Ilorin, Kwara state – Twenty thousand member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state have reportedly renounced their membership of the party.
The Kwara Central APC senatorial chair, Abdulfatai AbdulRaman, said the members renounced the APC in the state to form Kwara Third Force, The Nation reported.
He stated that the party members decided to leave the Kwara APC following the lingering crisis in the party.
AbdulRaman says members who left were from 16 LGA in the state.
AbdulRaman stated that the members of APC who left the party comprised of local government party chairmen, women and youth leaders, ward chairmen as well as APC stalwarts across all the 16 local government areas in the state.
Daily Trust reported that the politician alleged that the just concluded APC membership registration and revalidation in the state was a grand design to disenfranchise many members.
“A grand design that denied majority of party members the opportunity to register and revalidate their membership across the state is a 2023 permutation agenda. We can never cross our fingers and watch the game from the sideline.”
AbdulRaman also accused the Kwara state governor of trying to impose his candidates in all elective positions within the party.
