    Osun: ‘President Buhari’s I Don’t Care Attitude Cost APC Its Victory’ – APC Chieftain


    Jul 17, 2022

    A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, John Mayaki, on Sunday claimed that the leadership style of President Muhammadu Buhari in the party led to its defeat in Osun State on Saturday.

    Recall that the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke defeated the incumbent Governor, Gboyega Oyetola.

    Mayaki in his reaction to the loss said APC lost due to President Buhari’s allowance for anti-party activities among ranking APC members.

    He further stated that the President does not care if APC collapse under his watch.

    The statement released by the APC chieftain reads, “President’s non-interference through the infamous ‘federal might’ represents a good development for the country’s democracy but it still doesn’t excuse the observed “abandonment of his obligations as the leader of the party who ought to be spearheading efforts to unite the ranks, enforce loyalty and expand political control.

    “The anti-party activities of top ranking APC members, governors and Ministers under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration are to blame for the electoral misfortune of the party in Edo and Osun states.

    “Poor reward system of the party if not checked, could impact negatively on the party just as the “I don’t care attitude” of Mr President as a party man. The president is the leader of the party and he doesn’t appear concerned if the party collapses under his watch.

    “Under President Buhari, APC governors worked against the party in Edo state similar to how figures in his cabinet have been fingered in the loss of Osun state. But Mr President won’t lift a finger to either reprimand these party saboteurs, instead, he signals tolerance that further emboldens them.”
