Aggrieved Kwara APC Members Dump Party

The crisis rocking the rulling party in Kwara State seems to be degenerated as some aggrieved members left the party to form a new political group known as the Third Force.

THE NEWSKINGDOM gathered that the decampees led by Yakubu Gobir, a former governorship aspirant, include APC senatorial chairmen, ward chairmen, local government chairmen, women leaders, youth leaders, as well as other party stalwarts in all the 16 local government areas of the state who tore their APC membership cards and burnt the party symbol of brooms, alleged a plot of marginalisation ahead of the 2023 election.

The members who converged in IIorin, the Kwara State capital, over the weekend, accused Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and his loyalists of not allowing them to participate in the recent membership registration and revalidation exercise of the APC.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the former state APC senatorial chairman for Kwara Central, Abdulfatai Abdulrahman, said it is impossible to achieve the developmental goals they aim for Kwara under the present leadership of the party, adding that the new party would be unveiled in due course.

This development trails the protracted crisis rocking the state chapter of the party.
