Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chief Tom Ikimi has described the All Progressives Congress, APC, as being turned to private property by Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The estranged member of the All Progressives Congress recently lost out on the National Chairman post of the party to former Edo state governor, John Odigie-Oyegun.

Ikimi described the emergence of Odigie-Oyegun as the work of a National leader of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, signlehandedly picking him.

He added that the current trends in the APC portended frightening prospects for the nation if the party wins the Presidency.

The APC chieftain added that the party’s governors colluded with Tinubu to truncate democratic process in the national convention.

He said, “The governors and the Tinubu groups decided on a zoning process that was limited only to party offices as well as the choice of individuals to fill them. They proceeded in a manner that was neither open nor transparent. Most undemocratic and bizarre procedures then prevailed.

“The governors initiated a zoning plan that allocated the national chairman to the South-South. This proposal was reluctantly accepted by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, whose well-known preferred option had been to retain Chief Bisi Akande as the chairman forever. Nevertheless, he in the circumstance, proceeded to draw up a list of his cronies for the entire national executive all by himself. Very strange as this may sound, it was the reality. Nothing was ever referred to the National Interim Executive Council for approval or even information.”
