APC Looses A Grassroot Politician And Mobilizer To The Opposition
A grassroot chieftain of the All Progressive Congress APC, Hon. Bukie Okangbe has defected from the ruling APC to the opposition party. The news of her defection broke up from a source close to the grassroot politician and mobiliser. She was said to have left the party as a result of many anomalies going on in the party especially from the party leadership. The source who pleaded anonymity said the grassroot politician has had it to the brim hence, the reason for her action.
Until her defection from the All Progressive Congress APC, Hon Bukie Okangbe was the National Coordinator of National Progressive Hub, a strong support group of the APC with members across the country especially at the grassroot level. A former Chief Press Secretary to the executive chairman of Boki Local Government and a State Assembly aspirant in Cross River State under the APC in the last concluded primary. Also she’s the SSA New Media to Cross River State governor.
The news of Hon. Bukie Okangbe’s defection to many APC members was an indication that the party lacks good reward system and a sign that the party is not committed to the welfarism of her committed members.
Her support group, National Progressive Hub is a foremost support group of the APC projecting and promoting the party both online and at the grassroot level. Her defection is no doubt a great disaster and loss to the party as the ruling APC should be prepared for massive exodus of committed party faithfuls especially the young generations mostly at the grassroot where her influence is mostly dominated across the country.
According to a chieftain of the party from Kano state who claimed to have known Hon. Bukie Okangbe through some of her activities at the grassroot level prayed the news shouldn’t be true as the party cannot afford to loose a grassroot mobiliser of her calibre and capacity at this critical time. He therefore call on the leadership of the party to as a matter of urgency resolve any issue or matter that might warrant such sudden and drastic decision from such a loyal member of the party.
