The crisis rocking the All Progressive Congress, APC, took a turn for the worse as the former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau and former Sokoto State Governor, Attahiru Bafarawa and other prominent foundation members met on Friday to decide on a new national executive committee for the party.
The aggrieved APC leaders who formed the nucleus of the merger of ANPP, ACN and CPC to form CPC are unhappy that the new APC National Leadership resolved to hand over the party structure to defecting governors in Kano, Adamawa, Sokoto, Rivers and Kwara State.
According to them, the action of the APC leadership only considered the funds the defecting governors brought to the party, rather than the resources invested by the founding fathers of the party.
Shekarau stated that the meeting in Sokoto was aimed at moving the party forward and to seek the next step that would be in the interest of all concerned.
He added that the decision to start another course of action will be determined after the aggrieved founding members exhaust all avenues.
However, it was gathered that the process for a parallel national executive has been concluded by the former governors, who believe that they would act once the party insists that it will stick to the defecting governors in the matter of the control of the party hierarchy at the states.
