The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been split into two as a group within party, the NPDP, has created a splinter faction.
The faction which is named “Reformed APC” accused the Muhammadu Buhari administration of incompetence and failure.
The splinter group is believed to have the backing of key leaders of the party including the Senate President Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; and a former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
While briefing journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, Buba Galadima, one of the leaders of the group said,
“We are sad to report that after more than three years of governance, our hopes have been betrayed, our expectations completely dashed,
“The APC has run a rudderless, inept and incompetent government that has failed to deliver good governance to the Nigerian people. It has rather imposed dictatorship, impunity, abuse of power, complete abdication of constitutional and statutory responsibilities, infidelity to the rule of law and constitutionalism.”
The faction is also not satisfied with the recent national convention of the APC.
It said it has its leaders in all the local governments of the federation.
The faction said it had appointed its own leaders across the states.
“The R-APC as constituted have officers in all the wards, 774 Local Governments, and all the 36 States of the Federation including the FCT.
“The R-APC also have National Executive Committee, the National Working Committee and other organs of the Party are properly constituted and functional,” the faction said.
