Panic in APC headquarters as Tinubu withdraws funding.

A senior chieftain of the party who spoke under the condition
 of anonymity, confided in NAIJ.com that all is not well 
the party because of Tinubu’s withdrawal of financial 
support to the party headquarters.
 “Things have gone from bad to worse,” the party chieftain 
told NAIJ.com on phone, “Ever since the refusal of President 
Buhari to fund the party activities, Asiwaju has been the sole 
financier of the party.
“But he has withdrawn his support due to the way he was 
humiliated by the party chairman in the Ondo primary.”
Asked to comment on the rumours that there are plans by 
anti-Oyegun elements in the APC to remove him and include
 his name in President Muhammadu Buhari’s 
nomination list, the party chieftain said it is true.

His words: “I can confirm that the report is true. The truth is
 even members of the APC NEC have lost confidence in 
“Why do you think they have not come out to pass a vote of 
no confidence on him, which is the norm in politics when a 
leader is under duress. 
“Majority of the NEC members are tired of Oyegun’s antics
 and they are all pre-occupied with positioning themselves 
for government appointments than staying put in party 
NAIJ.com reached out to another chieftain of the party who 
corroborated the story. He pleaded for his identity not to be 
revealed because he was not authorized to speak on such matters.
He said: “Baba (President Buhari) has not sent a kobo to the 
party since he came into office. When we went to Aso Villa 
to complain, he asked the party chairman how the monies 
for the forms sold to party aspirants was expended.
 “The party chairman could not give a reasonable
 explanation, so baba asked us to go and look for ways to 
make money for the party.
“Tinubu has been the one funding us since then because we 
could not even approach the governors knowing their 
NAIJ.com efforts to get the APC official reaction to this 
report was not successful as at the time it was published.
Yesterday, there were media reports that the national 
secretariat of the APC in Abuja has been thrown into 
darkness following the party’s failure to offset the N1.7 
million debt owed Abuja Electricity Distribution Company.
An electricity receipt pasted on the gate of the APC 
secretariat which was seen by Vanguard showed that the 
party had only recently paid N500, 000 of the debt.
