Early, even before the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2015, the APC had already fallen on bad times.
*First was the composition of the Transition Committee which created bad blood in some quarters
*This was followed by the quest to impose the leadership of the National Assembly; it failed as both Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, were not the choices of those who attempted to carry out the imposition
*The prolonged non-submission of nominees for ministerial posts created its own crisis
*The crisis between the National Assembly and the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation
*The tiff between the Department of State Services, DSS, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC
*The no love lost relationship between the Attorney General of the Federation and the EFCC Chairman
*The open face off between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the party and John Oyegun, National Chairman
