The decision of aggrieved members of the newPeoples Democratic Party (nPDP) in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to dump the party by forming the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC) has continued to generate reactions from Nigerians.

The birth of the APC faction was announced at a press conference at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Abuja, on Wednesday where Alhaji Buba Galadima was announced as its National Chairman, Dr. Fatai Atanda (Oyo State) as National Secretary and Kazeem Afegbua (Edo State) as National Publicity Secretary.

Addressing newsmen, Galadima said the decision to form the R-APC was a fallout of the APC congress, which he described as null and void due to the violations of the party’s constitution, TheNation writes.

He described the APC under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari as “rudderless” and “incompetent”, adding that the R-APC remained the authentic party and does not need to approach the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for registration, adding that anyone who feels uncomfortable with the arrangement can go to court.


Galadima described the change promised by the APC as a “fake change”, adding that the RAPC would bring real change in the 2019 elections under his authentic leadership.

“We are saying that we are the authentic leaders of the APC, if anybody disputes that, let him go to court, we will meet him there. Do the Senate President and the Speaker belong to any party? If they were members of any of the four parties (that formed the APC) you mentioned, it means they are part of this,” he said, before going on to list new executive members.

Galadima noted that the incident in Kwara State where three leaders of the senatorial zones denounced the APC yesterday was just a tip of the iceberg as more people would soon join the R-APC.

Meanwhile, the newly elected chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole, has yet to comment on the emergence of the R-APC.
