The former national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said that the APC was quickly becoming a threat to the regime of President major General muhammadu Buhari (retd).
Odigie-Oyegun said this in a statement that he signed on Saturday in Abuja.
According to him, the fact remains that the effectiveness of the government is evaluated not only by its infrastructure development, but also by its policy.
He cited the cancellation of elections on 12 June 1993 by former military dictator General Ibrahim Babangida.
In a statement entitled “before it’s too late,” Odigie-Oyegun said: “our own political party, the APC, is fast becoming the single most dangerous threat to the legacy of our government and our President.
“Over the past few months, we have seen the party brazenly undermine its own principles of internal democracy and flagrantly violate all the rules of decent political participation in such a way that anyone associated with its promise of change can be accused of either hypocrisy or apostasy.”

He explained that when he joined others to form a coalition of progressives in 2012, they were driven by a deep sense of patriotism to save Nigeria, and a strong commitment to saving Nigerian democracy.
“At that time, we believed that the ship of our country was heading for the rocks. Therefore, significant progressive opposition parties, and indeed all men and women of good will, have joined forces not only to put it back on track, but also to set it on a completely different path that would restore the hopes of our people and make every Nigerian proud again of this great country.”
He urged party leaders to call a meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee and agree to create an interim leadership to manage the party’s Affairs in order to restore the party to its strong position.
