The All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Parliament in Bauchi State has accused the party returnees of plotting with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to destabilize the party.
The group which threw its weight behind state chairman of the party, Uba Nana and other party officials, also alleged that the returnees are planning to factionalize the APC in order to cause turmoil within the state.
The youth in a statement issued on Sunday and signed by the Secretary-General of the Parliament, Nasiru Cigari, said: “The returnees had worked assiduously for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other parties during the last general elections when they failed to secure APC tickets to actualise their political aspirations.
“The only way, according to them, is to fractionalise the party and bring about turmoil and fracas within its hierarchy. This is part of their quest to secure tickets in the forthcoming party congress and by extension the general election.”
