Old CPC Members In Ekiti State Dump All Progressive Congress To Labour Party


Scores of the defunct members of the Congress
for Progressive Change (CPC) yesterday
dumped the All Progressive Congress and
merged with the Labour Party in Ekiti State.
Speaking with the newsmen in Ado Ekiti
yesterday , the ex-CPC Chairman in the State,
Babatunde Ajayi alleged sidelining and
marginalisation of his members by the
leadership of the APC Interim Committee in the
State since the consummation of the merger in
It may be recalled that the defunct Action
Congress of Nigeria, All Nigeria’s People’s Party
and CPC had last year fused into one to be able
to present a formidable opposition to the
Peoples Democratic Party.
Ajayi, who in the midst of other former Local
Government executives of the party spoke with
newsmen added that members of the defunct
CAN had been treating other merging parties
with much disdain and contempt. He added
that some of his members had earlier staged a
protest in Ado Ekiti shortly after the merger,
which was later resolved with the intervention
of Governor Kayode Fayemi, whom he said gave
the assurance that all the wrongs to his
members, would be addressed.
