Frank, who was reacting in a statement he released on Thursday in Abuja, on President Muhammadu Buhari's rejection of tenure elongation for the current National Working Committee (NWC) and other executives at all levels, believes that Chief Oyegun's tenure as the party's National Chairman had done more damages than good to the ruling party.

Recall that the APC National Publicity Secretary Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi had told newmen shortly after NEC meeting that the previous decision taken by NEC on tenure elongation still stands despite Buhari's declaration.

But in a counter claim, the PDP said the APC and its Federal Government can not continue to play the saints when state governors, who stole hundreds of billions of naira meant for the development of their states to fund President Buhari's election in 2015, are still enjoying cover as members of the Buhari kitchen cabinet despite outrage from Nigerians. "Then, that also presented its own complications so the NEC made a decision to set up a small team that will advise the party on the way forward", he said.

He expressed the hope that the party's NEC would resolve outstanding issues and reposition the party to face the challenges ahead.

The NEC had resolved to extend the tenure of the NWC by a year, with effect from June.

Sunny Onuesoke, has said the All Progressives Congress will collapse before the 2019 general elections following recent happenings in the party.

"I remember several times the party under Chief Oyegun could not hold meeting, not to talk of taking any decision because the President, who they claimed to be leader of the party then was not available".

"In this circumstance, what is expected of us is to conduct fresh elections once the tenure of the current executives approaches its end".

"If there is any party that should refund looted funds, it is the APC, which directly used stolen money to scheme in the election of President Buhari in 2015, while known culpable persons now sit comfortably around the Presidential table, still superintending over the looting of our common patrimony".

"A caretaker committee can not remedy this situation and can not validly act in place of elected officers".

A former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta State, Mr.

He said, "The president was gracious enough to say well, this is my thinking". I think this should be allowed to go forward and all efforts should be geared towards making the timetable a great success. "As far as the party is concerned he is an ordinary member like others".
