Without justice, APC crisis will continue— Dogara

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has stated that only the enthronement of justice would lead to the resolution of the crisis currently rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to a statement by his spokesperson, Turaki Hassan, Dogara spoke on Thursday at a meeting between APC members of the House and members of the newly elected national working committee of the party, led by the chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

He said the meeting took place at the National Assembly.

According to the statement, Dogara noted that although there is no human endeavour that is perfect, “APC lawmakers only expect justice, which is indivisible and universal”.

The speaker continued, “In every family whether it is a nuclear, extended or an organisation there is bound to be problem and that is because we humans that are running those institutions are not perfect ourselves. So we don’t expect perfection from any quarters.

“Our only expectation is the issue of justice and justice is indivisible. What is justice to the executive should be justice to the legislature and it should be justice to the judiciary,” Mr Dogara was quoted to have said.

“What is justice to the President and the Vice President should be justice to the Governor and it has to be justice for the members of the National Assembly, because you can’t divide justice. Once you begin to divide justice you don’t have justice.”

“And once we are able to get these things in their proper perspectives to some extent, we will be able to silence the voices of dissent within the party.

“But that we have problems is perfectly okay, but we mustn’t allow our problems to define us. Rather, we should define our problems as a party.”

Dogara expressed optimism about the ability of Oshiomhole to fix the challenges confronting the party.

He said, “I know that you come well prepared; we can only wish you well and pray for God’s additional wisdom because human wisdom won’t be enough as you navigate very treacherous terrain.

“We pray God wisdom for you.”

On his part, Oshiomhole told the lawmakers that “every person matters in our party because all party members voluntarily moved from various political platforms, and dissolved those platforms in order to give birth to the All Progressive Congress.”

He said that the idea of delivering the greater good for the greater number of Nigerian citizens is what binds the APC together and “defines us in spite of the teething problems we were bound to experience that every new organisation goes through.”

Oshiomhole had on Wednesday held a similar meeting with the Senate caucus of the party.

The meeting came as some members announced the formation of the Reformed APC.
