Buhari’s Strategists Worry over Crisis in South-east APC


As the 2019 general election draws nearer, a group of political strategists working for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari is worried by the lingering crisis within the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-east geo-political zone of the country.

In a strategic paper recently prepared for the president, the group said that unless some ‘’critical and influential’’ aggrieved members of the party in the zone were reconciled with the party, it would be ‘’extremely, if not impossible’’, for APC to make any meaningful in-road to the zone in the coming general election.

Making reference to a situation where Governor Roachas Okorocha of Imo State-led group has its own factions across the zone, especially in Imo State, while side-lining the major group being led by Senator Ifeanyi Godwin Araraume, the embattled deputy governor and Senator Osita Izuanso, the strategic paper noted that ‘’making Governor Okorocha the face of APC in the South-east’’ wouldn’t help President Buhari’s political course in the 2019 general election.
