Abuja - A former governor of Sokoto State, Attahiru Dalhatu Bafarawa, on Wednesday said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is the ‘mother of corruption’.
Speaking with Daily Trust in Sokoto, Bafarawa said APC is the “architect of the enduring rift between it and some of its top-notch members” which, according to him, was causing the country immense loss of progress.
It would be recalled that in 2014, about seven PDP governors revolted against their party and formed a faction, the nPDP, thereafter, five of them defected to the APC ahead of the general elections.
Those that moved include Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano), Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko (Sokoto), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa) and Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara).
Bafarawa accused them of allegedly buying their way into the APC and thereafter turned all the rules in their favour.
He said when the five governors came into the APC, they were warmly received because they had the money to contribute N100 million each.
