No fewer than 300 aspirants, who had contested for elective positions on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in Kano State have dumped the party.
The aspirants said their decision was due to gross injustice allegedly meted out to them during the recent primary elections.
The spokesman of the aggrieved aspirants, Senator Isah Zarewa, disclosed this while briefing newsmen shortly after a meeting of the aggrieved aspirants at his residence in Kano on Monday.
Zarewa said internal democracy ought to be allowed to take precedence, especially when it comes to allowing party members contest for any position of their choice.
From what had happened during the primary elections, the norm of internal democracy was blatantly submerged, he said.
He noted that the spate of internal wrangling in the party in the wake of the disputed primaries would not have arisen if all the contestants in the state were fully convinced that there was no foul play or any gimmick.
We were highly offended because our grievances have not been heard by the leadership of our party at all levels. One can clearly understand that we were treated badly.
We were all stakeholders in making APC great and have the capacity to ensure its victory at the polls. We were made to believe that we are no longer relevant, hence our decision to pull out, he said.
