Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has reacted to the crisis that has hit the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the recent times, including the issue of tenure elongation for the party executives at all levels.
Speaking on Monday during an interview on Channels Television’s programme, Roadmap 2019, Ganduje commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his intervention in the issue of tenure extension for the Party’s National Working Committee. (NWC)
He said: “there was nothing wrong for the APC to organise congresses and convention to avoid litigations that could affect the fortunes of the party.
“Even the APC Constitution does not allow for elongation and far from that, there was no provision for the extension of tenure for the leadership of a political party in the Nigerian Constitution.”
The governor noted that having misunderstanding was a norm in politics, although the challenged was to have the capacity to contain all such problems.
On the purported discord among APC governors, Ganduje said, “I think there’s an agreement and even the problem that started was not because of the 2019 (elections) as such.
“But some people think that if we go for congresses now, especially now that there are many problems here and there, then the party may end up being divided. That is hypothetical, it could be real and it could not be real.”
