Kassim Afegbua, the spokesman of the Reformed All Progressive Congress, R-APC, has said that the focus of the splinter group is to remain within the APC and rescue it from predators.

Afegbua told Vanguard that the R-APC was for now not concerned about joining any political party as that isn't the splinter group's main focus for now.

We haven’t gotten to that bridge yet. People are just trying to be preemptive. There is no discussion about party. We are poised to rescue our party first from the grip of political buccaneers and predators”, said Afegbua.

The emergence of R-APC has sparked off speculations that it was planning to merge with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party PDP.

There is no breakup in our party, if one Galadima is not happy, that is fine. He has a right no to be happy.

“If he chooses to call himself whatever he wants to call himself,  that is not the issue. I will not lose my sleep over that. We know those who are in the system.  Those who are seeking breakup that is their problem," Oshiomhole said.
