Imposition of Bulama as Nat’l Secretary Tearing APC Apart -Ahmed Lawan
By Tom Garba,Yola
Alhaji Ahmad Lawan,an aspirant vying for the Secretary National seat of the All Progressives Congress,APC,party lamented how the imposition of Arch. Waziri Bulama by the National Chairman,Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is tearing the party away.
Lawan who made the move to fill the vacant office of the National Secretary of the party said APC national working committee (NWC) took a lopsided decision that’s causing disharmony among party faithfuls.
He called the attention of the NWC of the party to be wary of taken decisions that is capable of disuniting the party and was the same lack of internal democracy that led to the present comatose state of PDP struggling to survive the consequence because it played out bad against them.
The Adamawa APC bigwig,Lawal holds a divergence opinion that a well structure process of elections should be held to fill the vacant office,or widely consultation should be done to bring out a consensus party national Secretary not through anti Democratic means.
Lawal Faulted the NWC for given the office on acting capacity to somebody outside the them,according to him, if it were to be given at that level the assistant secretary should occupy the office since he is a member of NWC,but given it to someone who is not a member of NWC is resulting to party criminality.
“I’m a candidate vying for this post that I need to be consulted before decision of this magnitude should be taken,all of us in the entire North East whose slot of the office is shared to us are to decide with the NWC of who becomes the next party national Secretary.
”More over I don’t think Bulama is capable of holding that office hence his imposition is dividing us more in the party than uniting us,his coming is bringing in serious crisis than ever.” Lawal said
He enjoined party stakeholders to mediate on the issue otherwise it will plunder the party into a more disastrous 2023 when it will finally ship wrecked.
Recall the North East vice Chairman Comrade Salihu Mustapha yesterday over the media equally accused Adams of endangering the party with uninformed decision on the announcement of Arch Waziri Bulama as the acting Secretary.
He said some of the actions taken by the national Chairman are oblivious and unmindful of party internal democracy where consultation and consensus are at the central stage of APC manifestoes.
