The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sani on Saturday alerted that the various crises rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may affect the fortune of the party in the 2019 general elections.
Senator Sani raised the alarm in Ibadan while speaking with newsmen at the Oyo state NUJ Press centre after delivering a paper themed “Nigeria’s Political Future – Bright or Bleak? at the 5th Development Summit of the Olalekan Olomide Platform for Development” .
The Chairman Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts and Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Senator Shehu Sani on Saturday pointed out that the multifaceted crises in the APC is presently threatening its chances in the coming 2019 general elections.
According to Senator Sani, should there be no resolution to the crises rocking the party across the country, there will be no way it will not “affect the fortune and success of the party in 2019″, saying, ” we can only win if we are united in peace”.
” If there is no resolution of the crises in Kaduna, Kogi, Rivers and other state chapters of the APC, it will certainly going to affect the fortunes of our party in 2019. We can only win when we are united in peace.”he said.
Senator Sani attributed the series of crisis rocking APC at all levels in the country to the failure of the party’s leadership to resolve the crises in many state chapters. adding that the political crises in Kaduna state and other state chapters of the patty were as a result of the failure of the national leadership of the party to address some complaints promptly.
Specifically, Senator Sani disclosed that the crisis in Kaduna APC would not have degenerated to the level of a party Secretariat being demolished if the national leadership of the party had acted on time.
Speaking further, he emphasized that it will be difficult for the APC to win the 2019 general elections without fulfilling the 2015 campaign promises, and properly addressing the security challenges in the country.
Senator Sani however advised loyalists of President Muhammodu Buhari not to allow their love for the President preventing them from always tell him the truth especially on the security situations in some parts of the country.
