The deft Machiavellian and superior sagacious political acrobatics of Saraki and r-APC
movement have left APC breathless and confused.
The R-APC led by Alhaji Buba Galadima, a former close associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, recently broke out from the ruling APC and claiming to be the authentic APC.
This resolution to fuse the R-APC into the PDP came on the heels of the consummation of an alliance between the PDP and 38 other political parties under the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) intent on ousting President Buhari and his ruling APC from power for what they saw as his gross incompetence in the management of the country particularly, security and the economy.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, confirmed the decision to absorb the R-APC after the NEC when he said: 'NEC also approved the discussion members of the National Working Committee had been having with the members of the R-APC.
According to Hunkuyi, he and his political associates in the r-APC
were at the secretariat to interface with the party's stakeholders in the State on how to crush the APC government in 2019.
In Kaduna State, the R-APC, the bulk of Akida and Restoration groups, has been on the throat of the present government since Governor, Nasir el-Rufai assumed the mantle of leadership in the state.
Thus, when their several appeals to get the ears of the former national leadership under Chief John Odigie-Oyegun failed, they did not waste time in aligning themselves with the national R-APC when the opportunity came.
Since then, the R-APC has been meeting and consulting with people of like minds to see how it will wrestle power from the governor as well as to find an alternative platform for its members who wanted to seek elective offices.
Spokesman of the R-APC, Kashim Afegbua said in a statement on Sunday that juicy offers being dangled on members of the R-APC would not stop their planned defection from the troubled APC.
Afeghua said in a statement: 'We members of the R-APC find it very amusing that those who boasted that they won't lose sleep over our altruistic action, have been hopping from door to door pleading with our members not to leave by dangling juicy carrots and promising them heaven and earth.
Despite the spirited moves aimed at stalling the defection of Senate President Bukola Saraki and members of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) to the rival Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) indications have emerged that the President of the Senate is set to launch his presidential aspiration for the 2019 race.
It was confirmed that notwithstanding the offers that might be placed on the table by President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the APC at a meeting to be held in the presidential Villa later on Sunday, the R-APC has concluded on the need for defection.
