Nigeria: Dissent within the APC ruling party

Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) saw a dissenting group break off July 5 to form a new party called the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC). Led by Buba Galadima, the new party cited a failure by the Mahamadu Buhari-led administration to deliver good governance. The new party, as well as President Buhari’s APC and other Nigerian political parties, are maneuvering to win the country’s presidential elections scheduled for February 16 and governorship and state assembly elections set for March 2, 2019.
