A Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has told President Muhammadu Buhari that he (Buhari) is walking towards failure ahead of 2019 presidential election.
Speaking with Vanguard, Mohammed noted that the president had not helped matters by not building his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the national and state levels.
According to the former lawmaker, instead of building the party, the president had rather positioned his family and friends around him to shape his politics.
He said, “No successful party, if you look at history, had been able to survive a major crisis from within its ranks and this is what we are seeing in the APC today.
“APC was formed in a hurry and the structures were not put well in place. You have to spend a lot of time to build the party, but Buhari has not done so, but has been contemptuous of the party and preferred to deal with his in-laws, relations and what have you.
“If they continue to subvert themselves, they will not succeed because what you see is a party having parallel structures in some of these states and people moving between the two structures, which is not good. It’s like two women married to a man, there can never be peace.
“Unfortunately, he has been advised by the cabal of friends and family that he can win irrespective of the situation and they believe that they can win with money and more money. So, except he organises his house, he is in danger.”
