A Fresh crisis has hit the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the party’s failure to win the Anambra governorship election.


A group of party stakeholders on November 11 demanded the immediate resignation of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) led by Yobe State governor Mai Mala Buni, which has been running the affairs of the APC in the absence of a National Working Committee (NWC).

APC candidate in the Anambra gubernatorial poll Andy Uba finished a distant third with 43,285 votes.

Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Chukwuma Soludo won the election with 112,229 votes while Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came second with 53,807 votes.

Uba, the APC candidate, did not win any local government area in the election.

Ozigbo of the PDP and candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) Ifeanyi Ubah – who finished fourth – won one local government area each.

Some APC stakeholders are blaming the Buni-led caretaker committee for the party’s poor showing in the Anambra election.

Speaking for a group of APC stakeholders at a press conference in Abuja on November 11 a party member Ayo Oyalowo said the Buni-led caretaker committee was responsible for the party’s failure to ‘win an election it had every chance of winning’.

The stakeholders declared that the caretaker committee had failed and should therefore resign immediately.

“Another crystal clear evidence of the failure of the caretaker committee is the outcome of the Anambra gubernatorial election.

“While it is sad that the APC came a dismal third in an election it had every chance of winning, it would have been a magic if the party had performed better than it did, especially considering that the candidate of the party Senator Andy Uba emerged through a process that was completely strange to the ideals of the APC,” Oyawolo said.

The stakeholders also blamed the caretaker committee for the emergence of factions in several state chapters of the APC, a development which led to parallel ward, local government and state congresses.

The group said the caretaker committee “conducted what is arguably the worst ward, local government and state congresses since the formation of the party in 2013”.

Oyawole added that the congresses, rather than putting the party on strong footings has created further divisions and disenchantment among party members.
