The All Progressives Congress (APC) party of Nigeria, is currently in a serious dilemma following a breakaway of a faction within the ruling party.
News about the break-away was announced during a press conference, where according to reports, the new name ‘Reformed APC’ was coined.
According to members of the new group the breakaway was a direct result of the party’s leadership annihilation of members of the group; which include formidable members from nPDP, and the defunct parties-CPC, ANPP, and ACN.
Buba Galadinma, a former secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Buhari’s former party, said: “The Reformed All Progressive Congress, RAPC, national executive committee is constituted.

”We are assembled to address you on the state of our party, APC, the state of the nation and above all the constitutional democracy of Nigeria. I am standing here before you as the chairman of RAPC. You will recall that in 2015 general election some political parties came together to form a brand new political party called APC.”
”This merger was based on the strong belief that Nigeria had come of age that it was severely under-performing and incapable to meet the potentials of good governance.”
“The Nigerian people gave power to APC based on its promises and potentials. We are sad to inform that after more than three years of governance, our expectations (have been) completely dashed.
The APC has run a ruthless and incompetent government that has failed to deliver good governance to the people. It has rather imposed dictatorship, impunity, abuse of power, complete application of constitutional and statutory responsibilities, impunity in the rule of law and constitutionality. It has failed to ensure the security and welfare of Nigerian and elevated nepotism to secondary height.”
Also present at the meeting was an ex-nPDP leader, Kawu Baraje.
