With a view to retaining the mantle of leadership of Nigeria for the third time in a row, the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) will try to capture most of the states in Nigeria before the actual forthcoming presidential election. Despite the efforts of the leaders of the party, there are still some states that will be difficult for the ruling party to capture before the year 2023 presidential election.
The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has been battling with some internal party crisis even as it works hard to resolve the leadership problems at the national level. The crisis is very serious in some states as the sitting Governors and some top party leaders engage in power tussle over who controls the party structures in some states.
States Where Gold, Sapphire, And Aquamarine Are Found In Nigeria, And How It Can Be Properly Managed

Ahead of the 2018 Governorship primaries of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), it was rumoured that former Chief of Staff of the state, Alhaji Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola, was to be imposed on the Osun State chapter of the party, as the governorship candidate.
There is one issue that can make lots of top politicians depart from the APC to the alternative party, the People's Democratic Party (PDP). The defection would even be mass because the top politicians will surely take some of their loyalists along with them to the PDP.
The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has been in the news over the crisis rocking the ruling party in the State.

While the faction called The Osun Progressives (TOP) is loyal to the immediate past Governor of the State and Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the other faction is loyal to the current Governor of the State, Gboyega Oyetola.
It is no more news that the Governor of Osun State, Governor Gboyega Oyetola and his Predecessor, Rauf Aregbesola are fighting each other, over the Leadership of the Party. It was reliably gathered that Aregbesola and his Loyalists complained of being marginalised in the Party. Aregbesola's Loyalists were not given any juicy Political appointments, in Oyetola's Administration.
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has taken action against some members of the party who are aspirants for top posts. As a party that values party discipline and loyalty from members, the PDP Governors and other party leaders had a meeting and made some tough decisions on how to punish the members for disobeying the party.
It appears fresh crisis may be brewing in the Southwest Zone of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after a party source revealed to the Punch that Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde is backing the candidacy of Taofeek Arapaja, for the post of deputy National chairman at the 30th and 31st of October national convention because there is a possibility he may end up being the national chairman of the party.
It all looks like Mr. Rauf Aregbesola doesn't have much power in the Osun State political arena anymore. A faction, which is loyal to him, conducted a parallel congress on Saturday in Osogbo. He may not have to struggle much before he gets power. He can actually gain more influence in the party.

Photo: Alao Akala, culled from the Vanguard It could be recalled that Senator Ademola Adeleke emerged as the Governorship candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2018 Governorship election in Osun State and he, commendably, lost the main poll to the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola on narrow margin.

Actually, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) would want to struggle to claim Anambra State. The state would elect a new governor in next month barring any unforeseen circumstance.
