The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Timi Frank has said the party may not survive beyond 2019 unless urgent steps are taken to rebuild public confidence.
Frank said this while speaking to journalists in an interview in Abuja, on Tuesday.
He explained that the reported “revolt” by state governors over recent ambassadorial appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari, and the open protest by the party leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu over happenings within the party, are clear signs that all is not well.
The party spokesman said there is nothing personal about his call for the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun; and the need to overhaul the party.
According to him, his desire to see a better APC was his motivation.
He said, “The truth is, I’m speaking the position and minds of majority of our party leaders who believe that the National Chairman has to resign and he must resign, whether he likes it or not.
“I’m not alone in this. At the appropriate time, more leaders will speak out. We have between now and February, 2017. If we don’t harmonise our differences, some of us will have no choice but to take the next step to pursue our political future.
“If the crisis within the party is not resolved, there will be no APC in 2019.”
