APC Crisis Can Only Be Resolved By Justice And Equity – Dogara


The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has declared that the crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) can only be resolved by enthroning justice and equity rather than silencing the voices of dissent and opposition within the party.

According to a statement sent by his spokesperson, Turaki Hassan, Dogara spoke on Thursday at a meeting between APC members of the House and members of the newly elected leadership of the party, led by the Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

“APC lawmakers only expect justice, which is indivisible and universal,” Dogara said at the meeting which took place at the National Assembly.

“In every family whether it is a nuclear, extended or an organisation there is bound to be problem and that is because we humans that are running those institutions are not perfect ourselves. So we don’t expect perfection from any quarters.

“Our only expectation is the issue of justice and justice is indivisible. What is justice to the executive should be justice to the legislature and it should be justice to the judiciary,” Mr Dogara was quoted to have said.

“What is justice to the President and the Vice President should be justice to the Governor and it has to be justice for the members of the National Assembly, because you can’t divide justice. Once you begin to divide justice you don’t have justice.

“And once we are able to get these things in their proper perspectives to some extent, we will be able to silence the voices of dissent within the party.

“But that we have problems is perfectly okay, but we mustn’t allow our problems to define us. Rather, we should define our problems as a party.

“I know that you come well prepared; we can only wish you well and pray for God’s additional wisdom because human wisdom won’t be enough as you navigate very treacherous terrain.”
