Some stalwarts of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state have announced plans to dump the ruling party for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
The aggrieved APC members has set June 3 as date for their defection from APC to PDP.
“We have the opportunity to mark one year of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s administration in office with heavenly mass decamping from APC to PDP”, the APC members said in a statement.
The statement which was signed by the coordinator of the APC Legacy Group, Hon. Manzuma Dogo partly reads: “We have been struggling, mobilising and coordinating our people in a rational good leadership way
that is from APC to PDP respectively. After waiting for Governor AbdulRahman and Minister Mohammed Lai for a period of time, one year, we from Legacy Group in Kwara north have agreed to take this hard but right decision to make a move to come over to Peoples Democratic Party as the only party that cares for the common electorate.
“We have keenly studied the ruling party in the last one year and we noticed that the party has nothing to offer the state looking at the power tussle bedevilling the party at the state level. We have compared a year of PDP rule in kwara state and that of APC and concluded that APC’s rule is full of lies and propaganda and that is one of the reasons we have to leave such a sinking ship.”
