Senator Dino Melaye has disclosed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, would break up before the 2023 elections.
Melaye, former senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, said APC is not a political party but a Non-Governmental Organization, NGO.
He also explained that the ruling party faced an imminent implosion due to the “illegality” of the Governor Mai Mala-Buni-led Caretaker Committee.
The former APC chieftain noted that Buni’s appointment as caretaker chairman contravenes Section 183 of the 1999 Constitution as well as the Article 17(iv) of APC Constitution.
Melaye, a staunch critic of the APC government spoke in a statement he titled: “The illegality or otherwise of the appointment of Governor Mai Mala Buni as the APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.”
The statement reads partly: “That is why I concluded in many of my interviews that APC is an NGO and not a political party.
“A party that has no functional National Working Committee and no Board of Trustees in six (6) years lacks the basic ingredients that makes up a political party by law. This will give birth to an implosion that must come.”
