Barrister Mike Utsaha, a chieftain of the Benue state chapter of the All Progressive Congress who is also a close associate of the leader of the party, Senator George Akume, has said that the party will become a ghost party with no credible member in 2023.

Utsaha who made the outburst in his comments on Facebook which were monitored by Nigerian Concord reporters added that the party is fast becoming a ghost party in the hands of the leaders piloting its affairs with their inexperience.

He added that current happenings in the Benue APC are the rhetoric and sense of reasoning that had informed some of his positions regarding the party.

“But more often than not feeble minded folks, who survive on handouts from politicians, would rather we refrain from saying anything. Yet, the danger signals are all over the place. Mark my words, APC will become a ghost party in 2023” he said.

Utsaha who had been linked with a secret romance with the immediate past chairman of the BIRS, Ms. Mimi Orubibi, continued that the inexperienced way with which the Benue APC is being piloted is why he had joined other members to always call attention to the need for reform and enduring peace in the party.

He also said: “I have nothing against APC or any of her leaders, if anything, I am grateful to the party for some of the opportunities I got from it. But, truth be told, our party is very badly run, and by persons who have no idea how to run a political party.

“And we see nothing wrong with this. Under such circumstances, it is easy to make a forecast, and that’s what I do more often than not.

“I can do with some help here and there, but to the glory of God I do not have to depend on any politician for my survival and, under such circumstances, it will a complete dereliction of duty for me not to be critical of my party when there is need to do so”
