National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar are reportedly considering floating a new party ahead of the 2019 general elections, Newsmen reports.


The report quoted a source as saying both Tinubu and Atiku are unhappy with the presidency but do not want to come out openly on it.

Tinubu’s anger with the Presidency started after the running mate to the party’s late governorship candidate, Prince Abubakar Audu, James Faleke, was subsequently replaced with the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello.

Other issues according to the source include, leadership crises at the National level and the Ondo election that saw the emergence of former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, as the party’s candidate in the upcoming governorship election in the state.

Following the emergence of Akeredolu, Tinubu had demanded the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun for allegedly overruling the party’s National Working Committee, NWC’s recommendation asking for the cancellation and conduct of a fresh primary poll in the state.

According to the source, “Tinubu is having a serious realignment with Atiku on the possibility of pulling out with their teeming supporters if President Muhammadu Buhari continues to look the other way.

“While Tinubu expected to win Kogi, Atiku wanted to be the chairman of the BoT, but the presidency frustrated their efforts.”

  2. Go to Hell you both. Nigeria is NOT your father properties.
    Looks for something else to do. Politics is NOT a do or die affairs.
    Remember, your 6 feet and God is waiting for you, someday, sometimes.

  4. Both men are strange bedfellows and can not work together because of their greed for wealth and power, Tinubu's friends should advise him to stay and rebuild his broken party, that's the right thing to do

  5. The rantings of two year olds. It cannot always be your way but let us hope that this is not true because it is a sure way to play themselves out of contention.

  6. Do they really have the interest of advancing the state of the economy? No. No. No. I think greed and self interest is playing out, Nigerians are no f***s! They had better have a rethink, lest they spell doom for themselves .... (That's if the gist is true anyway)
