We Won’t Accept Buhari, APC’s Offers — R-APC


We Won’t Accept Buhari, APC’s Offers — R-APC



Members of the
Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), a splinter group in the
ruling APC, said they would not budge over the latest overtures being
made by the presidency and other APC key stakeholders to its leaders,
especially Senate President Bukola Saraki.


 



In a statement by Prince Kassim Afegbua,
its National Publicity Secretary, the group said they were amused at the
fact that those who boasted that they won’t lose sleep over R-APC were
going about every night trying to reconcile with R-APC leaders.





He said that act of double-standard by leaders of the APC was what gave rise to the R-APC few weeks ago.





Speaking further, R-APC said it was
surprised seeing President Muhammadu Buhari holding meetings with Saraki
after his court victory.





He expressed amazement at the fact that
the president who had earlier said he won’t hold any meeting with nPDP
leaders was now holding series of meetings with Saraki and others.





Part of the statement reads: “We, members
of the R-APC, find it very amusing that those who boasted that they
won’t lose sleep over our altruistic action, have been hopping from door
to door pleading with our members not to leave by dangling juicy
carrots and promising them heaven and earth.





“Such level of double standard is the
reason why the R-APC was birthed in the first place because the
leadership is not one that keeps promises and it’s the reason why no one
should take the APC serious.


“It is interesting to suddenly see Mr.
President holding meetings with the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki,
reportedly promising mouth-watering offers; the same leader who was
ridiculed, scandalised, demonised, criminalised and called all sorts of
names by agents of the presidency just to give the Senate president a
bad name in order to hang him.





“As soon as the Supreme Court gave a
resounding verdict on the trumped up and frivolous charges against the
Senate president, Mr. President suddenly felt a need to praise the
judiciary for standing on its own. Power as they truly say, must be a
crazy aphrodisiac.





“Never a time has the number 3 citizen of
Nigeria been so dehumanised, criminalised and disgraced in such
whimsical manner while all the present reconciliators kept
conspiratorial silence, waiting for the sledge hammer to fall on the
Senate president.





“They tried all tricks, mounted all manner of pressures, raised all dubious allegations, just to nail the Senate president.





“They were short of calling him a
promoter of armed robbery; they linked his name to the Offa robbery and
improvised all bills to rubbish the institution of the legislature. They
stripped him naked in the marketplace and now desperately trying to
bath him with ornaments in the inner fortress of Aso Rock.





“The chairman of the Code of Conduct
displayed magisterial arrogance in prosecuting the Senate president, but
all that fell by the wayside as the Supreme Court gave one of its
landmark judgments in recent time by giving him a clean bill of health.





“Pronto, all the political conspirators
in the APC swoop into dubious reconciliation assignment, hopping from
door to door at the thick of the night to strike deals of
reconciliation.





“Those who said they won’t lose sleep
over the R-APC, have become sleepless in the last two weeks. Does anyone
need to be reminded that caveat emptor should be the operative words?





“Those who pleaded in the past, short of
kneeling before their subordinates, ended up in the political belly of
their benefactors when the re-election was concluded.





“It is an albatross that some people are
still carrying till date. Ex


amples abound in this our democracy and it
is ringing a bell in our consciousness every now and then.





“This government is never a promise keeper and some of the promises contained in the manifestos of the APC have been jettisoned.





“The president who has held himself in
the inner sanctuary of the Presidential Villa is all of a sudden opening
his doors to one meeting or the other all in the name of re-election.”





The group noted that it was too late for them to change their position.





“Just to make the point that it is too
late in the day. The train has left the station. Leopards cannot change
their spots no matter how much one tries to tame them.





“We enjoin all our members to remain
steadfast and resolute in defending their rights and taking the
appropriate action in defence of democracy.





“This democracy must survive on ethical
grounds and not on lawlessness and exclusion. It must provide a level
playing grounds for all participants.





“Those who prevented some persons from
visiting their states in the name of politics have suddenly realised
that they need the services and support of those persons.





“They are now pleading, ready to submit
to all demands. Who does not know that won’t work because examples have
shown that political agreements are often observed in the breach.





“This is to inform our members nationwide
that we are still maintaining our stand against the APC and no amount
of carrots, intimidation, and harassment can dissuade us in our shared
commitment to rescue this democracy,” the group added.
