Abdullahi Ganduje, the former governor of Kano State, has been elected as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, it is worth noting that the party has had a history of national chairmen who did not complete their tenure in office.
Previous chairmen such as Adam Oshimhole and Abdullahi Adamu have been asked to step aside due to disagreements with influential figures within the party.
The ongoing crisis within the APC is seen by some as a positive development for Nigeria’s democracy, as it reflects the presence of vested interests and competition for control within a major political party.
This pattern of alignment and realignment is not unique to the ruling party, as it can also be observed in other political parties such as the PDP.
When a party’s leadership falls out of favor, it is considered best for the party to replace that person in order to avoid having an unpopular leadership leading up to important elections.
APC is a party with lots of vested interest, as many political bigwigs lay claim to its success. If you look at the history of the party, which was set up ahead of the 2015 general elections, you will see where its problem started in terms of leadership and competition for control.
This is, however, quite common with big political parties. We also see the same pattern in the PDP, so it is not peculiar to the ruling party.
There is constant alignment and realignment, and you will notice some people falling in favour and some falling out of favour. I think this is healthy for the system.
Also, when the leadership of the party has fallen out of favour, I think the best action for the party to take is to replace that person. Hence, the party will be left with an unpopular leadership as we say in the PDP in the buildup to the 2023 elections.
