SIXTEEN All Progressives Congress (APC) Local Government chairmen in Kwara state have officially announced their defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“It is our collective resolve to join the Peoples Democratic Party PDP as the worthy alternative platform to further our political careers and work for the advancement of the generality of our people. Since we are welcomed by the party, we have no doubt it wouldn’t be like the conglomeration of strange bedfellows that APC had been in the last four years.
“We have in the recent time experienced untoward developments within the political party we all claim to belong and loyal to. Precisely, it would be noted that All Progressives Congress APC is being controlled by a cabal who are hellbent in destroying its ever-rising acceptability before the populace.
“It is, to many of us, disgusting to note that all what the cabal controlling the party is doing is to cater for the personal interest and marshal the ego of a few interest groups within the party.
“Noticeably, since the completion of Congresses and convention of APC, there has been a flagrant disregard for decorum, disobedience and inconsistency in following party guidelines as well as subjugation of rules with impunity. These among others led to the emergence of a faction named rAPC within the party.
