Saraki, Dogara, Kwankwaso, Others Form ‘new APC’, Set To Join PDP by erunz(m): 3:46pm On Jul 04, 2018
Baring last minute change, the former new PDP bloc of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will announce their exit from the mainstream of the party in preparation to joining the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Arrowheads of the group include Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and a former governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Multiple sources told PREMIUM TIMES that the faction will address a press conference later on Wednesday to announce the decision.

The announcement of the formation of what is tagged the ‘new APC’ is said to be the first step in what would lead to a coalition of political parties and interests, to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari.

The faction, comprising some former governors and ranking lawmakers, has been in a tug of war with the APC government.

Some of the nPDP members, including Mr Saraki, former Adamawa governor, Murtala Nyako, and a senator, Dino Melaye, are facing corruption and other charges.

A number of the faction’s chieftains also complained about being left in the cold during the party’s congresses that took place between May and June this year.

Four governors and other ranking PDP members, including Mr Saraki, jettisoned the party in the run off to the 2015 polls, shoving up the chances of the then opposition APC.

But since forming the new government, many fault-lines started emerging, with the elements from the PDP bloc complaining of marginalisation.

A chieftain of APC who has been critical of the Buhari administration, Buba Galadima, confirmed the impending press conference to PREMIUM TIMES.

He, however, declined disclosing details though he did not refute that a new faction of the ruling party was going to be unveiled at the venue.

“I don’t want to preempt it,” Mr Galadima, who was secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Mr Buhari’s former party, said.

But a source familiar with the horse-tradings disclosed that the press conference today would herald merger of various blocs ahead of the election.

“There have been discussions and a memorandum of understanding drafted among the interest blocs that would take care of everyone’s interest going into the PDP,” the source said.

According to the source, those going into the new alliance include the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the African Democratic Congress (ADC), believed to be backed by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Calls placed to spokespersons of Mr Saraki and Dogara Wednesday afternoon where not answered. Text messages sent to both Yusuf Olaniyonu, Mr Saraki’s media aide, and Turaki Hassan, Mr Dogara’s spokesperson, were also not replied.

Mr Kwankwaso’s spokesperson, Binta Spikin, was however unreachable Wednesday afternoon. Calls placed to her known telephone number did not go through.

It is obvious those guys are not committed party member. They claimed that apc marginalised them, no asked what else do they want. They have Senate president and speaker house of representatives. They also have minister in their fold, but never satisfied. Let wait and see how the scenario unfold

The difference between the pre-2015 opposition coalitions and the type of coalitions against APC today is that at the time of the nPDP joining the APC, the party had settled on the candidacy of Buhari and they all moved into APC as an escape route from Jonathan onslaught, but that is not the case now, today Saraki, Atiku, Dogara, Tambowa, Kwankwanso all see himself as a potential presidential candidate of which ever party he moves into. I'm sure they all won't all go to same political party and any party which more than two of them move into will implode.

Reform,new or real APC,getting Buhari out before he destroys us all is the only agenda worth fighting for.
These are all opportunists looking for wherever would give them power,money and influence.They neither have Nigeria or Nigerians at heart.
If they are true patriots they would have started shouting out as soon as it was discovered that Buhari was a monumental error about 2-3years ago.

I think Buhari has nothing to do with governance other than ethnic cleansing. I don't understand how things will be falling apart everyday like this and he will be mute, dumb and blind. A house that rises against itself can never stand. if these political parasites are sensible they ought to know that they are not only representing themselves but the populace. But I think selfishness has eaten deeper into then to even realize what they are up against.

I pity the nPDP they were never welcomed

I don't support APCPDPSDPLPAPGA
I support one Nigeria and lightening speed development like what USE, Singapore and Malaysia achieved

Who among these crop of leaders can really take Nigeria there undecided

I have my PVC but where do I use it? This is the thought of many Nigerians not just getting it

Criticize Buhari you will die - Senator Ndume

No meaningful person should side this bloodthirsty government led by Moha. Buhari.

Buhari, El Rufai and co will be useful at the central Mosque.

Nigerians is a new done, do well in voting OUT incompetency, homicide and rotten president leadership.
