New power blocs emerge in APC ahead of 2023 presidential election .

 The ruling All Progressives Congress is currently going through stormy waters . This is as various power blocs within the party battle to take over the key structures of the APC .


 Reports say the Congress for Progressives Change within the party is having the upper hand already 

A report stated that the dissolved executive committees had their allegiance to the sacked APC national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and his dissolved National Working Committee (NWC).

To that extent, the former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has also been sidelined with Oshiomhole being his key ally. 

Even with the title ‘national leader,’ Tinubu is not a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC), where high-wire politics is played and decisions are taken. Therefore, to dissolve the former executive committees was to sweep off the remaining part of the old structure.

 This will enable the enthroning of a new order. APC as an association of some legacy political parties, including the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the Congress of Progressive Change (CPC), and the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) seems to be one-sided at the moment.

 In the ensuing political power struggle, the CPC seemed to have outsmarted other members of the legacy parties. 

There is also the new PDP members in the APC who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC in 2014, but only the minister of transportation, Chibuike Amaechi is the notable member of the group remaining in the APC as the rest have since gone back to the PDP.
