According to Punch, member of the APC from the South-West, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “Since the beginning of this administration, our party has never held a meeting with the National Assembly caucus. We have always been on our own, doing our own thing. How then could we have known where the party stands on Magu? We did not know what the party wanted on Magu when we had to take the decision. Remember, when it comes to party structure, we are a critical block of the party. I feel ashamed for what happened.”
