Following The People’s Democratic Party’s allegation this morning, over the alleged plot by the Muhammadu Buhari’s led government and APC, the Federal Government in a statement, saying the All Progressives Congress (APC) reserves the right to challenge defectors in court says Lai Mohammed.
APC Reserves The Right To Challenge Defectors In Court Says Lai Mohammed:
Nigerian Minister for Information and an APC Chieftain Lai Mohammed, however, revealed this on Saturday 4th August 2018 during an interview with Channels Television.
Minister Lai Mohammed, who was however asked about what the APC intends to do on defected APC members, given series of defections trailing the APC.
Lai Mohammed had, however, responded confidently saying
“I still believe that the party (APC) reserves the legal right to challenge any of them and ask for their seats to be declared vacant.”
The minister believes that the defections were planned following the emergence of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC).
” All you have seen from the beginning– R-APC, Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) were laying the foundation for the defection,” Lai Mohammed added.
The minister further accused the leadership of the National Assembly (NASS) of frustrating efforts to ensure unity within the party. According to him, the emergence of principal officers of NASS was against the wishes of the party as the election in 2015 happened when most APC lawmakers were having a meeting with the President.
Lai Mohammed stated in his words, “The leadership of the National Assembly destroyed party cohesion the moment they chose to go against the wishes of the party in the election of NASS principal officers.
” It is no longer a secret that the manner at which the Senate President emerged was not to the liking of the part as a whole.
” I still remember clearly that the major leaders of the party were waiting to meet at the National Conference Center in Abuja for Mr President when we heard that the Senate President had emerged.”
Lai Mohammed, however, decried that the significant working relationship between the executive and legislative arms of government was getting affected by what he described as the “lack of discipline within the NASS leadership”
Billzboxmedia, however, thinks nobody should be crucified for joining any party of choice.
