I regrets joining APC – Na’Abba

Former speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’Abba,
has said he regretted leaving the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP
for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2015.
Na’Abba said this in an interview with Vanguard where he also
accused President Muhammadu Buhari of running a one-man
The ex-Speaker, whose house was burnt down for supporting the
PDP in 2011 but took the painful decision to leave for the APC,
said his expectations for leaving the PDP to APC have not been
met, adding that he only has regrets.
He said, “My experience in the APC is such that I only have regrets
to tell because I found a party that is divided and there is no unity
of purpose.
“It is a party that produced the president but the president does not
work with the party. In fact the president does not work with
anybody. He works only with himself.
“That is one of the problems that he has. A lot of the people that
worked with him for twelve years have left him because he does
not even seem to know what is happening to him.
“My experience in the APC is that in the last three years, there
were only four or five caucus meetings. The time lag between the
first one in February 2016 and the second one in October/
November 2017 was sixteen months.
“I was not invited to the fourth and fifth meetings because in an
interview with a Network I indicated my intention not to support
Buhari’s re-election in 2019.
“A situation where dissent is not tolerated in a democratic
arrangement portends danger to our democracy. Therefore, the
party and Buhari have become one and the same thing.
“APC is an amalgam of interests that came together to do away
with the PDP which by the grace of God they succeeded.
“The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in now from the
party. But instead of the president to coalesce the disparate
tendencies within the party, so that it becomes cohesive, he
decided to operate a one man show, working neither with the party
nor the National Assembly.
“The result is what we are seeing today in the congresses of the
party across the country. Today the new PDP faction in the APC is
saying it wants to opt out of the party. You can see very little of
the former ANPP in the government.
“The only visible tendencies in the government are a little of the
ACN and the CPC and even the CPC, majority of members still feel
“The party is not being operated like a party because there is no
connect between the president and the party. In almost all the
states, it is the same thing going on between the governors and
party members.
