A former Legal Adviser of the APC, Muiz Banire, on Sunday said mass defections were imminent in the party.
Banire hinted that the factions not recognised by the national leadership of the APC might be forced to exit the party.
Speaking on Sunday Politics, a current affairs programme on Channels Television which was monitored by one of our correspondents in Abuja, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria recalled predicting the present developments in the APC.
Banire said, “The implication is simple: that is factionalisation of the party all over. It started from the ward congresses, through the local government (area congresses) to the state (congresses). It is unlikely or unexpected that even at the national convention, you are likely to have the same thing. If you recall vividly some few months ago, I did predict it that it would happen. Certainly, the implosion, in my very strong view, is inevitable.”
According to him, most of the people that are already outside or declared to be outside by the party “will find their way elsewhere…to another platform. I think that will be the eventual consequence.”
