Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has responded in the All Progressives Congress , APC, to the leadership crisis.
Wike said he is praying the ruling APC will remain in crisis.
The governor appeared on Arise Television and said the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, would benefit from the APC crisis.
The governor has clarified that he wants PDP back to power, so we will continue to pray that APC will stay in crisis.
He said, “I am glad APC is in crisis. It’s not my business to help APC stand together.
“Remember that under Ali Modu Sheriff and APC we also had our own crisis rejoicing about it then. My prayer is for them to continue to be in crisis. We took on another state.
“APC is not really a political party, sadly. They just came together to seize power.
“I want my party to be in control and so I can’t hope that APC does not have a crisis. I hope they keep on making mistakes every day and my party will keep rising.
Recall that an Appeal Court ‘s suspension of APC’s National Leader, Adams Oshiomhole, had led to a party leadership crisis.
Following the crisis, the National Executive Council of the party, the NEC, had disbanded its Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee, NWC.
The NEC party immediately organized a caretaker committee to ensure the party’s smooth functioning before its National Convention.
APC’s NEC appointed the Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, to head the Caretaker Committee.
During the meeting, President Muhammadu Buhari urged aggrieved members to suspend all court matters in the interest of the party.
The president had lamented that the party’s fortune was in jeopardy, hence the need for unity.
