Taraba APC Stakeholders Threaten To Burn Their Brooms

The crisis rocking the Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have taken a nosedive as some critical stakeholders of the party are threatening to collapse the entire party structure into another political party, following what they called negligence of the chapter of the party by the national leadership.

A stakeholder who spoke to our correspondent in confidence on Sunday said that the party has done very well in ensuring that President Muhammadu Buhari gets overwhelming support in the state since 2015 but was disappointed that the President has never reciprocated the gesture to the party.

He said that the failure of the President to appoint another Minister for Taraba several months after he dropped the then Minister of Power Saleh Mamman has shown clearly that the President may not have the interest of the party at heart especially now that the party is warming up for another general election.

“In 2015, the APC gave the President overwhelming support in Taraba. Infact, you will remember that the crowd that came out to welcome him was so much that it led to a stampede and the death of several persons. The only thing we got was the minister of Women Affairs who later left the party ahead of the 2019 elections. We went into that election almost naked. Even at that, we still have him landslide in Taraba.

“Now again, after the 2019 elections, the President appointed someone who was little known in the party and he could not galvanize the party. But at least he was there. Sadly, we are facing the next general elections and there is no clear plan for the party. Several months after the President sacked the minister, Taraba state has remained with a minister and no serious national appointee. This is detrimental for the party.

“We had hoped that the President will look at the records and see those that actually worked for the party over the years and appoint someone who has the track record of bringing the people together so that all the issues bothering the party could be addressed and yet nothing is been done. So what is the point staying in the party? As it is, the party needs a leader apart from the state officials who can bring all the stakeholders together to sort out our issues and prepare ahead of 2023.

“I can tell you in confidence that already consultation is underway to move the party structure in Taraba to another party. What is the point staying when we are not appreciated and have been abandoned by our leaders? What is the motivation here when hard work and absolute loyalty counts as nothing? It is this same action that cost the party Taraba state governorship in 2019. We can not sit back and watch that happen again.

“To further worsen the situation, we learnt that some people in government are lobbying for some persons who are either not party members at all or are, at best, Fairweather members, to get tickets and appointments. What message are they trying to send to those that have worked faithfully and tirelessly for the party? So don’t be surprised if you wake up tomorrow to witness the death of the APC and birth of a new party in the state”.

The APC has been through some challenging times in the state with some attributing it to a lack of clearly acceptable leader of the party at the state level who can bring all the stakeholders to a round table and sort out their differences in a manner that will be tolerable by all parties involved.

Another member of the party Alhaji Sani Umar noted that the reward system of the party seems to work well everywhere else except in Taraba state.

Umar said that “the APC does not consider Taraba chapter of the party for anything at all. As a state where the President won election back to back even though the PDP is the ruling party in the state, it is sad that we are not considered for appointments and other good things that come with been in leadership.

Anambra State 2021 Governorship Election Sets to be Nullified

The Anambra state November 6 governorship election petition tribunal was held in the early hours of today Saturday 15th, Jan, 2022, Chrysora Media reports.

The tribunal was relocated to Ilorin, the capital of Kwara state for some reason not yet known to Chrysora Media as well as the public.

Information from our correspondence in Ilorin, the venue of the tribunal hearing indicates that APGA has filed her responses.

But curiously, INEC is yet to obey the tribunal order granting access to APC and Andy Uba to inspect all the electoral materials used during the election.

We were also told that INEC has not issued Andy Uba with the CTC of the results as collated and announced on November 6 and 9, 2021.

The attitude of INEC should disturb every discerning mind. The electoral commission has continued to act in a manner which suggests that the election was never free, fair and credible.

So far, Andy Uba who is the major party in the tribunal has a case against APGA, Soludo and INEC.

It is not to be suprising if Andy Uba is declared winner or the November 6 governorship election is nuliffied. The court works with the evidence before it.

Soludo And Obiano Fight Intensifies As Obiano Sets To Release List Of Inauguration Committee

Because of the anger incurred as a result of the 80 man Transition Committee list set up by the Anambra State Gov-Elect, Prof Soludo, the outgoing government is set at any moment from now to release a list of members of the inauguration committee.

The list of the inauguration committee will be populated by his boys and trusted allies as a retaliation against the incoming administration.

Chrysora Media learnt from AIF Media that about 600 million naira has been budgeted for the inauguration and that the incoming administration sees such amount for only inauguration as ridiculous.

He, the incoming admin was said to have angrily told those close to him that he would prefer being sworn-in an office than wasting a whooping sum of 600 million naira on his inauguration.

In a related development, there are also disagreements on the collection of IGR. Chrysora Media also learnt from AIF Media that major IGR points are being contracted out by an administration that will leave office in less than two months without consulting the incoming.

The fight is becoming more intensified and obvious. We will keep waiting for the outcome as Chrysora Media is set to keep updating you.

Buni-led Panel To Meet On Tuesday Over APC Convention

The national caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet on Tuesday to discuss the convention of the party.

TheCable learnt that the decision of the caretaker committee to meet is coming on the heels of a meeting of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF).

“Following Sunday’s scheduled meeting of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, the party’s caretaker committee will meet on Tuesday, 18th January, 2022 on the convention,” a source said.

Last week, Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau state, said the exact date of the convention planned for February will be announced after a meeting of the APC governors on Sunday.

“By Sunday, we will tell you when we’re doing the convention. We have taken a date already,” Lalong had said.

“We said we are going to do a convention in February and we are still working for the convention. As far as I’m concerned, except things change from another angle, we’re working for our convention in February.”

However, no date was communicated after the meeting.

In November, Atiku Bagudu, chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), said President Muhammadu Buhari endorsed February 2022 for the APC to hold its convention.

“So, the governors, based on all these, suggested that the party and the president should graciously consider February and the president is favourably disposed to the suggestion,” Bagudu had said at the time.
