I See A Heavy Defeat Staring At The Cross River APC In The Next General Election Unless Something Drastic Is Done To Heal The Wounds Inflicted On Party Stakeholders – Obono Obla


By Okoi Obono-obla

The cross-river state leadership of the APC is in shambles.
The leadership is grossly biased and discriminatory against members of the legacy parties in the APC in the State (defunct CPC, ACN, and ANPP that amalgamated in 2013 to form APC).

The agenda of the leadership is to perpetuate the interest and hegemony of defectors from the PDP that joined the APC in 2021.

This trend manifested clearly in the manner the leadership manipulated primaries for the nomination of candidates to fly the party flag in the next general election.
During the compilation of the names of delegates, the leadership ensure that only those that joined the party in 2021 were selected.

The selection of delegates constitutes an abuse of the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022; which stipulates that delegates shall be democratically elected.
The leadership continued to tinker with the list of delegates to the extent that aspirants (other than the ones from the 2021 defectors) knew the electors even right to the day of the primaries.

The APC in Cross River is presently rudderless and purposeless.

How does the leadership except for the unity of purpose, direction, discipline, and cohesion that a political party going into an election is required to have even show manifest bias against a tendency within its rank and file?

I see a heavy defeat staring at the party in the next general election unless something drastic is done to heal the wounds inflicted on party stakeholders, leaders, and members alike.
