Former Minister for Communication and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Adebayo Shittu has decried the crisis in the party and governance, even as he expressed regret that his party has not provided leadership.
Shityu, who spoke to some journalists in Abuja over the weekend, faulted some members in leadership positions for the lingering crisis in the party.
Asked to react to the crisis in APC, Shittu said: “We worked tirelessly to ensure that we build a party which is different from anything that Nigeria has ever known. Particularly we wanted a truly progressive party which will do things differently from what those you call conservatives or corrupt politicians.
Unfortunately because of poor party leadership – both the national and my state, Oyo level – we have series of crisis which are continuing. It’s unfortunate and I feel very sorry and I feel ashamed that we have found it difficult to rarely provide requisite leadership which regards to management of our political party.”
The former minister, who served in the first tenure of this administration, said it would be wrong for anybody to associate or think that corruption is for one political party.
