The tsunami sweeping through the All Progressives Congress looks set to continue as Abdulfatah Ahmed, governor of Kwara state, says he might quit the ruling party.
Gov. Ahmed gave the hint when he hosted stakeholders in Kwara central senatorial district on Thursday.
After the meeting, his chief press secretary, Wahab Oba told newsmen that the stakeholders prevailed on Ahmed and Senate President Bukola Saraki to immediately dump the APC.
Ahmed, who agreed with them that the party “has not met the expectations” of the electorates, also expressed disappointment over the “failure” of the government at national level to address insecurity, economy and unemployment challenges confronting the nation.
“We formed APC together in 2014 with the hope to meet the needs and aspirations of the people in critical areas of our national life,” he said.
Ahmed thanked the people of the state for their support, saying he would consider their pleas and make public the new platform that would “meet the aspirations” of the people of the state.
His threat of defection comes bare a day after Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State ditched the APC for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
This follows the stunning loss of 52 federal legislators after a wave of defections hit the APC this week.
