Trouble Awaits APC If Buhari Refuses To Run - Senator Osita Izunaso Fires Warning

The National Organising Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Osita Izunaso, has fired a warning of an impending trouble in the ruling party if the president refuses to re-contest in 2019.

Chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Osita Izunaso who was elected Senator for the Imo West constituency in 2007, has said that there would be turmoil in the party if President Muhammadu Buhari declines to seek a second term of office.

While speaking to ThisDay Newspaper, the National Organising Secretary of the party, Senator Izunaso, warned that the political intrigues that would follow the president’s refusal to contest the 2019 presidential election would not only divide the APC but would also smash and cause it to lose the general election.

He said: “It would not be in the interest of the party and Nigeria for President Buhari not to run. The consequence would be unimaginable as all the big wigs that have been hibernating would come out and fight to the finish.”

He said the president should therefore, waste no further time in declaring his intention to run. “President Buhari should come out and run. If he declares today that he would run, it would be a popular decision and it would unite the party and galvanise it into action.”

Although the president has not stated clearly his political future, his body language fuels speculations that he intends to make a second bid for the presidency next year.

The president’s silence on his 2019 move had been feared to cause disquiet in the APC as some ambitious power players in the party might, in their strong push for Buhari’s slot, pull down the house.

Izunaso agreed with this possibility, saying as the national organising secretary, he was in a position to know the undercurrent of the power struggle in the party.

“I think if the president declares today, it would rest the simmering power struggle, unite and refocus the party to retain power in 2019,” he said.

Izunaso disagreed with the views of Obasanjo and Babangida that Buhari had underperformed, saying the president had done creditably well.

He said, “The president has performed exceedingly well. When we came into office, we promised three things: improve security; revive the economy; and fight corruption.

“The president has taken these three head on. He has fought Boko Haram to a standstill; pulled the economy out of recession; and corruption is on its knees right now.”

Asked if he did not consider the rampaging herdsmen as a new form of security threat that has become a serious concern to Nigerians, he said: “That is not exactly a new development. It is an inheritance that President Buhari is tackling with vigour. You know the president prefers to do than to talk.”
