Crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State took a new turn Wednesday as some aggrieved party members loyal to the State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq beat up the State Caretaker Chairman, Bashir Bolarinwa.
The aggrieved members and supporters of the Caretaker Chairman were seen throwing chairs and weaponizing sighted objects at each other in the venue of the stakeholders meeting.
The party membership committee headed by Senator John Danboi had arrived the State to commence the party membership/revalidation exercise but was disrupted over who is the authentic State Caretaker Chairman between Bashir Bolarinwa and Abdulahi Samari.
But the State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq at another location flagged off the registration exercise where he had his membership revalidated.
Meanwhile, in another location at Ila-orangun, Bisi Akande, pioneer interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress has described the ongoing party’s membership registration and revalidation as a sheer waste of scarce resources affirming that the party might be lacking comprehension and matrix of the modern-day technology.
The former governor of Osun State who was speaking from his home town where the APC membership registration and revalidation committee flagged off the exercise described the timing as inappropriate being less than a rational period after the initial registration was done.
He also expressed reservation on having a caretaker committee for APC but urges the APC Caretaker Executive Committee to resist all temptations of sit-tight syndromes that usually characterized most handpicked authorities in most developing countries.
