PDP Mole In APC Already, APC Chieftain Says

With just 3 months in power, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Alhaji Abdulkadir Ahmed, has alleged that there are certain persons in the party working for the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Abdulkadir Ahmed said some of the aspirants seeking to become the party’s flagbearer for the Kogi state gubernatorial election are moles.

Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja, Ahmed said more than a dozen aspirants parading themselves as APC governorship aspirants were moles loyal to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“We have it on good authority that the PDP is sponsoring 15 of the 28 governorship aspirants expected to contest the next Saturday’s primary poll. The PDP is determined to ensure that one of its own flies the party’s tickets and it has committed huge resources to actualise the project.

“If the ‘APC candidate wins the November 21 poll, he will move back to his original platform, the PDP,” he alleged, ” he said.

Meanwhile, the PDP Vice Chairman South-south, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, has described Mr Ahmed’s allegations as a false alarm.

Reacting to the claim, he said; “If they know the PDP is sponsoring these aspirants, why can’t they disqualify them during the screening? They (APC) are not ready for the coming Kogi State governorship elections. We are ready and they know that the people will vote for us again. They are only trying to find excuses where there is none so that when we win, they would say we rigged,” he added.

It would be recalled that there seems to be a crack in the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party over the second term bid of Governor Idris Wada of Kogi state.

According to The Nation, PDP governors and members of its National Working Committee (NWC) are divided over whether or not to support Governor Wada who is also contesting the gubernatorial polls.
