A faction of the All Progressive Congress known as APC Akida and members of APC Restoration group in Kaduna state have dumped the ruling party. According to the two groups, they decided to dump APC because the party had failed to meet the expectations of millions of Nigerians who voted for the party.
The two groups disclosed this today at a joint news briefing in Kaduna under the leadership of Mataimaki Maiyashi for Akida group and Jaafaru Ibrahim for Restoration.
The groups did not mention the new party they will be joining but said serious consultation was ongoing with political parties that share their values. Shehu Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central is a member of the Akida faction and has always threatened to dump the party. But he was not at the press conference.
