Zoning APC chairman to North-Central a plot to destroy the party- party stakeholder

A stakeholder of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, Ambrosini Sambo has described the alleged zoning of the Chairmanship of the party to the North-Central as a huge joke and a plot to destroy the party.
Sambo said in a democratic setting, party members are allowed to contest freely for the leadership of the party which will give way for an acceptable candidate to emerge.
Recall that the Chairman of Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the APC and the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni had announced that the National Convention of the Party will hold on February 26, this year.
Sambo while speaking with journalists in Abuja said there are plans to impose a chairman on the party through the rumoured zoning of the chairmanship to the North Central.
He said zoning the Presidency to the South is understandable, but the chairmanship must not be zoned to a particular geo-political zone in order to encourage internal democracy.
“This spells doom for the party. The decision to impose this candidate from the North-Central on the party as the chairman will destabilise the party. Every well-meaning party member should not support this.
“This is the plan of the enemies APC to destroy the party which we fought so hard to build, we will resist this move. The party Chairman is open to other zones to contest”, Sambo noted.
The APC chieftain, however, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in what he described as injustice to the party before it will be too late.
“This is the time we need President Buhari to speak to the Caretaker Chairman to desist from throwing our great party into chaos by imposing someone on the party as its National Chairman”, Sambo noted.
He urged the APC to learn from the past when parties imposed leaders on its followers and how such parties ended up in chaos.
“I want to see our party win the presidential election in 2023, I want our party to also capture all the states and the National Assembly in the 2023 general election, but with the current sabotage by some persons in our party, I am afraid it may not be feasible”, Sambo added.
