We were not recognised – nPDP leader acgashilizes APC of breaching several promises
– Leader of the nPDP, Kawu Baraje, claimed that APC has broken many promises it made to members who decamped from PDP
– Baraje said the nPDP is agitating for inclusion because the ruling party has refused to carry members of nPDP along in the party
The leader of the ne Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Kawu Baraje, has addressed the issues of segregation and factionalisation in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Baraje, in an interview with Success Nwogu, said the APC has failed to carry along defectors from PDP and members of the nPDP have continuously face opposition from the party.
Baraje said: “We were not carried along. We were not recognised. Where we thought that we wanted to run for elective position, we met stiff oppositions, and when we give advice, they are not taken. The major thing that any average politician would want ever is recognition. These are some of the things that were breached.

These are statutory positions in that arm of government for God’s sake. They know what we are talking about. Anyway, we are happy about their letter, because they think Nigerians are myopic. Nigerians can now see who is deceiving who.“
