The face-off between Nigeria’s ruling party APC and the renegade faction known as R-APC has reached new dimensions.

The war of words between Nigeria’s rulling party and the splinter R-APC group started with a behavior of non challance on the part of the APC chairman who at first described the splinter group as being inconsequential. He had publicly exclaimed they would never “lose sleep” over R-APC and it’s members.
Now it has dawned on the APC helmsman that the R-APC trully meant business and held at their disposal the true spirit and soul of the APC. Galadima claimed he owns 60% of the structure upon which President Buhari rode to power in 2015.
Oshiomhole has resorted to visiting R-APC members at midnight.
Buba Galadima recalled meeting Mr. Oshiomhole at about 2 am the home of Rabiu Kwankwaso, a high ranking member of the R-APC. Surprisingly, the tables has turned and Oshiomhole is now losing sleep over the previously deemed ‘inconsequential’ fellows.
Oshiomhole is now engaged in a seamless battle to redeem his party by wooing back members of the breakaway faction using some juicy offers. Those targeted in his charm offensive include Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Kawu Baraje, high ranking senators including Rabiu Kwankwaso, others like Kassim Afegbua and other senior ranking aggrieved n-PDP chieftains.
Buba Galadima in his usual witty rhetorics has fired at Adams Oshiomhole.
“I didn’t want to join issues with Adams Oshiomhole because he is just a filthy rat. He so forgot that in 2003, he was commissioned by Obasanjo to produce a false public opinion as Labour leader against Buhari and abused the hell out of him”
