Fresh facts emerged on Thursday that the matter is no longer if, it is a matter of when the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and his followers will dump the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for another political party.
According to an impeccable source that confided in this medium in Ilorin, some leaders in Saraki’s camp chastised some youths at a meeting held at a location in Ilorin West on Thursday for going too far in the APC programmes aimed at the returning the party back to power in 2019.
The source expressed that one of the leaders was miffed that why would any Saraki follower be doing anything to sustain APC in Kwara State when the leader was yet to provide a direction.
Another source at the Mandate Office, the campaign office of Dr. Saraki confirmed that arrangements are concluded for the early move of the Saraki political family out of the APC. He was however, upbeat that the decision would be in the best interest of the senate president and his political family.
It would be recalled that majority of the newly commissioned ward constituency offices of the senate president in the 52 wards of Kwara Central senatorial district is yet to either has APC logo or hoist the party’s flags in its frontage but an observable green colour was noticed in some wards which is close to the colour of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
Meanwhile, we sought to have an interview with the spokesman of the APC in Kwara State but his phones rang severally without an answer.
On his part, the Chairman of the Caucus for Progressive Change, a factional group within Kwara State chapter of the APC, Alhaji Samari Abdullahi confirmed the development and promised to address the press on the subject matter soon.
