If the APC fails to address the internal wrangling within its fold, the Third Force is the next political ship, chairman of the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts, Senator Shehu Sani (APC, Kaduna) has said. Responding to questions from our correspondent on the new alliance that is said to be in the works, Sani described it as a welcome development.
“Third Force is a welcome development if that will help in ensuring that people in power are held to account,” he said.
The senator, who said he was unaware of the fact that 25 of his colleagues had thrown their weight behind the said build-up, added, “What I can assure you is that all kinds of meetings are going on, and there is a seeming anger and discontent among the legislators.
“If the ruling party addresses its internal crisis it will avert an implosion. If it doesn’t, then the Third Force will be the next political ship,” he said. On the special press statement of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, he said:
“Former President Obasanjo is entitled to his opinion and it’s wrong and immoral for some people to insult him, just because he expressed a contrary opinion.”
