Darkness at APC National Secretariat over N1.7m power debt
– National secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja has been thrown into darkness following the party’s failure to offset the N1.7 million debt owed Abuja Electricity Distribution Company – An electricity receipt pasted on the gate of the APC secretariat which was seen by Vanguard showed that the party had only recently paid N500, 000 of the debt Leaders of the APC The national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja has been thrown into darkness following the party’s failure to offset the N1.7 million debt owed Abuja Electricity Distribution Company. According to Vanguard newspaper, the electricity company decided to wield the big stick, cutting off electricity supply to the secretariat and worsening its already decrepit state. The report said the party has been starved of cash due to the current economic crisis but may have generated over N100 million this year from the sale of Nomination and Expression of Interest forms for Edo and Ondo States governorship primaries. An electricity receipt pasted on the gate of the APC secretariat which was seen by Vanguard showed that the party had only recently paid N500, 000 of the debt. Party officials said President Buhari has consistently refused to fund the party, just as state governors had refused to save the party from the embarrassing situation. Meanwhile, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has lashed out at former President Goodluck Jonathan over the handling of insurgency during his tenure. Mr Osinbajo said Mr Jonathan was never committed to ending the Boko Haram insurgency, thus the spread of the terrorist and kidnapping of several persons in the North-East.
