2019: APC Lawmakers Threaten To Jump Ship
The All Progressive Congress seems to be a party fighting war on all fronts.
The dust raised by the primaries conducted by the party nationwide has refused to settle. The primaries have left most party members disgruntled with some threatening to leave.
Among the disgruntled are the members of the House of Representatives who have resolved to dump the party, following their inability to secure return tickets for 2019.
Investigations showed that the resignation would be done in batches, beginning from Wednesday on the floor of the House in Abuja.
One member, who has been prominent in the negotiations with the party for a return ticket, Musa Soba, said that the members would leave.
He will be among the first batch to dump the ruling party.
Soba, who is from Kaduna State, said, “We have decided to resign our membership of the APC.
“However, this will come in batches.
“My resignation will come up through a letter to be read on the floor of the House tomorrow (today).”
Over 70 lawmakers had petitioned the appeal panel of the APC after they lost their tickets at its last primary election for the February general elections.
While some of the members had complained that the process was “manipulated” to favour some preferred contestants, others alleged that the party approved direct or indirect primaries in one instance, only to make a U-turn the next moment.
