Former Vice-President and All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Atiku Abubakar, has called on the party to live by the rules of internal democracy.

Atiku said this in response to the ongoing crisis in the APC, following the decision of the party’s Chairman on the outcome of the Ondo governorship primaries.

The APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu had earlier called for the resignation of Oyegun over the decision which he took.

Atiku said “The APC on the promotion of rule of law and due process in the conduct of its affairs noting that they are germane to the unity and stability of the party.”

Adding that “it is imperative for the national leadership of the party to live by the rules of internal democracy and respect for democratic consensus”, warning that “you cannot break your own rules without creating problems.”

“Since the APC found veritable reasons to review the outcome of the gubernatorial primary election it conducted in Ondo State, and was able to establish valid grounds to cancel that election and call for a fresh one, the decision to deviate from its own resolution is a negation of due process and an unfashionable hollow in democratic best practices.

“It was wrong for the APC to have set aside a resolution it had reached aimed at resolving the crisis in our party in Ondo State. It is a recipe for acrimony and division,” Atiku said.

Oyegun has however said that he will not disrespect the APC Leader, Bola Tinubu.
