Against the All Progressive Congress (APC’s) perceived quietness over complaints about the leadership structures of the party in states, Alhaji Ibrahim Shekarau, former Kano state government and the party’s chieftain has said that they were waiting for a moment of decision when the party’s national leadership fails to address the issues.
The former governor spoke when he came to Sokoto to consult with his former colleague, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa in Sokoto on Friday.
He told Journalists that before the moment of decision arrives, they were consulting with their people on the way forward for the APC.
“We are in Sokoto to consult with our friends and bothers, especially His Excellency, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa. As you are aware, both of us in Kano, Sokoto, Adamawa, Kwara and Rivers have similar predicament as far as the operations of the APC is concerned,” Shekarau said.
He added that they have been working together because “we have the concern for the growth and development of the APC. And if there is anything that needs to be done, we need to put hands together to address such an issue.”
Shekarau disclosed that they jointly and severally written to the national leadership of the party to lodge their complaints “as to our opposition to some of the directives given by it and the management of the party, which we felt were unconstitutional. The leadership is yet to respond to our plight. In fact, they not even given any acknowledgment to our letters.”
On the speculations that they were planning to dump the APC for another party, Shekarau said that people were bound to make all sorts of speculations because they were agitated but that their concern was how to resolve the disagreement between them and the national leadership of the party.
