The chairman, Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Kaduna State chapter, Musa Soba has claimed that the reason ACN did not emerge winner in the last presidential election was that leaders of the party sold its candidate, Mal. Nuhu Ribadu to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for One hundred million dollars (N16 Billion)
Musa in a recent release alleged that he warned leaders of the party to put their house in order rather than being insincere and deceitful.
He therefore asked the head-honchos of the leading opposition party to explain why its candidate was sold out to the PDP in the South-West region in 2011 election.
He said, “A rogue leadership is one that collected one hundred million dollars (N16 Billion) from the PDP, delivered the south-west to the PDP in the 2011 presidential election and shamelessly turned around to accuse the PDP of corruption and stealing of public funds.” Speaking further, the chairman said that ACN is like a one-man business, which runs without Board of Trustees, visionary leaders and a functional constitution.
On the recent statement attributed to the party’s national publicity secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on the Kaduna State ACN leadership crisis, the statement said the Kaduna State ACN under Barrister Soba ‘would never yield to the abuse of party constitution and irresponsible statements by Lai Mohammed who, of recent, has become a nuisance and an errand boy for political and emotional blackmail.’
He added: “We challenge Lai Mohammed and the national secretary of the party, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, to tell the whole world why state chapters like Enugu, Ebonyi, Abia, Cross Rivers, Bayelsa, AkwaIbom, Nassarawa, Plateau, Bauchi, Gombe, Yobe, Borno, Adamawa, Taraba and Kaduna states are all facing national leadership induced crises,” the statement said.
Reacting to the threats by some top officers of the party to drag the Kaduna State government and the Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (SIECOM) to court, the statement further affirmed that “it is noting but emotional blackmail by the party’s secretary”
