All Progressives Congress (APC) will collapse soon - Presidency

The Presidency on Sunday boasted that it was not perturbed by “the parade of the All Progressives Congress.”

It said it was evident that the party was suffering from a leadership deficiency and hence its penchant for embarking on journeys in search of leaders to give it direction.

The Presidency, through the Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, therefore predicted that the APC would soon collapse.

Okupe, in an interview with journalists after addressing a press conference on the achievements of President Goodluck Jonathan in Lagos, was apparently referring to the visit of the opposition party leaders to former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday.

The APC leaders had also paid a similar visit to a former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.

But the APC, through one its leading members,Rotimi Fashakin, said the Jonathan Presidency had since “lost direction and does not really know how to constructively engage the myriads of problems that are besetting it.”

Okupe however expressed the view that members of the APC seemed to have forgotten that God had a hand in their search for capable leaders.
He said, “The APC boat is destined for the Red Sea and in fact, I remember that when we went to Israel, we prayed to God to remove all the people troubling Nigeria. So, by what is happening now, I believe that God is working quietly to gather these people.

“By the time Jonathan defeats those giants, God will take all the glory and people will know that the APC is heading for failure.”
Okupe accused the APC leaders of insincerity, saying “when a Kwakwanso (apparent reference to Kano State Govenor …. Kwakwanso) was in the Peoples Democratic Party, he was corrupt but now, he is a saint.”

Kwakwanso is one of the five governors that recently dumped the PDP for the APC.

Okupe also used the opportunity to assure Nigerians that Jonathan would not sweep the allegations against the Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, under the carpet.

He, however, explained that it was on record that the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation which investigated the purchase of two bulletproof cars at a whopping N255m did not convict Oduah of corruption.
Okupe said, “You should know that the House has not convicted the minister of corruption but they said she did not follow due process in the purchase of the cars.

“You should however have known that punishment is given to the guilty but you must ascertain before the guilty is punished. I believe that the Presidency will do something about the allegation and I can assure you that the matter will not be swept under the carpet.”
