Sequel to the recent decision by the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) to aggrieved members not to go to court or face disciplinary action, the campaign council of Mohammed Sani Musa, the winner of the Niger East Senatorial Primaries has condemned the position.
The council in a statement signed by the chief coordinator, Muhammad Nma Kolo, stated that the position of the NWC contravenes justice, equity and fairness which are prerequisite in any progressive human association and institution.
According to the council, “Justice and fairness presupposes the existence of an unbiased umpire to adjudicate between conflicting parties in order to guarantee public faith, trust and confidence in any system of justice.
“Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s led APC has neglected this prerequisite and fundamental requirement of constitutional democracy by skewing the party mechanism and processes in favour of his anointed and favourite candidates,” the statement added.
The statement read further stated that, “Consequently, the claims by the spokesperson of the party that we failed to explore internal mechanism in the resolution of these conflict is a blatant falsehood, misleading and pitiable”.
“By taking a public stance in favour of candidates who stole the peoples mandate as exemplified in Niger State where our senatorial mandates were robbed in bright day light, the national chairman and his cohorts have succeeded in creating a party in which internal democracy and popular will is narrowly viewed from the lens of personal interest,” the campaign council stated.
The campaign council posited that there was “no greater indiscipline and display of disrespect for constitutionality and the people’s will than stealing the mandates of the people as expressed in direct primaries which was duly conducted under the confines of the party’s constitution and bye laws and awarding it to the highest bidder”.
