Monday Ubani

Monday Ubani, Second Vice-President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on Thursday said majority of members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are not in support of President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war.

He said many of the party members do not share the President’s belief in waging a total war against corruption.

Speaking in an interview with INDEPENDENT in his office, Ubani who also said he may not give the president an automatic ticket until he has seen the fulfillment of key promises he made during the 2015 campaign, said the performance of APC as a ruling party has been a disaster.

According to him “The performance of APC as a ruling party has been a disaster. The APC as a political party has not shown high level of cohesiveness and unity in addressing some of the promises they made while coming into government.

“All we have had is a party where members are contending against one another. Sometimes, they behave as if they are not even from the same political party. Judging by what you see in the National Assembly and even in the Executive, it shows that they are working at cross-purposes.

“There is no sign of unity of purpose. So, it is very embarrassing when you see these things happening by a political party that one would have thought will be very cohesive in supporting the president to fulfill his promises.

“I have not seen the necessary support from the party especially when it comes to the fight against corruption. This President has shown that it has commitment to fight corruption but majority of his party members are really against the fight,” he said.
