Mass defection looms in Niger APC
Preparations for a gale of mass defection from the ruling All Progrossives Congress APC is believed to have reached top gear with growing member discontent as the party’s governorship primaries draws near.
The looming wind of defection that stares the Niger APC in the face with the potential of completely crippling the party in the state as it involves critical stakeholders.
The aggrieved officials set to dump the APC for the New Nigeria Peoples Party include many members of the National and State Assemblies and ¹government Council Chairmen and several other party stalwarts.
The aggrieved party stalwarts are worried by revelations of undemocratically orchestrated plans to tinker with the existing genuine delegates list to favour one of the governorship aspirants.
A source within the decamping party big wigs said the way the list of delegates was being tempered with by a clique of desperate people who are at best inconsequential in the party would not be tolerated or accommodated.
He said since remaining in the APC is not sacrosanct, they have finalized arrangements to shift to the NNPP anytime before the primaries.
