The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has expressed worry that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, may split, if the matters that need attention within the party are not resolved,
Speaking ahead of the 2023 general elections, Governor Ganduje stated that the many political structures that came together in 2014 to form the APC, still see themselves as they were originally, rather than what they became after the merger.
He noted that 7 years after the merger that brought the APC to power in 2015, the party is still a mixture of political parties struggling to see themselves as one.
Governor Ganduje said this at a Town Hall meeting, organised by the APC Constitutional Review Committee of the North-West geopolitical zone, which held in Kano State, adding that, the expected unity and solidarity that is expected in the party, is yet to be established.
He however expressed optimism that such issues can be resolved by the efforts of the Committee, and all APC members can come onboard to work together for the party’s progress.
His words: “APC as a party started as a mixture of ACN, ANPP, APGA, PDP, CPC… You see that is a mixture of various elements trying to make a compound.
“But unfortunately, up till now, APC is still a mixture, and has not graduated to the next level to become a compound.
“Those who read Chemistry, know the difference between a mixture and a compound. A mixture is something that you can easily separate its particles if you use ions, while in a compound, any part you remove it will still be the same.”
Also speaking, the Chairman of the Review Committee, North-West zone, Dr. Tahir Mamman, noted that the Committee is committed to the efforts of reconciling all aggrieved members, so that the APC will continue to be the ruling party in Nigeria, for the foreseeable future.
