Former governor of Ogun State Olusegun Osoba has urged the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to learn from the mistake of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if it wants to retain power in 2019.
Ososba, in an interview with Daily Sun, charged members of the APC to step up and meet the expectations of Nigerians or be booted out from power.
The choice is now going to be clear in 2019. And as I said it would be tough. If a party messes up, a person who is popular would go and do it independently and win elections.
And any party that does not do internal democracy is doomed; not just APC. PDP had suffered it. We must learn from it and not go through the same route.
The former governor also blamed the public anger over President Muhammadu Buhari’s ill health to the poor official handling of the issue.
He cited reaction to his own public disclosure of having undergone eye and prostate surgeries recently, asserting that it was not only hypocritical, but naïve to expect that at 78 years-old, his body would remain the same as when he was much younger.topics from
