ABUJA– The rank of Kogi State chapter of All Progressive Congress, APC, has depleted as one of its chieftain and governorship aspirant in the 2015 election, Prince Mohammed Abdullahi, is set to dump the party for Accord party.
Abdullahi’s exit would be a big loss for the party’s state chapter, which has being enmeshed in intra-party squabble in the recent time, especially in the aftermath of high wire political manoeuvring occasioned the demise of the party’s governorship candidate for the November 21, 2015 election, Prince Abubakar Audu.

Vanguard gathered from a reliable source close to the businessman turned politician that formal ceremony to usher him into his new party would take place at the Lokoja Stadium, Kogi State.
The source quoted Abdullahi as saying, “he and his supporters have found a platform in the Accord party which we believe has a manifestoes we can implement to take our people out of the present rate of poverty to the developmental level which God has placed us with the resources to achieve.
“The people should see our ambitions as a movement to liberate them and I believe we can do it as it is possible. I am a man of principles and I believe that as a loyal party man I need to respect views of every other party organs.
“I am of the view that the principles that led us to join APC as a political organization to achieve our political interest and aspirations is being eroded by some powerful political interest who have vested interest. The vested interest we are talking about is not about the people”, he said.
