JUST IN: Two Senators Dump APC In Kaduna
No matter how much they try to claim that all is well, it is obvious that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is bleeding.
When you lose two sitting senators in one day, that is some battering for a Nigerian political party.
Senators Shehu Sani (APC Kaduna Centra) and Suleiman Hunkuyi (APC Kaduna North) and other prominent party members have dumped the APC in Kaduna state.
We saw that coming, didn’t we?
The departed are all members of Akida and Restoration groups of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state.
The Chairman of the Akida group, Matamaiki Tom-Maiyashi on Friday announced the decision of the two groups at a press conference in Kaduna.
He said they left because the APC was not ready to accommodate alternative opinions or allow democracy to take its course in the conduct of party affairs.
Other prominent members of the two groups include Tijjani Ramalan, owner of Liberty Radio and Television stations, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed among others.
Tom-Maiyashi said: “This joint Press Conference is the culmination of extensive reviews and consultations over the state of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State as well as in the nation.
“As you will appreciate, groups such as ours that had been part of the efforts to keep our Party along the lines of survival, accountability and integrity will be diligent in ensuring that whatever steps we take are consistent with our high sense of responsibility.
“We are satisfied that the positions we have arrived at are in the best interests of our members and the ongoing-efforts to create options and strategies that will rid our nation of undeserved and avoidable challenges.
“Members of our two groups have decided to leave the APC because it is incapable of accommodating and responding to well-meaning dissent, criticism and demands for inclusiveness and internal democracy,” Tom-Maiyashi said.
He criticised the party, saying it had failed the millions of people who labored for its emergence with hope for genuine change.
“We are hereby advising all our teeming members to formalize their withdrawal from the APC.
