Lai Mohammed Led Factional APC In Kwara May Dump Party For PDP or SDP


The crisis rocking the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) is yet to settle, despite the party concluded national convention.

It had been reported there were 208 court cases in different part of the country by Aggrieved APC members.

In Kwara State, findings by our correspondent revealed that members of the APC faction led by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had removed the party’s flag from their secretariat, while a visit to the factional secretariat on 26 Abdulrazaq Road, Flower Garden, GRA, Ilorin, also showed members had deserted the building.

A member of the state House of Assembly representing the Ojomu/Balogun Constituency in the Offa Local Government Area, Saheed Popoola, who is a leading member of the Lai Mohammed faction, announced his defection to the Social Democratic Party on the floor of the Assembly last week.

It had been confirmed by the House member, he had exited the APC in a chat recently

The Publicity Secretary of the APC faction elected at the parallel congress organised by the group, Ibrahim Sharafadeen, disclosed this in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents.

“We have exited the APC officially, but we have not declared for any political party. Our leaders have not made any public declaration on which political party we are moving to. We will make it public very soon,” Sharafadeen stated.

Asked if the faction would move to the SDP, Sharafadeen said no, adding, “That was the sole decision of Popoola, who informed the Kwara State House of Assembly that he had defected from the APC.”

It’s however not clear if they would settle for PDP or SDP fingers are crossed for the next action to be taking.
