National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar are reportedly on the verge of floating a new party ahead of the 2019 general elections, Daily Trust reports.

It was gathered that an alliance between the two political heavyweights appears imminent considering their recent displeasure with the presidency.

A source was quoted as saying both Tinubu and Atiku are unhappy with the presidency but do not want to come out openly on it.

“Tinubu is having a serious realignment with Atiku on the possibility of pulling out with their teeming supporters if President Muhammadu Buhari continues to look the other way,” the source told the aforementioned newspaper.

The source further claimed that their displeasure was as caused by the outcome of last year’s governorship election in Kogi state, the APC’s Board of Trustees (BoT) conundrum and the recent governorship primary election in Ondo, among others.

Explaining, the source said: “While Tinubu expected to win Kogi, Atiku wanted to be the chairman of the BoT, but the presidency frustrated their efforts”.

He further disclosed that Tinubu’s discontent with the presidency kicked off after James Faleke, who was the running mate to the late Prince Abubakar Audu, was subsequently replaced with the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello, consequent upon the sudden death of Audu.

Other issues according to the source include, leadership crises at the National level and the Ondo election that saw the emergence of former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, as the party’s candidate in the upcoming governorship election in the state.

Following the emergence of Akeredolu, Tinubu had demanded the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegunfor allegedly overruling the party’s National Working Committee, NWC’s recommendation asking for the cancellation and conduct of a fresh primary poll in the state.

According to the source, “Tinubu is having a serious realignment with Atiku on the possibility of pulling out with their teeming supporters if President Muhammadu Buhari continues to look the other way.

“While Tinubu expected to win Kogi, Atiku wanted to be the chairman of the BoT, but the presidency frustrated their efforts.”

  1. I don’t think i will blame anyone who decides to leave the ruling APC because the President and his trusted allies(CABALS) has hijacked the soul of the party making it incondusive for the other party members especially those that gave their all for the APC to emerge victorious in 2015.
    The First lady has said it all in her interview with the BBC and we heard the Mr President reply……
    God save Nigeria
