APC IN TROUBLE
Since the day the People’s Democratic Party [PDP] chose the former Bauchi state governor, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu as its chairman, things have never been the same for the main opposition party in the country again. The temporal majority that the All Progressives Congress [APC] were enjoying in the House of Representatives was taken away from them [APC] by the PDP. And that was just the beginning of APC’S Nightmares.
Several elected officials of the APC began to defect to the ruling party mostly in states that are controlled by APC governors. The failure of the party’s leadership to checkmate this bitter trend has cost the party more than it could have possibly bargained for.
They unbelievably lost Ekiti state to PDP, they failed to save Murtala Nyako of Adamawa state from being impeached by the state house of Assembly and the legislator’s harmer fell on him eventually. Another report from Ogun state has it that 10 members of the state house of Assembly have defected from APC to PDP, in Nasarawa state, the state legislators are also making a move to impeach Governor Tanko Al makura while the Edo state House of Assembly drama is still going on since some members of APC defected to the PDP. That’s not all oooo….from Borno state comes this news that Ali Modu Sheriff has also defected from APC to PDP.
Why all APC supporters are worried about these defections is that, all are happening in states that are controlled by APC. But as the 2015 general elections approaches, these defections will certainly alter the political permutations heading to the polls next year. And if APC wants to give Nigeria that strong opposition party that we have been craving for, they will need to up their game.
Can APC defeat the PDP come 2015?
