APC meeting on Ondo guber primary report deadlocked




NCP picks candidate, alleges money-bag politics

Members of the National Working Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have failed to reach a consensus on the outcome of the recently-conducted Ondo State governorship primary election.

For more than three hours, members of the NWC, led by the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, deliberated on the committee report, which was said to have been submitted last week.

Although none of the NWC members spoke on the outcome of the parley, Odigie-Oyegun disclosed that deliberation on the issue would continue at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja today.

In the meantime, the National Conscience Party (NCP) in Ondo State yesterday held its primary election.

The primary, which was monitored by representatives of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), produced Mr. David Oluwasuyi as the party’s standard-bearer for the November 26 governorship election.

Also, the South-West Chairman and Deputy National Vice Chairman of the NCP, Mr. Abdulwaheed Lawal, has accused some political parties of practising money-bag politics.

Lawal, who spoke at the primary election in Akure yesterday, said: “We don’t have money to share, because the bigger parties have monitised everything.

They thought they can use money to buy the people’s conscience but this time around, it cannot be possible for them.

“We want our people to reject them with their money and vote a right candidate presented by the NCP.”

However, the Publicity Secretary of the APC in the state, Mr. Abayomi Adesanya, has refuted the claim, saying the ruling national government has turned the fortunes of the country around.

He added: “The NCP leaders were talking just to be heard. They are ignorant of the condition of the country when the APC came to power last year. So, we thank God that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is putting the country back to the right track.”

    We are not worried about it all and if we are worry at all , it is because we are indeed sad ,but not for ourselves , nor for the Party but the SELF-MOCKING of a certain National Leader that has yet to understand the full meaning of INTERNAL DEMOCRACY.

    An Appeal Panel member was rumored to have sold her SOUL to the the Devil while another said he wouldn’t bulge.. And the Devil danced openly to the admiration of his sheer friends ,not knowing it was his final dance to shame , to looming scorn and coming humiliation.

    He is not a Prophet yet he made himself one without the approval of God nor his recognition by the people.

    Our weapons in this combat are simple ;
    1) We shall offer Prayers.

    2) We shall not compromise with wrong and Evil.

    What is important is to make sure that our cause is NOBLE.

    To National Executive Members, what do you all stands for? Would you make virtues of Evil doings?

    However, I must warn ,that the scope and coverage of your articulation must be Catholic and all embracing.

    The balancing scale of WEIGHT to the consequences of your actions in steadiness lies within your August Community there in Abuja and the people are awaiting for your nearer to death of the Party’s EXISTENCE in Ondo ,in other places and in the hearts of those who voted for your Party without the dictates from a SAWDUST CAESAR here in Yoruba land. Yorubas voted Buhari only from their knowledge of his requisite calibre and sane cavil but not because someone ordered ‘SO’.

    Also be warn, that 2015 election may be re-enacted the OPPOSITE way if reliance on a leader, a dictator, an abuser ,and an Evil doer is sustained.

    “To before warned is to before harmed”.
