A group of patriots and elder statesmen in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, this evening at 1600 hours formed a splinter party they have named as Advanced All Progressives Congress, AAPC.
Speaking at a well attended press briefing in Abuja, protem chairman of the new party, Otunba Ajakaiye Indiorumbe, said they decided to go their separate way after attempts to make the APC organise a National convention and constitute a board of trustees for the party failed.
Present at the briefing were such notable APC leaders like, Alhaji Dambata Maikudi (Natl Sec ), Olorogun Omotejokwo Anababa (Publicity Secretary ) and Ogbuefi Nwashiegokama Onyoshishi among others.
