Any political party that isled by very erratic,whimsical and vindictive leader will always pushtheir ignorance of the basic tenets of seeing their members as subjects. In our type of democracy, the people are the masters and the leadersonly their servants but reverse is the case in our political system nowand it has beginning to boomerang on som of the parties,unfortunately,the ruling party in Nigeria, All progressive Congress (APC). The main opposition PDP is not even fighting the ruling party has it wasexpected but the APC within itself created an internal opposing forcesthat usually generates series of unquenchable implosion in the party andgradually wearing and weaking the party thereby fertilising the growthof the major opposition party PDP. Immediately Oshiomole emmerge as the chairman of APC, the situation wethought was going to improved got devastated by the style of the veryloquacious National chairman. A clique grew in the party that dictatesto the chairman against the wishes of other clique. Calculation for 2023 began even before 2019 election, alignment andrealignment for 2023 began before 2019 election,structures againststructures for 2023 almost cost the APC it’s victory at the 2019presidential polls. This self created implosion has so far cost APC colossal failure inRivers and Zamfara state where the entire elective offices wereavoidably lost to PDP, it also caused the loss of gubernatorialvictories to PDP in Oyo,Bauchi,Imo, Adamawa, Sokoto,Benue etc while itnarrowly escaped Kano, plateau, Osun, Ogun,and Nassarawa. APC also lost the presidential election in Ondo and Edo with a sittinggovernor of the party there.This is enough to send ominous signs and signal to the party but theinternal rancour is aggravating uncontrollably on a daily basis. Two outgoing governors are on suspension from the party now with firstterm governor. Party where a sitting governors belongs to two partiesand no disciplinary action against them until the caused the damage,party where the president who is the leader of the party could notcaution people that openly involved in anti -party activities. President Buhari is the only unifying factor in APC,he is the only gluegumming them together and he is like not having interest in bringing theagreed groups together for settlements which is going to dismember theparty before the next election unless a builder comes in to reorganisethe party. PDP with 10 governors in 2015 is boasting of 17 now and still hopeful.National assemblies leadership tussles if not well managed way becomeanother cancer on the flesh of APC.Nigerians are not thirsty of PDP now but lack of party administrationand conflict resolution mechanism is gradually killing APC and the onlyalternative for now is PDP.
