FERMA: The Resurgence of the Cabal's Influence, APC Support Groups Raises Concern

By Mohammed Bello Doka

In a dramatic turn of events, the prestigious Ladi Kwali Hall played host to a crucial reconciliation meeting yesterday. The Federal Government's team, led by Mr. Chris Tarka from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, convened alongside Mr. Tosin Adeyanju of the Tinubu Support Group (TSG), representing various support groups. The atmosphere was charged with frustration and discontent as participants voiced their concerns.

The meeting served as a platform for support group representatives to express their grievances regarding the party's poor reward system, allegations of godfatherism, and the overpowering influence of a select few known as the "Cabal." These powerful interests, it was claimed, wielded control over every aspect of the government, often sidelining those who had dedicated their efforts to the party's success.

One name that repeatedly resurfaced during the discussions was that of the Chief of Staff to the President. This individual Mr. Femi Gbajabiamela, was accused of being a key figure within the Cabal. Participants argued that the Cabal's dominance had resulted in the neglect of the party's grassroots supporters, who had tirelessly worked towards securing victory.

The support group representatives passionately emphasized the need for a fairer and more inclusive reward system within the party. They demanded an end to the influence of the  Gbajabiamela's Cabal, urging the government to prioritize the interests of those who had made significant sacrifices for the party's cause.

As the meeting progressed, it became evident that the grievances expressed were not isolated incidents but rather a reflection of a broader sentiment among party members. The dissatisfaction with the Cabal's control and the perceived lack of recognition for their efforts had reached a boiling point.

The news of the withdrawal of the appointment of the 24-year-old chairman of FERMA this morning seems to support the aforementioned position. This is not the first time the President has withdrawn a nomination before Senate Screening. Previously, the President withdrew Maryam Shetty's appointment as a minister and ordered Cabinet reshuffling prior to swearing in. These inconsistencies in policy are fueling accusations of godfathers engaging in shady deals, betraying the trust of the President, the people, and the country. As a result, many stakeholders are urging the President to meet the expectations of Nigerians and remove overzealous and selfish aides who could tarnish his hard-earned reputation.

The reconciliation meeting concluded with a call for urgent action to address these concerns. It was agreed that a comprehensive review of the party's reward system would be conducted, with the aim of ensuring fairness and transparency. Additionally, there was a unanimous demand for greater inclusivity in decision-making processes, allowing the voices of party members at all levels to be heard and considered.

The outcome of this meeting has set the stage for a potential shift in the dynamics within the party. As the government contemplates the necessary steps to address the grievances raised, the fate of the Cabal's influence hangs in the balance. Only time will tell whether this gathering will mark the beginning of a new era, one that prioritizes the interests of the party's grassroots supporters and relegates the Cabal to the annals of history.
