The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is strategizing to absorb any shock in the event that aggrieved members of the nPDP decide to move elsewhere, multiple sources in the ruling party said yesterday.
The group recently petitioned the national chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and copied President Buhari among other party big shots.

 
The petition, dated April 27 was signed by the National Chairman of nPDP, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje and Secretary, Chief Olagunsoye Oyinlola.
However, sources said the petition was a fait accompli because many of the nPDP members had perfected plans to move out of the APC to other parties.
One of the sources pointed out that the group’s secretary and a signatory to the petition, Chief Oyinlola, had resigned as board chairman of a government agency and also left the party to join the African Democratic Congress.
It is being supported by former President Obasanjo’s Third Force which had launched a campaign to oust Buhari from power.
The existence of the letter was only known on Wednesday May 9, when Baraje led other members to the national secretariat of the APC where they gave a seven-day ultimatum to meet Buhari. 
The ultimatum would elapse tomorrow amidst fears that in the event President Buhari did not grant them audience, the petitioners would leave the party.
When contacted yesterday on what the party was doing to beat the deadline given by the aggrieved members, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, said: “Well, I’m not aware if anything is being done at the moment.   It is possible that some things have been done. But it is not what I’m aware of. I have been out of Abuja. I have been in my state participating in the congresses.
“It’s possible discussions or things are happening beyond my own clearance level. But it’s not what I’m aware of.”   
A credible source told Daily Trust that long before the petition, nPDP governors who are now mostly in the Senate had been meeting “on the way forward.”
According to him, “They cannot be wished away easily because some of them are still strong in their various constituencies and they could cause grievous injuries to the APC. Yes, they are no longer in control of enormous resources and many are not in good terms with serving governors in their states but they should be heard to avert catastrophic outcome in the coming months,” he said.

Results of Saturday’s local government elections in Kaduna State have been dogged by controversies as officials of the Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM) in many polling units absconded from their posts leaving vital documents after conclusion of voting.

 
The All Progressives Congress (APC) is leading in the results so far announced by media houses in the state.
The KADSIECOM headquarters was deserted when our correspondent visited the place. There were no officers to respond to enquiries.
Results monitored by our correspondents showed that the APC won the chairmanship and councillorship seats in 13 local governments while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won three local governments so far.
The PDP has however rejected the results.
The party said it will soon release its field results to challenge the results being announced on media platforms.
PDP State Chairman, Felix Hassan Hyet, said at a press conference that his party has been short-changed in the results announced so far in the 13 local government areas of the state.
He said most of the results announced so far were through radio stations rather than through the returning officers whom he said disappeared from their posts.
Hyet said some electronic voting machines were snatched and taken to unknown destinations.
“At the moment we have some local government areas like, Kaduna South, Chikun, Kajuru, Jema, Kagarko, Sanga, still awaiting to be announced as the returning officers are nowhere to be found. The returning officers have disappeared completely. Even, some wards returning officers also disappeared.
“We are waiting for the returning officers to come out and announce the results in local government areas yet to be announced. Our agents have submitted the results to us and we will take necessary legal steps to address the injustices,” he said.
Kaduna has 23 LG councils but elections were suspended in two - Jaba and Kaura - of them.
The APC won in mainly northern and central parts of the state but was able to win one local government in the south.
The LGs won by APC are Soba, Zaria, Lere, Ikara, Makarfi, Birnin Gwari, Giwa, Kagarko, Kudan, Igabi, Kajuru and Kaduna North local councils.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) however won the
