Urgent Reformation Call: #APC Stakeholders Demand Overhaul of Campaign Council Amidst Exclusion Controversy

The unveiling of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council list has ignited a firestorm of criticism from within the party’s own ranks. Loyal stakeholders have voiced their indignation over what they perceive as a blatant disregard for the principles of merit and loyalty in the selection process.

The crux of the issue lies in the exclusion of key party members who have demonstrated unwavering commitment and significant political influence. These individuals, the stakeholders argue, are instrumental in mobilizing support and securing the votes necessary for a triumphant election outcome. The omission of such pivotal figures has been labeled as a stark betrayal of the party’s ethos and a reflection of a deeply flawed reward system that favors newcomers over the devoted.

At the heart of the controversy is Engr. Lawrence Okah, the Edo State APC secretary, who is accused of engineering a list that sidelines the party’s stalwarts in favor of recent defectors. This move has raised suspicions of internal sabotage and prompted calls for his immediate resignation.

The statement issued by the concerned stakeholders details specific instances where experienced party members have been demoted or excluded altogether. For example, Chief Lucky Imasuen, who previously held the esteemed position of Director General of the Edo State APC presidential campaign council, has been relegated to a lesser role. Similarly, the exclusion of Hon. Osarobo from Ikpoba Okha has been attributed to personal animosity rather than objective decision-making.

The stakeholders’ outcry is not just about individual grievances; it is a clarion call for the APC to rectify its course as the Edo 2024 election looms. They demand a reconstituted list that truly represents the party’s collective strength and diversity, ensuring that every critical stakeholder has a role to play in the upcoming campaign.

The statement concludes with a stark warning: the APC must unite and present a cohesive front if it hopes to emerge victorious in the Edo 2024 election. Anything less would be a disservice to the party’s aspirations and the people it seeks to represent.
