• As internal crisis threatens Akeredolu’s membership
Would unintended actions from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Southwest geopolitical zone collude to pave the way for the resurgence of main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that once held sway in the region?
That question has continued to agitate the minds of APC chieftains in the zone, particularly in Ondo State where the simmering internal crisis seems to be threatening Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s continued membership of the ruling party.
In readiness for the 2020 gubernatorial election in the state, various political parties have started strengthening their systems and structures. This is just as the main opposition PDP has been strategically positioning its forces so as to be able to reap from the looming crisis in APC.
Perhaps against the backdrop of what happened in Adamawa and Bauchi States, some chieftains of the party have predicted that the internal crises rocking APC could not only make it extremely impossible for Governor Akeredolu to get reelected, but also capable of rocking the boat.
