Nigeria’s ruling party, APC, held its state congress in several states on Saturday. The congresses were to elect new leaders for the party in Nigeria’s 36 states and Abuja.
The congresses at several states, however, show a party that is unable to resolve its differences as parallel congresses were held in many states.
The parallel congresses occurred both in states governed by the APC and those governed by opposition parties. The split of the party, in many states, also shows the rift among top leaders of the party including those holding sensitive elective and appointive positions in the federal government.
