Former Deputy National Chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress R-APC, Chief Sam Nkire says members of the All Progressives Congress APC who left the party either to form the R-APC or join other political parties have been vindicated by the seeming intractible crises still rocking the party till today.
Chief Nkire who is now a member of the PDP Board of Trustees told newsmen in Abuja that the reason why hundreds of thousands of the ruling party decamped to other parties, especially the People’s Democratic Party, had become incontrovertible to all and sundry.
The one-time National Chairman of Progressive People’s Alliance PPA, who was also a statutory member of the APC Board of Trustees, added that, “any political party with too many elephants in the room will always have itself to blame”.
On the comment recently credited to the Minister of Works Fashola that President Muhammadu Buhari would hand power over to the S-West again instead of the marginalized S-East zone, Chief Nkire said he never read about it but added that it must have a case of misquotation.
The PDP chieftain maintained that Hon Raji Fashola was such a decent and detribalized gentleman whom he said would not wish the Igbo nation to perpetually remain outside what he called “the ring of inclusiveness”.
Chief Nkire said although he had parted ways with the APC, he would be surprised to see a Nigerian President or a political party that would not factor the S-East zone into its winning equation or wish that it produced the President of Nigeria, come 2023.
