Tinubu under pressure to form new political party

21 October 2015, 16:11

Lagos - National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu is under intense pressure to float a new political party, reports National Daily.

Some members of the party, who are not happy with the appointments made so far by President Muhammadu Buhari have approached Tinubu on the need to form a new party since the APC has been hijacked by people who are neither members nor sympathisers of the APC .

The aggrieved members, who are loyalists of Tinubu are said to have been frustrated over the perceived sidelining of Tinubu, from the major scheme of activities in the party since the inauguration of the current administration on May 29, 2015.

They are angry that the ministerial list contain persons not recommended by Tinubu, while the president opted for those the national leader was purportedly not supporting initially.

Some aides to Tinubu, have, however, denied any plan by their principal to float a new political party.

They noted that Tinubu can not throw away his efforts to build the APC from formation to victory in the elections and abandon it for a new party.
