A former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Shaeed Akinade-Fijabi, has warned that a new party will be created if the All Progressives Congress deny its National Leader, Bola Tinubu presidential ticket in 2023.
Akinade-Fijabi in his statement said third party in favour of Tinubu would challenge both the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The former lawmaker stated this on a radio program in Ibadan on Saturday while reacting to the possibilities of the former governor of Lagos State emerging as Nigeria’s next president.
Fijabi, who represented Ibadan Northwest/Southwest under APC, at the 7th and 8th Assembly said: “Our people are unpredictable, there might be emergence of third party to counter the two existing ones (PDP and APC) if Asiwaju Tinubu is denied presidential ticket by APC in 2023.”
He further stated that the ruling APC would come back better during the 2023 election in Oyo State.
He added that reconciliation is currently ongoing within the party to unify all the aggrieved members.
