Thousands of discontented members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) dumped the party to form what they described as a “Third Force”.
In an event which took place on Saturday in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital at an event center where the decamping exercise was carried out is coming just as political activities for the 2023 election gained momentum in the state.
The event center with wide capacity which contained thousands of APC aggrieve card-carrying members burnt scores of brooms, which is the symbol of the party.
The Kwara Central Senatorial Chairman, Alhaji Abdulfatai Abdulrahman – flanked by other notables leaders – who addressed the gathering, said their “New party will soon be unveiled in due course”.
However, many of their supporters donned the paraphernalia of the Young Peoples Party (YPP) believed to be sponsored by a former gubernatorial aspirant, Yakubu Gobir.
