LEADESHIP of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) should better understand that Nigerians are no longer interested in their internal crisis, most especially the ongoing crisis in the National Assembly that produced Dr. Bukola Saraki as the President of the Senate and Yakubu Dogara as Speaker, against the preference of the party.

While the leadership of the party appears to be finding means of resolving the imbroglio, Nigerians are indeed irked that a party they “collectively voted into power, setting aside ethnic and religious sentiments is now enmeshed in crisis instead of working towards actualising the promised change.”

The first 30 days of Buhari in office topped discussion inside commercial busses and other places in the last few days and people have been expressing all manners of fears that the administration “may end up being another dashed hope.” One of the irked citizens said the way APC started would lead to the party’s fall.

According to him, “It won’t take a good political analyst any magic to know that this is the beginning of the end of the party. This is a motion that will end the party.

If they succeeds in resolving this one another crisis will definitely come up because it is a struggle towards 2019. The four parties that formed the APC will end up going their separate ways in the nearest future.”

He explained that if Buhari said he is building his operations to fight against corruption, he would definitely meet a stumbling block among politicians because there are many corrupt people who will do everything possible to stop the fight from getting to them or their cronies.

He however posited that if Buhari is smart, he can take advantage of the situation “call the bluff of anybody, jettison second term ambition and go ahead to take any drastic action he intends without minding whose ox is being gored within and without the party. This is the only way he can outsmart all these politicians around.”
