Stay back and form a formidable party - APC tells defecting PDP members

John Oyegun, the national chairman of APC said today Saturday April 11th that the gale of defections by politicians was not good for Nigeria’s political development. Mr. Oyegun, who spoke to newsmen in Benin shortly after casting his vote, advised those defecting to the winning party to rather form a formidable opposition to enrich the nation’s democracy.
“Many opposition party members have defected to APC just because they lost out, that is not good for political development. One would have advised that opposition members should stay where they are, and form a formidable opposition party.” Mr. Oyegun said.
He described the governorship and houses of assembly elections as “the most decent, orderly and peaceful” ever conducted in Edo. Meanwhile, the APC national chairman won the election in his polling unit. Oredo East: Ward 2, Unit 1 Polling Unit, the first time since 1991 when he was elected governor.

Nigerian politicians are chameleons. These fair-weathers lack dignity.
Membership of political parties in the country is not driven by any ideological conviction. Party discipline has been thrown to the wind. It's a case of garbage in; garbage out. Our politicians are like sheep without shepherd. Smite the shepherd, the sheep will scatter.
There needs to be decorum/sanity in the way politicians decamp to the ruling party. Such convergence is inimical to the genuine aspiration and growth of a democratic system.
Such scenario will only incapacitate the efficient functioning of the democratic mechanism.
This is why decent democracies across the globe institutionalized an effective federal structure. Unfortunately, Nigeria which prides herself as a federal system has all her powers being concentrated at the centre.
Therefore, we witness all manners of centripetal and convoluted assembly of strange bedfellows. Abuja has become a home of pilgrimage for political desperadoes. They have all become like lost souls in search of financial salvation.
Nigeria lacks a definite structure; Nigeria needs restructuring. Nigeria needs a people's constitution. Decree number 24 is the military device to distract the political class.
Sovereignty belongs to the people. A participant political culture is a sine qua non for the Nigeria of our dreams. Let's not rest on our our laurels.

Ojukwu must be turning in his grave at what Peter Obi did to his party.The APGA had a great showing in 2011.If they hadn't allowed money(greed) to tear them apart,they'll be giving APC and PDP a run for their money like APC is doing with PDP.

I'm deeply ashamed of my Ibo brothers and sisters.No one tears us apart but ourselves.Chief Bola Tinubu started his party and thru cuts here,mergers there,whether we like him or not,he's strategically placing his party in the main arena.first as the main opposition party and now as the ruling party at least for the next few years.

But like in the civil war,and like in Lagos,we think with our pockets rather than our hearts and brain.And we wonder why people insult us.You want to know why?WE CAN BE BOUGHT!SHAME!

That's the 1st sensible statement i have ever read from Mr. Oyegun

Emmanuel Apalowo said...

I've always said the same. Nigeria needs at least two strong competing parties so that citizens can always choose the best

Jules Louis said...

So if they weren't told they won't know. That's why d ibos doesn't have a party. Peter obi who could have continued from where Ojukwu stopped defected from APGA to PdP and now APGA is loosing out. If only they can stick to a party and make it strong. But no, every one want to join d ruling party until they fail again. #disloyalty#

ado ali said...

Politicians in Nigeria don't have that patience and decency, neither do they have the credibility or focus. Mr Oyegun have mercy, don't send them away. Simply create an IDP (INTERNALLY DISPLACED POLITICIANS) Camp for the political immigrants.

Anonymous said...

He has spoken well, Nigerian Politicians have no shame. If APC members had decamped to the PDP party who would have formed the formidable team that led Buhari to power. Decamp or not Buhari won't answer you once you have a dented name or record. EFCC will still do their job on you.

Chai...see washing! I can imagine how dey feel ryt now

Anonymous said...

The reality is that even if the ruling party looses, they may influence how policies are implemented. So it does not matter. The opposition can influence development that ordinary citizens will benefit from as well. Actually gains of democracy lies on how opposition can influence the way ruling party governs by presenting an alternatives.

You are talking absolute rubbish! APGA did not have the financial base that APC had (Lagos State) to grow properly. Also APGA did not have a powerfull presidential candidate fronting it. If CPCC did not merge with ACN, where will they be now?

Actually, I don't think you are Igbo (your spelling "Ibo" gives you away), you a just a mischief maker typing nonsense that is totally unrelated to the subject matter being discussed. GO AND GET A LIFE! IGBOS WILL NOT FALL INTO THAT TRAP OF SUPPORTING APC AFFILIATED APGA!!!!

Good advice to greedy PDP members.

Yes he said it all, they should stop running to APC and they should remain in their PDP party. people deceive people party and APC also wins in Oredo ward 8. I cast my vote in Unit 7. (APC 73 vote) (PDP 48 vote) (Void 7 vote) (PPA 7 vote) Unit 8. (APC 64 vote) (PDP 43 vote) (PPA 4 vote) (void 1 vote) Unit 9. (APC 50 vote) (PDP 33 vote) (void 11 vote) (ACD 1 vote) (PPC 3 vote) (ACNPN 1 vote) Unit 10. (APC 74 vote) (PDP 72 vote) (void 8 vote) Unit 11. (APC 75 vote) (PDP 63 vote) (PPA 6 vote) (NCP 1 vote) (void 8 vote) (NNP 1 vote) (PAP 2 vote) (CPP 1 vote) (PPN 1 vote) (CAN 2 vote). (APC got 336 vote) (PDP got 259 vote) (PPA got 17 vote) (void 35 vote) the election in my ward where I cast my vote was peaceful in everywhere in Benin city. Sai Buhari all the way! #ihavedecided to vote for #change!

Awon ole gbogbo my advise: APC must not recognise them they are not honourable pple they are out to corrupt APC like they did PDP just imagine somebody dt followed Jonathan today and Jonathan lost next minute we don see am for buhari side what is d meaning of that? Its not good for our politics really. God will help us

That is not the best advice for detectors from PDP .they have end stage cancer PDP so the party has to die and they need to give birth to a new party with credible members so that they can start anew and form opposition for the right reasons. Meanwhile detectors should not come to APC until they have been sanctified physocologically fit and have gone through 6 months rehabilitation and 6 months evaluation on their mental state and moral decadence on what is wrong or right before they join any party

5:33am,I am entitled to my opinion and your telling me I'm not of Ibo extraction based on ibo/igbo is not relevant to me.The last time I checked,my lineage is still the same.

As usual,we pick on the mundane and ignore the problem.I maintain my views and stand by it.APGA is our own party to build or to destroy.cpc/anpp had a share of the north.ad/ac had a share of the SW.APGA had the east.

Our APGA leaders rather than sell us out and gradually reduce our potency by abandoning our ship should have nipped and tucked here and there.In 2011,the ACN negotiated with the presidency without jumping ship (Peter obi).They gained much needed funds to fight another day(2015) whilst strategizing its merger plans.I hope you see what I'm saying,chief Tinubu negotiated.Give and take whilst maintaining control.

My tribe is prominent and successful wherever they choose to settle.by now,apga would have a formidable number ANYWHERE.Atleast enough for us to be respected thereby allowing us dictate or point to good political positions.I can go on and on but let me leave you be.Ignorance CAN be remedied.

We blame everything,everyone,living and non living.the war was a while ago.lets learn and build on the lessons learned instead of allowing it draw us back.lets prove our mantle for our children to live on and stop going backward.

Let us pick up,dust off and forge ahead.once again,this is my three and a quarter cents.ibo/igbo,it doesn't still change my origin.
