Hold Buni liable if mass exodus hit Kwara – BOB

The Caretaker, All Progressives Congress (APC), Kwara State chapter, Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa (BOB) has expressed fear that there would be massive defection from the ruling party in the state soon.
He also accused of the Mai Mala Buni led National caretaker executives of complacency in the handling of the crisis rocking the party at the state level.
Bolarinwa while addressing selected newsmen on the sideline of a Sallah get together for selected party stakeholders and their spouses drawn from across the 16 Local Government Areas, He expressed disappointment with the way and manner the National caretaker executives have handled the Kwara crisis thus far.
He stressed that “with all intent, they’ve not been sincere with the grievances of majority of party members.
“The national leadership of party is toying with Kwara, we’ve told them the reality on ground and they appear not to be interested in sincerely addressing the genuine grievances of majority of party members, all in the name of solidarity with their colleague.
“I want it to be on record that if mass exodus or implosion should hit Kwara APC, Buni and his people should be held liable. This is a party Kwara people built with their sweat, yet some few people are taking them for granted.
“Up till now, we’ve not seen any party membership registration in Kwara State, yet they announced extension of registration on paper and refused to send registration materials to the field.
“Isn’t that a subtle way of encouraging party members to find abode somewhere else ? Why is the National leadership of the APC hellbent on sending almost 80% of its membership strength out of the party ? What do they stand to gain ?
“I enjoin President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader of the party to rein in Buni and his colleagues, so as to harmonise all interest and guide against a calamitous implosion and mass exodus from the party ” he stressed.
On the options available to the group with the insistence of the party to continue with congresses even without settling the crisis and complaints of disenfranchisement in the party’s membership registration he said “The option open to us is we’re coming up with a concrete plan, we still have hope in this party and we’re thus not contemplating leaving the party, however if they eventually refuse to do the bidding of the majority, whatever comes of it they’ll be solely responsible.
