Crack in sacked APC NWC camp, as Onilu declares support for Buni-led Caretaker Committee
There may have been a crack within the camp of the sacked National Working Committee (NWC) of All Progressives Congress (APC) as Ex- National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, publicly declared support for the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Committee.
we could recalled that the sacked National Chairman of the party, Adam Oshiomole with like-minds people in the same camp, including Lanre Issa-Onilu had on Thursday rejected the dissolution of the Party National Executive Members and approached Court of law to seek for redress.
But, in a statement released on Friday, Onilu said having reflected on the events of the past few days and the outcome of Thursday’s NEC meeting, he has seen reason to allign with the actions taken by the President.
He added that like the President said, the APC was ominously hanging on a cliff and as expected, something had to give way as the party could not have continued along that obvious path of destruction.
The former spokesperson of the party who was until the last minute with the disgraced Hilliard Etta-led NWC, has called on other estranged members of the party to rally round the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee led by H.E. Mai Mala Buni, as they embark on the process of rebuilding the party.
“Ours must be a party that is strong and truly progressive; one that can provide our government the support it requires to deliver more dividends of democracy.
“We all have the obligation to subordinate our individual interests to the collective interests of our government and country,” Onilu stated.
