In an interview with Journalist, Tanko Yakassai said Adams Oshiomole, the National Chairman of APC, has no power to make members of the party win any electoral positions.
He said the President is the only one who has the power to decide the rising of members of APC in the country and not Oshiomhole.
“Oshiomhole as the APC National Chairman, cannot make you even a member of the State House of Assembly.
“He has only the name of National Chairman. He has no powers, he s empty, the party men know that their party leaders are empty.
“But, if Buhari says you should be this or that, automatically, you will be so, and this also applies to states where the state governors also call the shots,” Yakassai said.
Yakassai also called for the return of powers of political parties to members of the party.
In a statement, he said that there is a lack of respect accorded to leaders of various political parties in the country.
“Powers of political parties must be returned to the members of the party.
“You cannot rise to the position of even a messenger in a political party at the state or national level without the blessings or nod of your governor or the president,” this was his word.
