The Presidential Aide on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Ita Enang, has warned that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may risk losing its presidential bid in 2023 if the party fails to sack the Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee.
Enang said that the significance of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State Supreme Court judgment will be very dangerous for the party going forward, stressing that even if the party fields presidential candidate in 2023, under the Buni-led caretaker committee, it would be disastrous, since the party doesn’t have an executive known to law to field candidates for elections.
The former lawmaker, who spoke on Arise Television on Tuesday, said: “All the seven justices of the Supreme Court on Akeredolu versus Jegede agreed that the APC as it is today cannot exist as a political party because it doesn’t have democratically-elected executives of the party. We had elected officers of the party led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole. He resigned and the constitution of the party has provided a succession process. Since Oshiomhole resigned, there has been a first, second, third and fourth person to take over leadership.
