Buhari sent a strong message to Tinubu, Oshiomole by dissolving APC NWC

It is no longer news that president Buhari dissolved the National Working Committee of the ruling party, APC.

What you might not be aware of is that the president's action is a strong message to both Tinubu and Oshiomole.

The National Executive Council of the All Progressive Congress was on Thursday dissolved by President Muhammadu Buhari after a meeting held by the former Acting chairman of the party Victor Giadom.

Members of APC did not take the words of Victor Giadom seriously when he told them he was the Acting National Chairman of the party. That was when late Senator Abiola Ajimobi was appointed as the Acting National Chairman which Hilliard Eta acted on his behalf.

 Buhari recognized Victor Giadom as the acting chairman of the party when he attended the NEC meeting where those who are in Oshiomhole's camp said Victor Giadom didn't know how the hierarchy in a political party.

Although the NWC of APC has been dissolved base on Buhari's recommendation, some APC members think it was illegal. The ugly event that played last week in APC is not good for a ruling party. It made mockery of internal democracy which APC has always proclaimed.

 A strong message has been sent to Tinubu, Oshiomhole and others who are indirectly playing 2023 politics by President Buhari concerned on how to deliver his campaign promises to Nigeria and doesn't need any distraction.

President Buhari at this present time has a serious issue of insecurity, economy and the coronavirus pandemic facing his administration.

In another message sent to Tinubu, Oshiomhole and others is that even though we are friends and I allow you people to have your way, I'm still the leader of the party.

 President Buhari felt that his less interest in internal party politics just to be fair to all has been taken for granted and needed to show that he is the leader of the party.

 Buhari didn't want to interfere with Oshiomhole and Obaseki's face off because he doesn't want to be seen as taking sides.

 He made it clear to them that even though they have interest in 2023 Presidency that him Buhari as a sitting President who will hand over to the next President in 2023 have a big role to play as to who flies the APC flag.

The 2023 Presidency will be interesting in APC. Just like Tinubu is rumored to have Presidential ambition, there are also some few quiet men in APC also in the South whom Buhari trust more.
