifesto under Buhari
The newly formed faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Reformed All Progressives Congress, (R-APC) has revealed that the ruling party (APC), under the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration has neglected its manifesto.

R-APC made this known in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kassim Afegbua.

He said, “As we speak, the APC has jettisoned its own manifesto. Where is the restructuring we promised Nigerians? They hurriedly came up with a committee headed by Governor (Nasir ) el-Rufai; where has that landed us?


“The Vice-President is a supporter of restructuring. The President of the country is not a supporter of restructuring in the same government. Politics News : A leader is like a blind man, people on ground see what he can’t – Sheikh Gumi tells Buhari

“There is no synergy. There is no coordination on any issue. You have about three or four opinions from the same government; that is not the way to lead.

“When the Fulani herdsmen issue came up in Benue State, the Inspector General of Police came up with a different position; the Minister of Defence gave a different position; and the Presidency is giving a different position.”

Recall that the National Chairman of the (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, had ealier stated in an interview that the R-APC members were mercenaries hired to destabilise the APC.


However, in his reaction, Afegbua said they were genuine members of the party interested in retrieving the party from usurpers. He said, “Adams Oshiomhole needs to take a look at our past. We do not possess the characteristics of hirelings or mercenaries.

“We are bona fide members of the APC . When it is convenient for people, they dress you in very elegant robes but when they are losing the battle, they call you names, but we will not call them names, we will continue to insist that we are going to rescue the APC and reposition it for optimum performance.
“We cannot be preaching to be progressives when we are law-breakers. We cannot be preaching that we are progressives when we are a party that has performed abysmally low in all sectors of the economy.”
