It is now clear that APC is full of dirty minds — Tinubu

Tinubu is currently not a happy man.

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has expressed disappointment in the use of executive powers by powerful individuals in the APC, against other members of the party.

Tinubu who made the statement in his lengthy statement on the current crisis in the APC, said conflict in the party was unnecessary, but is a reflection of the kind of people the party accommodates.


He said, "The National Working Committee, itself, became riven by unnecessary conflict. Those who disagreed with one another stopped trying to find common ground. Attempts were made to use the power of executive authority to bury each other. I must be blunt here. This is the behaviour of a fight club not the culture of a progressive political party.

"Some members went against their chairman in a bid to forcefully oust him. In hindsight, his fence-mending attempts were perhaps too little too late. I believed and continue to believe that Comrade Oshiomhole tried his best. Mistakes were made and he must own them. Yet, we must remember also that he was an able and enthusiastic campaigner during the 2019 election. He is a man of considerable ability as are the rest of you who constituted the NWC.



On his 2023 presidential ambition and those who claimed the current crisis in the APC, spells doom for him, he said, "To those who have been actively bleating how the President’s actions and the NEC meeting have ended my purported 2023 ambitions, I seek your pity. I am but a mere mortal who does not enjoy the length of foresight or political wisdom you profess to have. Already, you have assigned colourful epitaphs to the 2023 death of an alleged political ambition that is not yet even born.


"At this extenuating moment with COVID-19, I have made no decision regarding 2023 for the concerns of this hour are momentous enough.

"Those who seek to cast themselves as political Nostradamus’ are free to so engage their energies. I trust the discerning public will give the views of such eager seers the scant weight such divinations warrant.



"Personally, I find greater merit trying to help in the present by offering policy ideas, both privately and publicly, where I think they might help. I will continue in this same mode for the immediate future. 2023 will answer its own questions in due time."
