The hornet’s nest was stirred this morning on Channels TV’s Sunrise as the National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Alhaji Lai Mohammed declared that President Mohammed Buhari is not the leader of the party.

Mohammed answering question on the breakfast show stated matter-of-factly that Senator Bola Tinubu is the leader of the party.

“President Muhammadu Buhari is not our leader, he is a product of the party. Tinubu is our leader” he said.

This is a pointed reaction to the position of the Hon Yakubu Dogara’s insistence that the straw vote organized by party chairman Odigie Oyegun was a violation of the position of the leader of the party, President Muhammadu Buhari that the party would not interfere in the emergence of the leadership of the National Assembly.

The convention in a presidential system is that the highest elected official of the ruling party is the Leader of the party.

The declaration by Mohammed is about to change that if it settles with Buhari.

In less than two weeks in power, the APC is riddled by a crisis over the leadership of the National Assembly which convenes today.

The Tinubu camp playing party supremacy got the executives it installed to organize a contentious primary at the weekend to pick the party candidates for the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Tinubu’s candidates won the “elections” which were boycotted by other contenders.
