Damage control. Nothing more.

A floodgate has been opened.

Believe this news from Tinubu’s Nation newspaper at your own risk and peril.
Weak and stained PDP?
How would you describe APC?

The plot to cause a split in the All Progressives Congress(APC) has suffered a major setback, with some leaders of the party refusing to join the Reformed All Progressives Congress(R-APC).

Some bigwigs, who have opted to remain in APC, include former Governor Abdullahi Adamu; former Governor Aliyu Wammako; former Governor Danjuma Goje; former Governor Adamu Aliero; former Governor Kabiru Gaya; Governor Abdullahi Ganduje; Governor Yahaya Bello and Governor Jibrilla Bindow. There are several others.

Joining some of the APC chieftains, including those who were in new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), are over 184 Representatives and no fewer than 52 senators in the Parliamentary Support Group (PSG).

The APC leaders prefer to remain in the party to chart their own political path instead of teaming up with Senate President Bukola Saraki, House Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Governor Aminu Tambuwal, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, some senators and members of the House to nurture the R-APC.

It was also learnt that the PSG leaders in the National Assembly met Wednesday evening to rally against the R-APC’s anti-President Muhammadu Buhari plot.

“Many APC members do not buy the idea of forming R-APC to “settle scores and promote self-aggrandisement,” a source said yesterday.

The source, who spoke in confidence, said the political outlook and permutations do not favour R-APC
The source said: “Unlike the case in 2014, there is a crack in the nPDP (now transformed into R-APC) and it does not have the number to cause any upset in the ruling APC. The factionalisation plot is dead on arrival because of sheer ambition.

“There was wholesale merger/ defection in 2014 by nPDP to APC but some of these leaders prefer to remain in APC. Ex-Governors Wammako, Goje, Aliero and Abdullahi Adamu, among others have distanced themselves from R-APC which is being promoted only by three leaders.
“Some APC leaders are also aware of the ultimate goal of R-APC leaders to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if the terms of their current negotiation are acceptable. They cannot understand why they will be in R-APC (a transit camp) today and hop to PDP the next day.

“A few R-APC leaders are confused. They seek refuge in PDP and African Democratic Congress (ADC) at the same time. For instance, while Kwankwaso has been having talks with PDP, there are indications that he is more at home with ADC, already adopted by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s group just for the sake of a presidential ticket.”

In Sokoto State, Wammako has made it clear that he will not join forces with Governor Tambuwal in R-APC to destabilise APC
“All the three senators and six out of 11 members of the House of Representatives have shunned the bait from Governor Tambuwal to join R-APC. They have pitched tent with their leader, ex-Governor Aliyu Wammako,” the source said.

In Kano, two out of the three senators and 14 of the 24 House of Representatives members “have left Kwankwaso to his fate”. They are in alliance with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.”

A former governor said yesterday: “I do not have an uncertain political future; I remain in APC and not any other group.”

APC is said not to be threatened by the R-APC. This, said the sources, is because “as some of these leaders are leaving, the APC is also gaining more members, including Sen. Hope Uzodinma and Sen. John Enoh. “Sen. Sunday Ogbuoji from Ebonyi have also defected from PDP to our party,” he said, adding:

“In fact, there is a prospect of an alliance pact between APC and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) as part of looking into the future.”

The source confirmed that some party leaders, senators and Representatives may leave APC due to political aspirations and other interests.

Some of those who may go include, Dr. Saraki; Speaker Yakubu Dogara; ex-Governor Murtala Nyako; Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso; Sen. Monsurat Sunmonu; Sen. Isa Misau; Sen. Dino Melaye; Sen. Soji Akanbi; Sen. Muhammed Shitu; Sen. Shehu Sani: Sen. Suleiman Hunkuyi; Sen. Mohammed Sha’aba Lafiagi; Sen. Rafiu Ibrahim; Sen. Kabiru Marafa; and Sen. Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi.
Some of these leaders from Bauchi, Zamfara, Kaduna, Oyo and Jigawa have “irreconcilable differences” with their governors. A few others are no longer wanted by their constituents. Some are ambitious; others have been committed to nPDP instead of the APC right from 2015 and others have local peculiarities, The Nation learnt.

“Ordinarily, Nyako does not have business with R-APC but because of local politics in Adamawa State, he has chosen to leave APC. For example, Sen. Soji Akanbi from Oyo State wants to be a governor and he may adopt another party to realise his ambition.”

“Speaker Dogara has the same local challenge and also his political fate is tied to his mentor, Governor Tambuwal. Tambuwal is said to have made up his mind to leave APC because of his presidential ambition.
“There are issues in Kaduna, Jigawa and Kogi states which have forced R-APC leaders to hibernate elsewhere,” the source said.
Members of the PSG on Wednesday met in Abuja on how to stop R-APC members’ plot against President Buhari in the National Assembly.

The breakdown of the senators in the Upper Chamber is as follows: APC 65; PDP 39; APGA two; dead senators (two) and senator in prison (one).

A ranking senator said: “The PSG can mobilize at least 52 senators and over 184 members of the House of Representatives to curtail the political rampage of the R-APC leaders.

“We have done our homework to put the President in good stead and be able to concentrate on his job. We will not take things for granted.
“This was why we met on Wednesday to take stock and put counter-measures in place against R-APC members.”
In an interview yesterday, a respected member of the APC in the Northeast said R-APC leader Buba Galadima fell out with Buhari when the President decided to expand his political base out of the old CPC conclave in 2015.

Now Kwankwaso’s acolyte, Galadima was among those whose sectional antics ensured Buhari lost three times before 2015. People like him lost relevance the moment Buhari opted to reach out outside the old Northwest base.

*In Benin yesterday, the report of the involvement of Kassim Afegbua, erstwhile media aide to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, was dismissed as “comic relief”.
An APC leader from Edo North said: “I am not surprised at all that Afegbua would seek relevance by joining them (R-APC).
“He was rehabilitated by Oshiomhole with an appointment in Edo State between 2012 and 2016.

“In the APC primary in 2016, whereas his boss was backing Godwin Obaseki, he betrayed him by working for another aspirant who lost woefully.

“Rather than sack him, Oshiomhole was magnanimous enough to retain him as Information Commissioner. Well, you could explain his working for a different candidate as his democratic right. But guess what, when Obaseki became a candidate in 2016, he decided to work for opposition PDP.

“Just imagine the lack of honour and principle. How do you place such a person? So, for us in Edo, we are just laughing. Edo APC is 100 per cent for and behind Oshiomhole. “

I find it difficult to believe that certain people think APC will allow its house to crack to the extent of colossal damage like the PDP suffered in 2014. The R- APC is dead on arrival already as only one State Governor is in their ranks, while in 2014, PDP allowed 7 governors to form the N-PDP...

Organism000:
24 State Chapters of APC are factionalized.

So, what on Earth are you talking about ? APC is dead and buried, and no amount of propaganda will save this one, not even trying to do damage control on news paper can help.

Oshomole knows the implication, that is why he is apologizing, but you guys on nairaland are too emotional to see things the way they are. I understand how painful it is to see the party you support fagmented, so it is natural to feel the sense of disbelief which is why you are working on overdrive to hold on to the last straw that could help heal the disbelief.

Buhari had a chance to write his name on Gold, but he squandered it on the alter of nepotism from day 1. He termed others 5% and went as far as ignore the killings all over the country. Even SARS mayhem, he has said nothing about it.

There is a point in life where you must abandon a sinking ship or drown with it. And I know most of you will drown with this ship, instead of being independent minded humans and standing with the country instead of standing with politicians and their parties.

I think some of you are mentally sick without even knowing it. You are ready to obfuscate the truth just to maintain your elusive ego.

Shame.

False -hood, so you think the bandwagon effect will still sweep the north then you are dreaming. The electorates are now wiser, I doubt if you reside in the north. All the media does is to dish out what the like to sale their paper. Most of the first term governors know that their chance of being re-elected is 50-50 so that is why the are trying to play their cards well. Governors of Plateau, Benue, Kogi, Adamawa,Kaduna, Bauchi,Niger are already losers.

They all won using the popularity of Buhari.

Whether you hate or like him Buhari is loved and respected by the downtrodden and common men in the North& Nigeria at large and these are the people that come out and vote during elections.

You and i the sophisticated prefer to stay inside air condition house , balance well well for election day dey chop bread and butter with fried egg instead to be in the queue and vote.

Since they know they cant win elections against Buhari they now resort to a deliberate move to promote killings all around the country just to incite the masses against buhari.

BUt DEM GO FAIL, BUHARI IS LOVED BY THE PEOPLE AND INNOCENT . the killings are perpetrated by politicians who cannot contest squarely with buhari and President Buhari should come all out to finish this wicked politicians , if anyone responsible should be brought to book.

THEY GOT ASHAMED OF GOING BACK TO THE PDP WHERE THEY RIGHTLY BELONG THEN THEY NAMED THEMSELVES RATS OF APC (rAPC)
TINUBU didn't form nAD, he left AD for those who sold themselves to OBJ because of AiDs they received. He galvanized his people and formed a credible party instead subjecting himself to ridicule and an element of pity!!!
PMB didn't form rANPP, he left the party for those who Amputated it for PDP. He proofed his strength, formed his own party instead of becoming a Political nuisance and irrelevant rodent!!!
Those are MEN who know their onions, tomatoes, pepper and vegetable oil when it comes to political stew!
Kwankwaso is strong my foot, Saraki is formidable my tueh!!! If they left APC today, we will not take them to court or declare their seat vacant, after all, Omo Agege also joined APC without problems. These folks have no excuse not to leave the APC since last year, apart from the fact that they know within themselves that they they can't survive the raging defeat and cloud of disgrace that will put their crafty political career into a permanent coma!!!

All the Rat-APC has little or no political value without PMB.
They all won their elections on the Hill of PMB.
Who on earth would have voted for person like Dino if not for PMB mantra?
Kwankwaso is not even a wise politician(no dignity)
Leaving a party you helped built for your mere political boy
Well that's the game.
They keep changing names here and there to have an eye contact with PMB, but he seems looking elsewhere.
PMB can't be cow. When he wins 2019, all the Rat-APC members will bite their fingers in a bitter way.
