Members of the All Progressives Congress, under the aegis of Concerned APC Stakeholders, on Friday said the party was at risk of extinction should it continue its aversion to democratic contests in the selection of candidates.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘It’s time APC renews itself, says Concerned APC Stakeholders,’ signed by one of the conveners of the group, Abubakar Usman, in Abuja.

He said the group had cautioned the party leadership against foisting unpopular candidates as leaders under the guise of consensus.

Usman said, “When we addressed a press conference on October 6, 2021, we warned that the experiences of the wards and local government congresses held across the country could just be trouble in the days ahead for the APC if the same applied to the rest of the processes that would end at the national convention.

“From Kano to Kwara, from Osun to Ogun, from Lagos to Sokoto, and a couple of other states, Nigerians were treated to embarrassing spectacles of multiple congresses by members of the party who simply wanted to exercise their rights.”
