With the crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in several states over the ongoing membership re-registration and revalidation, Rt. Rev. Funso Awe, a former governorship candidate in Lagos State, has predicted that the ruling party will face unprecedented crisis that may lead to its implosion between now and the 2023 general elections.
Speaking exclusively with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Awe, a retired priest of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) and now the Bishop of the Orthodox Anglican Church, Lagos Mainland Diocese, described APC as a conglomerate of several political parties that fused for the actualisation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ambition.
Awe, who contested the governorship of Lagos under the platform of the National Conscience Party (NCP), maintained that with President Buhari having actualised his ambition and helped to win a second term, the objective of forming the APC had been actualised and that there was nothing more to hold the ruling party together, even as the party had begun a journey to Golgotha.
