Tension rising in Kwara APC as members of the All Progressives Congress APC renounced the party on Saturday June 19, 2021.
News gathered that the 20,000 members who left the party had an intention to form another party.
Abdulfatai Abdulrahman who represented other members, said
“The new party will be unveiled in due course as soon as possible.”
“As you are all aware, Kwara state APC has been enmeshed in one crisis or the other almost immediately after the party’s primary, stretching into the campaign period and lingering up to date.”
He rued that
“It is disheartening, shameful, and preposterous that Kwara APC, cannot manage its success even at halftime of its tenure in the saddle of governance in the state.
“The intra party crisis has been going on for long and unabated. The struggle for the soul of the party which cannot be divorced from the 2023 political ambitions has been the root cause of the lingering internal squabbles.”
