Doyin Okupe Mocks APC Over Crisis

The Senior Special Assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, on Sunday, mocked the All Progressives Congress over the internal crisis plaguing the ruling party.

Okupe, who was one of the most vocal supporters of Jonathan before the election, had predicted that the APC would not last more than a year because “its foundation is wrong, its combination is faulty and its ideologies are not clearly defined.’’

Less than a month after President Muhammadu Buhari took the oath of office, the APC has been embroiled in a crisis caused by the election of principal officers in the National Assembly.

Consequently, Buhari has not been able to appoint ministers or make significant progress due to the feud between the loyalists of Senate President Bukola Saraki, and the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Okupe, while reacting to the APC crisis on his official Facebook page, maintained that his prediction, like the word of God, would come to pass and nothing would stop it.

While quoting the Bible, the former presidential spokesman, who once described Jonathan as being like Jesus Christ, said his prediction could only be delayed but never foiled.

He wrote, “APC Crisis: Habakkuk 2, verse 3: ‘For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie, though it tarries, wait for it, because it will surely come to pass.’”

In a separate interview with our correspondent, a former National Deputy Chairman of the PDP, Chief Bode George, told our correspondent that the crisis within the APC would lead to the party’s disintegration.

George said the PDP was confident of regaining power in 2019.

He said, “As I told you before, the APC is a congregation of strange bedfellows and they cannot last because they have no foundation, no taproot.”
