Some aggrieved members of All Progressives Congress, APC, have decried the congress held in Katsina, threatening to dump the party.
The members, including Senator Mohammed .T. Liman, Dr. Usman Bugaje and Alhaji Saidu Ilu, described the congresses held in Katsina on Saturday, as “despicable and outrageous.”
This was after three party leaders issued the threat in a press statement they jointly signed and made available to reporters, in Abuja, on Sunday, noting that the APC congress was a national disgrace to the citizens of the country.
The group stated, “We must finally make the important point that as citizens, we have options and will not remain in a party which has chosen to ignore all appeals to ensure decorum and due processes.
“Many lives were lost and many more were maimed in an exercise that is supposed to elect leaders of a party that claimed, to not only bring change, but pledged that change begins with it.
“In Katsina State, which is the primary constituency of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, a President that has been sold to many as an embodiment of honesty and integrity, forms were not sold to many who wanted to contest.
“Actually, what happened in Katsina during this last congress is a confirmation of all our fears that democracy, when taken over by a group of people who have lost their conscience and sense of shame, can only be scandalised and the party dragged into disrepute making it look worse than the very party the APC loved to condemn.”
