That APC promotes an apartheid policy of exclusionism can no longer be denied. Imagine what they are doing to those they deceived into becoming their members across the country. Most of them have been left in the cold, out of the spoils of their hard work and the Party’s ‘victory’ at the polls.
In Rivers State, the fortune of APC members is even more pathetic. Only fellow villagers of the Party’s 2015 Gubernatorial candidate’s community have been appointed into the 3 and only Federal appointments allocated to the State: NDDC, NIMASA, VC Federal University, Otuoke and now Ambassador. Members of the Party from other parts of the State, like the Ogonis and everyone else, are left helpless like orphans.
This is not how to be Progressives. Nigeria has never had it this bad and, It is, indeed, time for those who were misled, and have now been betrayed, to find their way back home. Believing that things will change to another definition of change is to accept the presumption of the schemers in APC’s hierarchy that there are no alternatives for the betrayed and helpless. There are always alternatives. Retracing the missteps is a viable one. People must take their destiny in their hands.
