The leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) Youths Renaissance has expressed deep regrets over what it described as the abysmal performance of the party in the just concluded Anambra State Governorship election despite all the assurances given to leaders and members of the party by Tony Nwoye and the Southeast leaders of the party.
This was expressed by a statement signed by its National Secretary, Mr. Collins Edwin.
“Before the election, all necessary logistics were given to the leaders
of the party in the zone to deliver victory to APC, but it looked as
if such logistics were diverted as it did not get to the intended
people in the region.
“How on earth can anyone explain the rational behind the 21/21 victory
of APGA in all the 21 Local Government Areas of Anambra State?” It wondered.
It said the group was shocked that Tony Nwoye, Chris Ngige, Uche Ekwunife, Andy Ubah and the rest could not deliver their local governments to APC.
“However, the election has exposed the insincerity of the so-called leaders of the party in the region.
“Instead of executing an all inclusive campaigns involving all members
of the party, some ‘election-cabals’ wanting to impress Buhari and get
special favour from the Presidency adopted ‘divide and rule strategy,” it added.
APC youth accused them of sharing party resources among themselves without carrying critical segments of the party along.
“In particular, Comrade Tony Nwoye was carrying himself as Governor-elect without listening to wise advice and suggestions.
“As a result, their greeds and lack of coordination have cost APC the
much needed victory in Anambra State,” it added.
The group urged President Buhari to disregard all their lies and excuses as likely reasons why APC under-performed in the race.
“Subsequently, we ask President Buhari to raise new leaders from the zone who will handle his re-election project in the Southeast region come 2019,” it appealed.
