Aggrieved excos at the All Progressives Congress have hinted on a mass defection out of the ruling party should the state of affairs rocking the party boat persists.
APC has had parallel Government within its ranks in most states of the federation.
Anonymous sources within the party hinted that many members of the state exco plan to dump the party for good before the general elections while others are opting to remain in a state of inactivity.
In South West the group largely made up of the late governor Lam Adesina’s supporters, and Adebayo Shittu’s group, some aggrieved supporters of Governor Abiola Ajimobi and those who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party and Accord Party, have vowed to defect en masse soon.
Aggrieved exco members had ealier sought legal redress in court over the crisis bedeviling the party but indications are pointing that the group may nkt wait out the outcome of the court before opting out of the party.
In South East, the leadership of the Nwoye faction as been put on hold by the judgment of an Enugu Federal High Court had made an interim order restraining the APC national leadership from recognising Nwoye as the Enugu State chairman, pending the determination of a suit filed by the Ogbodo’s camp.
In blatant defiance to the ruling, the party’s national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, inaugurated Nwoye.
The spokesperson for the Ogbodo faction, Mr. Melvin Onuora, said his group was waiting for the court to determine the matter.
He said, “There is nothing like inauguration, what happened was nothing but an attempt to scuttle the court order.
“Now that the court has given a date for the judgment, we will wait until the court decides but we are confident.
“As far as we are concerned, there was no inauguration. We are waiting for the court to decide.”
The factional spokesman was, however, silent on whether his group would consider leaving the party, though sources among them said they were ready to quit in order to protest the injustice.
Onuora insisted that they would continue to push their case in court until ‘justice’ was done.
