There have been calls on the party’s National Chairman Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, whose tenure expires in 2018, to resign for his purported inability to resolve the crisis rocking the party.
Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) and Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, who met with the Odigie-Oyegun-led APC National Working Committee (NWC) yesterday, said the party leadership needs to make some amendments to enable the party forge ahead.
Okorocha also met with the Senate President Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara where he said President Muhammadu Buhari would soon meet the APC leaders to address the problems in the party.
The APC has moved from one crisis to another since it took over as ruling party from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in May last year. The crisis started with the emergence of Saraki and Dogara against the wish of the party.
Some chieftains of the party have accused Oyegun of not exerting his influence on how the country is being run.
Recently, the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, asked Oyegun to resign, accusing him of working against democratic fair play in the handling of APC governorship primary in Ondo State, which produced Rotimi Akeredolu as the party’s candidate.
Besides, the APC is yet to have a Board of Trustees (BoT), which is seen as a serious setback for a ruling party. While fielding questions from journalists after a closed door meeting, Okorocha said the talks focused on the need to restructure the party and ensure unity among its members.
