A group, APC 360 has raised the alarm over what it described as mass exodus of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to other political parties and called for urgent steps to stop the ugly trend.
APC 360 which consist of aspirants who collected and paid for interest and nomination forms to contest for various elective positions during the party primaries across the 36 States of the Federation and Abuja called on the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu, to urgently set machineries to stop the act of decamping of APC members to other political parties.
A statement by the group’s national secretary, Dr Chris Enoch, emphasised that “We are discomforted and worried at the rate at which some powerful members of this great party are drifting to other parties by way of decamping and our blood pressure is being raised by the fact that the party hierarchy seems to be sleeping or deliberately closing their eyes to this frightening situation”
The group described the defections as a planned and calculated strategy to frustrate the victory of Tinubu at the forthcoming general elections by those who have issues to settle with the party or are holding grudges, and are working against the party.
“APC 360, as a critical stakeholder and watchman of this party, cannot close its eyes against this dangerous trend sweeping away our members like the flood of Mesopotamia. We view this as hazardous and harmful to the health and wealth of our great party, particularly when we are preparing to go for elections,” the group stated.
The group however alleged that some aggrieved members of the party who are not satisfied with the manner through which the party treated them after obtaining forms for the primary but could not contest at the primaries due to the party’s arrangement on the one hand while others are borne out of the allegation that the party hierarchy abandoned and relegated them into the background after victory instead of acknowledging or compensating them for their huge efforts and heavy commitment to the party before and after the primary for sponsoring the defections.
