OpenLife Nigeria reports that Abdullahi Dauda, spokesman for a pressure group within the All Progressives Congress, APC, called, “Concerned APC Members,” has averred that President Muhammadu Buhari has breached the All Progressives Congress, APC constitution.
His assertion stems from Friday’s decision by President  Buhari to approve the timetable for the party’s congresses.
The current arrangement, in the estimation of Abdullahi Dauda, is characterized by intrigues by power blocs within the APC which have started the scramble for the control of the party’s structures, a few days after the approval and release of new dates for its ward, local government and state congresses.
His grouse also includes the elongation of governor Buni led national interim committee.
The timetable stipulates that ward congresses will hold on July 24, 2021 followed by local government congresses on August 14, 2021, and state congresses on September 18, 2021.
Dauda said, “First, let me say we are opposed to the tenure elongation given to Governor Buni and others. It is part of what we have campaigned against right from the beginning.
“Now, what they want to do is to install stooges from the ward, local government and state levels so that they can decide who becomes anything in the party in 2023. “We will not take it because this party belongs to all of us.
“A political party is not a one-man show. Without our constitution, the President has the powers to extend the tenure of anybody he wants in the APC but our party is built on its constitution, that constitution does not give the President the powers he has exercised on this issue.
“We believe that the President was misled by these ambitious governors and we hope he will see a reason to reverse it. This is not a dictatorship; it is a democracy. We will write letters to party stakeholders and the president to reverse this unconstitutional decision and if that fails, we will tell you what we are doing next.”
