APC Leadership is Collapsing, they Cannot run any Organization – Buhari’s aide, Prof Sagay

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Itse Sagay, has described the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as a failure.

Sagay, who made the declaration also maintained that the leadership style of the party is “lily-livered” and weak.

Speaking with The Nation, Sagay said, “As for the leadership of the APC, I think they are the most unprincipled group of people. They are lily-livered, weak, and cannot run any organisation. The whole party is collapsing under them.

“They cannot control anybody. In fact, they’re now encouraging and accepting ‘rogue elephants’, pampering people who are destroying the party, saying ‘let’s not annoy them too much’, but they’re destroying the APC house. So, I think the APC leadership is weak, is too compromising and is certainly a failure as far as I’m concerned.”

Sagay also stressed that the President Muhammadu Buhari reserves the exclusive prerogative to decide how long Ibrahim Magu remains as the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

“Magu can act indefinitely. The Senate does not have jurisdiction in this matter. It is the President who does because of Section 171 of the Constitution. This government is being a bit gentle, not wanting to ruffle feathers. Maybe that’s why they’re politicians and in government.

“If people like me who are not politicians were there, these people (senators) would have heard a different message. I’d have rammed things through and damned them to go and do whatever they like, and let’s see who would come on top. I believe that ultimately, righteousness, a good cause, a belief in principle will prevail. We’re dealing with people who are undergoing all sorts of investigations; they cannot face the righteous,” he said
