Plateau APC asks na­tional sec­re­tariat to dis­re­gard calls for exco dis­so­lu­tion

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

In­terim man­age­ment com­mit­tee of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Plateau State, has asked the party’s na­tional sec­re­tariat to dis­re­gard calls for the dis­so­lu­tion of the state exco and the al­le­ga­tions made by a group, ‘APC for All in Plateau’ that the state in­terim chair­man, Gen. John Sha­gaya (Rtd) is run­ning the party like his per­sonal fief­dom.

Leader of the ‘APC for All in Plateau,’ En­gi­neer Bu­lus Damshe Lak­shek had last Thurs­day led a del­e­ga­tion to the party head­quar­ters in Abuja where he is­sued a protest let­ter ac­cus­ing Sha­gaya of cre­at­ing prob­lems in the party as well as not car­ry­ing other mem­bers of the party along.

How­ever, in a state­ment made avail­able to jour­nal­ists in Jos, the state in­terim sec­re­tary, Al­haji Ibrahim Da­suki Nakande de­scribed the state­ment by the group as false stress­ing that Lak­shak de­fected from the de­funct CPC for fo­ment­ing trou­ble and cre­at­ing a fac­tion and later crossed over to the for­mer ACN and has not an­swered to the al­le­ga­tions against him.

Nakande ex­plained that “In com­plete vari­ance to their press state­ment, ev­i­dences are avail­able to show that the in­terim man­age­ment com­mit­tee of the APC, af­ter its in­au­gu­ra­tion on the 19/11/2013, has been hold­ing meet­ings with Sha­gaya pre­sid­ing over each meet­ing.

The state­ment fur­ther called on those in Lek­shak’s del­e­ga­tion to work hard to­wards the con­gresses of the party be­gin­ning April 5th “by can­vass­ing for votes to get elected into sub­stan­tive po­si­tion from the units, wards, LGAs and state rather than rant­ing like a cricket des­tined for self de­struc­tion.” He urged the gen­eral pub­lic to dis­re­gard the group and ig­nore their ac­tiv­i­ties.
