In fresh crises in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), a faction known as Progressive Youth Movement has expressed their anger at how the President Muhammadu Buhari is handling the affairs of the party.
The faction, on Monday also replaced Yobe state governor, Chairman of APC Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) with Mustapha Audu.
According to Daily Post, Audu said that the party will form a National Reconciliation Committee to reconcile aggrieved members before the February 26, 2022 national convention.
However, reacting, the APC National Secretary, John Akpan Udoedehe, said the group’s actions borders on treason.
He said: “However laughable, the criminal attempt of the purported group to usurp the leadership of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC now bothers on treasonable felony.
“Relevant security bodies must now check and address their unscrupulous activities. The attention the purported group seeks will not be given to them by the party.
“We can only advise that the general public completely disregard them. They are not registered members of the APC and are being used by opposition elements and fifth columnists to cause confusion.
“As widely reported, the successful meeting between the APC leadership, Progressive Governors’ Forum and the President produced February 2022 as the timeframe for the National Convention”.
