- Bisi Akande has called on the National Executive Committee to resolve the crisis in APC
- He said the internal squabbles in the party will be the end of the ruling party if not resolved fast
Chief Bisi Akande, the former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called on the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) to settle the internal crisis in the party to prevent it from breaking up.
The former chairman reportedly said the factionalisation in the party will do a lot of damage to the ruling party and urged the party to control such crisis when it arises, Tribune reports.
Akande made this statement on Tuesday, May 22, during a book launch of a 640-page autobiography of a former leader of the Kwara state House of Assembly, Chief Wole Oke, titled, “Omopeninun, The Myth, The Reality".
He said: “I think the National Executive Committee of the party is going to sort it out depending on the circumstances of each state. It ought not to have happened but I don’t know why they happened. Now that it has happened it is the duty of the national executive council to look at it say which one is genuine or the other one is causing parallel congress.
“Crisis will definitely affect fortune of any party. But it is the duty of the party to control it."
