A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State, Ahmed Lawal has cautioned the national leadership of the party against power rotation saboteurs within the party.
Speaking with newsmen in Yola, the state capital on Wednesday, Lawal described the activities of some elements in the party during the governorship election in the state as repugnant to the planned power-shift idea of the party.
Lawal, who is the Organizing Secretary of the APC in Adamawa State accused some prominent members of the party of engaging in anti party activities, advising the leadership of the party to identify and punish all elements hell- bent on frustrating the planned power rotation to the southern part of the country in 2023.
He said: “As a party with vision for equity and fairness, the APC has already planned to shift power to the southern part of Nigeria. It is worthy of note that some political elements in northern Nigeria are opposed to the arrangement.
“They worked against APC during the last governorship elections with the aim of allowing the opposition PDP to win more states. This was done to build the PDP to be formidable to wrestle power from APC in 2023 against the interest of the south.
“I am urging the leadership of the party at the national level to review the last governorship elections with a view to identifying those elements and wield the stick on them.
“The south supported us to rule for eight years. It will be bad if we in turn, betray them and still retain power in the north.”
