- Group leader Kawu Baraje says his group is disappointed that what they left the PDP over is happening on a higher level in the APC
- Baraje says the group is crying out over the problems in APC because they want what is best for the ruling party
- The group had held a meeting with the leadership of the APC just recently to resolve their differences
A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) called nPDP has condemned poor governance within the ruling party's structure which is breeding unhappy members.
The leader of the group Kawu Baraje said the poor governance in the APC was worse than what his group complained about in the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party.
Making his case in an interview with Punch on Saturday, May 26, Baraje said the group is witnessing similar issues it complained about years ago but on a high level.
"As far as we are concerned, the defunct nPDP is a group that will continue to live for a long time as long as the political situation in Nigeria continues because it consists of leaders and not only that, these leaders are now bringing up vanguards.
"What does that group stand for? It stands for good governance and delivery of dividends of democracy to the common man. That is what we stand for and today, we have travelled a long way in APC and we discovered that there are some of those things, if not all those things, that led us to complain when we were in PDP, that are even worse now.
"If we are leaders that’s worth our salt, we should not be ashamed to cry out that what we cried against is now repeating itself. So, it is like history is repeating itself. And time is so short to call it history; it is just three years ago. Maybe that is how short human memory is."
Legit.ng had reported on Sunday, May 20 that the members of nPDP were set to withdraw from the ruling party after the expiration of their recent ultimatum to the leadership of the party.
According to the report, should last-minute efforts by the national leaders of the APC and members of the nPDP who met on Monday, May 21, fail, the faction would leave the party.
