The Northern Elders Forum on Tuesday predicted that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will soon be controlled by former members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The spokesman of the forum, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed while speaking on the forthcoming national convention of APC said some former PDP members would occupy some office in the party.
Baba-Ahmed in a series of posts on Twitter said PDP would also see some APC members in its leadership in the future.
He said, “By the time APC concludes the selection of its new leaders in a few days, you are likely to see the vast majority of former PDP members in control of APC.
“PDP’s new leaders will also have a heavy presence of former APC stalwarts in charge of its future. Do the math. What will be new?”
He also stressed that some smaller political parties would be controlled by a lot of former PDP and APC chieftains.
Baba-Ahmed further stated, “There will be many former PDP/APC big wigs in charge of smaller parties as well. People who see parties only as election platforms are unlikely to move to small parties just to make up the numbers. They will move there to take over and realize personal ambitions. What will change?.”
