A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Kawu Baraje has said if the issues rocking the ruling party are not quickly resolved, he may quit. Speaking to journalists in Ilorin yesterday, Baraje who announced the formation of New PDP, in 2013, which led to five serving governors of the then ruling party to eventually align in the formation of the APC, said: “If I have to be grateful to any political party, I think, it is the PDP and if I can leave that party, then you will know that the party had gone seriously against my principles of life. If I can leave the PDP because of impunity, lack of respect for the rule of law, then, do I want to continue in another party that way? But it has not got to that level.
“That is why we are sounding a note of warning that gradually some of these problems are creeping into the APC.Most of the distractions were created by APC itself. For instance, Senate President Bukola Saraki, who is heading an important arm of government, is not getting the necessary support from the party.” On the current situation of things in Nigeria, Baraje said: “I belong to the group that is not satisfied with the performance of the party… we are not happy with the performance of our party. I am not a prophet of doom, neither am I a political prostitute. Are you happy going to queue up for up to two to three hours? Are you happy that electricity is not functioning well and people sleep in darkness? What we are saying is that majority of Nigerians are not happy and we need to make them happy.”
