Assistant Secretary of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Cross River State, Chief Godwin Takus has alleged that the crisis that engulfed APC nationwide was to orchestrate tenure elongation of the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun.
Speaking with DAILY POST on Tuesday on phone, Chief Takus said that since the efforts to elongate the tenure of the chairman and organizing secretary had failed, the duo had put machineries in place to frustrate the congresses nationwide.
“The truth of it is that the National Chairman of the party and the National Organizing Secretary planned to remain in power and did whatever they could to remain in power. As far as the congresses was disrupted, the duo will continue to remain in office.
“They know that they will not return as National Officers hence they planned the failed congresses nationwide with a view to achieving extension of tenure.
“They are aware that they will not return as National officers of the party hence they put the machinery of distrust to cause failed congresses, it was a deliberate act to organize a failed congress to enhance the elongation of their tenure in office.
“The crisis is not only in Cross River State; check out everywhere, we saw that some people were almost lynched. It was the plan by Oyegun and the national organizing secretary of the party to remain in office. People have lost confidence in them, it is a deliberate act to extend their tenure,” he stated.
