A supposed stakeholders summit by an All Progressives Congress group was thrown into chaos on Tuesday over the sharing formula for bribes received by its leaders.
The group, under the auspices of APC Rebirth Group, convened the meeting at the Shehu Yar’Adua Centre Abuja, to allegedly disburse funds received from some anti-Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra- Ordinary Convention Planning Committee elements in the ruling party and opposition.
Trouble broke out when some youths at the event expressed their displeasure over N250m received by its leadership which they claim didn’t get to them.
The young APC members, who turned up in their numbers, said that they were yet to get their cut from the kickback despite working round the clock to disrupt the Governor Buni-led committee.
According to the youths, the Director General of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), Dr. Salihu Lukman, is among the elements against the APC leadership.
Speaking at the event, Comrade Danielson Momoh, who is part of the APC Rebirth group said they had planned to maim the PGF DG for plotting with the convener against the wish of other members.
He noted that the convener, Aliyu Audu, together with Salihu, selfishly squandered the funds against the interest of other members.
According to our reporters on ground, Audu physically assaulted Momoh in a bid to cover up his mess.
It was gathered that he throw punches at Comrade Momoh and didn’t want him to him to speak.
But speaking to selected pressmen after the fracas, Momoh said “we want change but we are not ready. We can not continue to operate the same way as our leaders”.
” We are aware that Audu received N250m. But he doesn’t want to share. We are not happy. He threw punches at me. I was civil. Mr Salihu is lucky to have escaped. We wanted to show him that we are displeased”.
Some other members of the APC Rebirth group would later stage a walkout protest from the event.
They said they were blind all this while and can’t continue to jeopardise the efforts of the Buni-led committee.
