NASS Crisis: Akande Alleges Northern Conspiracy Against Yoruba

akandeFORMER governor of Osun State, Bisi Akande, has said that a large section of the South West sees the rebellion of All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the Eighth National Assembly as Northern conspiracy against the Yourba.

In a letter he publicly released late Sunday June 28, 2015, Akande wrote: “While other position seekers are waiting in the wings until Buhari’s ministers are announced, a large section of the Southwest see the rebellion as a conspiracy of the North against the Yoruba.”

Akande, former APC Interim National Chairman expressed doubt that the party’s leadership was capable of handling the situation, even as he urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the governors elected under the party’s platform to intervene in order to prevent the party from total collapse.

Akande went down memory lane on how the APC was established, and challenges that threatened its existence in the formative stage.

He said that he had it on good authority that some of those who defected to the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were planning to resuscitate the former ruling party ahead of 2019 elections.
