Nine APC governors set to leave party

21 November 2016, 14:38

Abuja - There are indications that some state governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are planning to dump the party.

Some of the governors according to New Telegraph are  already reaching out to their colleagues in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for alliance in forming a new political platform.

The nine governors are said to be angry with the perceived policy of exclusion unleashed on their supporters from the top hierarchy of the party.

The negative policy has manifested mostly in the alleged lopsided appointments made by President Buhari since he assumed office 16 months ago.

Most of these governors are fed up with this style of leader ship where everything is done by the so-called cabal in Aso Rock without consultation with other stakeholders.

The governors are also uncomfortable with the non-fulfillment of many populist campaign promises upon which the party rode to power.

The party is expected to suffer more in South-West and North Central.

About three APC governors  from the South-west have already concluded plans to dump the party because of the perceived humiliation of the national leader of the party and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, by the party and the presidency according to Naij.

However, National Secretary of the APC,  Mai Mala Buni has dismissed the reports of the impending defection of some governors as untrue.
