When the #Action Congress of Nigeria (#CAN), #Congress of Peoples Change (#CPC), and a faction of the #All Progressives Grand Alliance (#APGA) came together to form the #All Progressives Congress (#APC), they did it with the sole purpose of reforming the Nigerian political atmosphere.
However, having succeeded in achieving their set targets of not only detroning the ruling party from the presidency but also taking over the #National Assembly, #Nigerians expected that change has, indeed, arrived.
At the moment, it appears the political landscape inherited from the Peoples Democratic Party is still very much in control of proceedings. This assumptions stern from the manner the APC has gone about their affairs ever since they became in control.
On Saturday June 6th, 2015, Vanguard reported that the #Minority Leader of the 7th House of Representatives, #Femi Gbajabiamila emerged the #candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC for the House’s speakership.
Femi Gbakabiamila emerged in a controversial circumstances following an unannounced mock primaries conducted by the leadership of the party in Abuja on Saturday.
Gbajabiamila polled 154 votes out of a possible 184 votes.
But this development happened amidst heavy protest by Gbajabiamila’s rival, #Hon. Yakubu Dogara who staged a walk out from the premises with his supporters after he was announced to have polled 3 votes.
To them, the scenario was more like an ambush as the party did not tell the candidates or advitised that they were going to conduct the primaries.
