A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, has bemoaned the type of reward system that’s entrenched in the ruling party.
Igbokwe, a staunch loyalist of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, asserted that the APC reward system is nothing to write home about as the party tends to reward persons of questionable characters.
Igbokwe’s statement is coming amid the release of APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) list for the 2023 general elections.
The council list, which comprises about 400 members, was released on Friday by the PCC Secretary, James Faleke, a federal lawmaker.
The likes of Femi Fani Kayode, who defected to the APC last year and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, Chimaroke Nnamani, who was a member of the PDP made the list.
Reacting, Igbokwe in a post on his Facebook page said the type of people that made it to the list unsettles him.
Igbokwe opined, ”All things considered APC Nigeria poor reward system in Nigeria worries me to the marrows.
”The party rewards idle people, hangers-on, layabouts, interlopers, cowards, onlookers etc.”
Meanwhile, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, said Nnamani was listed as a member of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council because Tinubu enjoys support beyond the APC and it is not unusual for the “cross-party alignment”
