Admiral Murtala Nyako, the former Chief of Naval Staff and past Deputy Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff, and one-time Governor of Adamawa State, has dropped a bombshell to the All Progressive Congress (APC), saying the party would suffer defeat in many states because of injustice, impunity and the growing number of aggrieved people.
Nyako who arrived Adamawa State after a brief stint in a foreign country on medical checkups, said APC was the party of the ordinary people but injustices, unsolved aggrieved situations, impunity and lack of respect to the wishes of the people could cost it victory in many states.
He said, “The party neglected all cogent advice given to it at the top level and so many people are today so aggrieved in all the states such that making them to change their minds is difficult and this may cost the party victory in many states.”
He said since the party does not want to abandon impunity, injustices and complaints, aggressive protests are bound to affect the fortunes of the party.
He said the problems of the APC started during the ward, local government areas and states congresses where injustices and impunity gave birth to double congresses across the country and the lack of transparent primaries brought serious cracks into the party and APC is no longer the same.
He said if APC had listened to the words of wisdom from elders and conducted the congresses in wards, LGAs and states based on democratic tenets there wouldn’t have been such serious aggrieved population in APC now.
The APC top notcher said all efforts to rescue the party were almost slipping away by the day and elections are just by the corner; therefore it would be difficult to find amicable resolutions to all the aggrieved population in the parties who have fundamental issues against the conduct of its primaries, its ward, LGA and states congresses.
Nyako who has a cult like followings across Adamawa State and the North East said the party refused to accept sound advice which has now put the party against itself.
