A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to be known as New APC (nAPC), will soon be launched across the country, the Kwara State chapter of the party has said.

The party, in a statement on Tuesday, declared that like minds in APC in different states of the federation had concluded plan to launch the  New APC, to safeguard the ship of the party from sinking.

A statement by the interim state chairman of the party in Kwara State, Reverend Bunmi Olusona, indicated that leaders of the party, including General Mohammed Buba Marwa, Attahiru Bafarawa, Ibrahim Shekarau and Mohammed Dele Belgore, were working to prevent imminent implosion in the party.

Proponents of the faction, however, pleaded with their members in Kwara not to be in a hurry to leave the party.

It stated its plan to launch the New APC would surely bring succour to the members.

“We also warn our members not to participate in any membership registration exercise organised and supervised by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed-led government or agent like Alhaji Lai Mohammed,” the statement read.

It rejected plans by party leaders to cede structures of the party in the states to new entrants, adding that a number of party members were asking the question about the bastardisation of the progressive ideology of the party.

Meanwhile, as the interim National Executive Committee (NEC) of APC meets in Abuja tomorrow over the crisis rocking the party, ranking members contesting party structures in their respective states with sitting governors that defected from PDP may be considered for outright expulsion. Shekarau, Bafarawa, Marwa and Belgore are the likely heavyweight casualties.

The national leadership of APC said it recognised the defected governors as leaders of the party in their states, a development that the old members of the party had been contesting.
