APC Totally Defeated, Set To Surrender Juicy National Assembly Positions To The Winning PDP

The National Vice Chairman, South-South, of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Hilliard Eta, captured the feeling of his colleagues, when he described the loss of Zamfara State to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as a sad development.

Indeed, members of the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee, NWC, could not comprehend the declining fortunes of the party at an emergency meeting, at the National Secretariat of the party, in Abuja.

The party Chieftains, who were locked in an intense blame game, were subsequently driven to the Presidential Villa, at the instance of President Muhammadu Buhari, to explore avenues of managing the situation.

The self-inflicted damage has further compounded the APC’s woes in the North, which hitherto was regarded as the party’s traditional base, in view of the fact that Zamfara State has now joined its peers in Sokoto, Bauchi, Adamawa, Taraba, and Benue States, which are already in the PDP fold.

The sad development further weakened the party’s numerical strength in the National Assembly, with its 65 Senators now reduced to 62, while its Members in the House of Representatives plunged to 217 from 224.

In fact, there are very strong indications that ahead of the National Assembly Leadership election, the APC Aspirants for the Senate Presidency, Senators Ahmed Lawan, Danjuma Goje, and Mohammed Ali Ndume, could be forced to concede the Deputy Senate Presidency and Chairmanship of some key Committees to the PDP, which now boasts of 49 Senators in the Upper Legislative Chamber.

The Young Peoples Party, YDP, still occupies one seat, while the fate of two outstanding seats “won” by the outgoing Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, and Senator Ben Uwajumogu, are yet to be determined by the courts.

Already, one Aspirant for the Speakership of the House of Representatives, Mohammed Umar Bago, conscious of the realities on ground, has openly promised to share the Committee Chairmanship seats with the opposition parties on equal basis, in defiance of the APC Leadership.

Femi Gbajabiamila, who is the APC’s top contender for the Speakership, is said to have made concessions to the PDP caucus, in order to achieve his goal.
