Former Senate leader and the Senator representing Southern Borno, Alhaji Ali Ndume has broken his silence following the emergence on Wednesday of a rebel group from the All Progressives Congress called – the Reformed APC (R-APC).
According to NAN, the lawmaker dismissed the new group, saying that only God and time could determine the direction of the APC in 2019.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Alhaji Buba Galadima who is the National Chairman of the Reformed APC, had yesterday announced its formation at a news conference at the Sheraton Hotels in Abuja on Wednesday.
However, senator Ali Ndume while airing his mind said the threat by the R-APC and nPDP to leave the APC would never spell doom for it, but only God and time would tell.
The Senator who admitted that politics is all about interest, said there was however, nothing wrong if an aggrieved group voices out its displeasure.
He added that movement from one political party to another is normal in politics.
“What is happening is part of politics, especially now in our political days, all of us are Nigerians and we know what is happening.
“So, politics is about interest and if somebody feels that his or her interest will be more protected by voicing out his dissent, it is Ok.
“This party is a party of time, decided by Nigerian masses and it is only God that can decide the time of a political party: God and Nigerians know that APC government is the light at the end of the tunnel,” the Senator said.
Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, APC National Publicity Secretary was more laconic in his reaction. He said the party leadership would get the full details of what happened.
