TRUE APC emerges as Ruling Party splits into two in Kaduna

Barely six months after sweeping the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) out of power, the All Progressives Congress has divided into two factions in Kaduna State.

The new faction which prides itself as the 'True APC' are said to be unhappy with the government of Governor Nasir El'Rufai, whom they accused of not doing anything in line with the change mantra that the party represents. They also accused the governor of denying the people of Kaduna the true change they yearned and voted for.

Members of the new faction include the retired permanent secretary, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, Hajiya Hafsat Baba, former ANPP chairman, Alhaji Kabir Umar, former education commissioner, Mr. Tom Mataimaki Maiyashi, Alhaji Lawal Maiturare, Nasiru Ahmed; special adviser on strategy to Senator Shehu Sani and Murtala Abubakar who is the publicity secretary.

Alhaji Murtala Abubakar who is the publicity secretary of the new APC said: “ members of “True –APC” are responsible people who successfully worked hard to remove the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and put our party in power, it is with tremendous reluctance that we make public, issues and grievances that should have the responsibility to address them. The group said there is no available avenue left and they would fail millions of people who expect the party to operate with requisite standard of responsibility and accommodation if they continue to remain silent. The same millions of people who require the state government under our great party to show sensitivity to the feelings of our people in the discharge of its mandate need to know where we stand on the disturbing issue of the clear contempt for decency being exhibited by the state administration.”

The “True-APC” went further to say that what is most alarming is the absence of functional and autonomous party structures in the state. ”The state has created a long distance between the state government and the teeming party members” .
