2023: List of states APC may lose due to internal crises

APC flag APC flag

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) recently attributed his party's loss in the 2022 governorship election in Osun state to internal crises.

If this was true, it means the APC risks losing not less than 20 states in the 2023 general elections.

Just like it did in Osun, the ruling APC may lose some states in 2023 due to internal crisis.

This, according to a report filed by Vanguard, is because the mentioned 20 states are also battling internal crises ahead of the next general polls.

The crises mainly resulted from the "unresolved supremacy battles and fallouts of recent party primaries."

It was gathered that aggrieved members have not sheathed their swords despite President Muhammadu Buhari's intervention.

While some have dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other parties, others remain but may work against the party in the next elections like in the Osun election where party faithful were alleged to have worked against APC, Vanguard reported.

Below is the list of states where APC is embroiled in internal crises, according to the report.
