WAR OF POWER: APC Chiefs Continue To Throw Deadly Blows, As Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Set To Decamp Any Moment From Now

Sponsored link
The Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, is under siege, ahead of the 2019 general elections, following the face-off between President Muhamamdu Buhari, and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
Sources have alleged that the face-off which is almost tearing Northern Nigeria apart, may lead to the immediate decamping on the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, to another party.
Recall, that Senator Shehu Sani had recently called on Buhari to go and make peace with Tinubu, as the 2019 general elections draw near.
The face-off is primarily between the Buhari loyalists, who are predominantly new comers to the party with other founding members on one hand, and the group that feels they are the legitimate owners of the party, on another hand.



The new comers, including the immediate past State Chairman of the party and Nigerian Envoy to Trinidad and Tobago, Alhaji Hassan Ardo Jika, still pledge their loyalty to Buhari.
On the other hand, the “owners of the party”, comprising of the State excos are perceived to have thrown their weight behind the Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, known in the local parlance as ‘Maman Taraba’, who has been the financial backbone of the party in the State.
Alhassan has never hidden her unalloyed support to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, and just recently, she declared that she would resign her position as a Minister, should Buhari declare his interest to contest the 2019 Presidency.
Investigations however, revealed that the fight in the APC, was about securing the Governorship ticket for the Minister of Women Affairs, Hajia Aisha Alhassan, ahead of 2019, a task she believes was only achievable, if she aligns with Atiku, who also supported her greatly in the 2015 election year.
Alhassan is said to feel threatened by the calibre of high profile politicians that have decamped to the party now, and feels she might not get the party’s ticket to run for the Governorship of the State.
