APC Lacks Capacity To Conduct Credible 2019 Elections – Bafarawa
Former two-term governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, has expressed doubts over the ability of the APC controlled federal government to conduct credible and fair election in the country, come 2019.
The politician said this against the backdrop of the various happenings in different states as regards the conduct of APC ward congresses and primaries.
According to Bafarawa, the inability of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to put its house in order as well as the spate of killings and general insecurity in the country, does not instill any confidence that the party has the capcity to deliver the expectation of the people.
He stated further that the party does not have the capacity to preside over the affairs of a diverse and multi- ethnic country such as Nigeria.
“If the APC and its government cannot organise a peaceful, fair and credible congresses, how can it hold a general election that will most likely bring about a change of government?
“An election is a very serious event and a party or a government which cannot deal with its internal issues cannot face the reverberations of a general election.”
According to Bafarawa, “the problem with the APC is greed. Those at the commanding heights of the APC administration are driven by desperation.
“They want to hold on to power at all costs.”
“The result,” he said, “is the deadly struggle that has now manifested in the rancorous APC congresses across the country.”
