LAGOS – Network of Yoruba Alliance (NEYA), a pan-Yoruba advocacy group, has called on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop the ongoing political witch-hunting among its ranks but rather devote quality time to solving the myriad of problems confronting Nigerians.
This is even as the group said that the ruling party is abusing the nation’s democratic tenets by virtue of its actions, especially against perceived opposition.
The group, in a statement issued in Lagos at the weekend, condemned the actions leading to the ongoing gale of defections in APC, warning that such development would have grave consequences on the citizenry if allowed to continue.
The group was of the opinion that a people-oriented Federal Government should work together in harmony, no matter individual interests, for the common good of the generality of Nigerians.
NEYA, therefore, warned that the APC, which presented itself as a political party coming to liberate the masses from the track of perdition might sink into more fatal derailment if conscious steps were not taken to accommodate the rising number of defections to other parties by key figures in the party hierarchy.
Sunday Akogun, spokesperson of NEYA, condemned in strong terms the ongoing attacks on the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and other notable lawmakers in both the upper and lower chambers of the National Assembly and the wanton use of the national security institutions to carry out individualistic assignments at the expense of national interests.
