Former Works Minister, Sen. Adeseye Ogunlewe has said that plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to hold on to power after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure in 2023 might not materialise.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Lagos said this in an interview with Vanguard.
He said that Buhari and money were the only two things holding the APC together, noting that the party would crumble should Buhari be out of the ballot.
If they don’t do the needful, everything they are doing is just a waste of time. Nigeria has nowhere to go unless they restructure. Let Buhari get out from the stage, APC would crumble. I can bet you there would be no APC. APC is Buhari, Buhari is APC. That was why most of them lost their constituencies even the chairman of the party lost his constituency but he was bragging that he was able to help the President win with four million votes. Everybody in the party is bragging that they made sure President Buhari returned. That is all the glory but when the man is not contesting what are they going to do or who are they going to campaign with? During his campaign, Buhari said the electorate should vote for anybody they like after voting for him. APC struggled to retain states it had before. Are they not seeing the danger? In another two years, there may be no APC. They will crumble because they are not united but just surviving on the money. Apart from Buhari, every other thing in APC is money.
