The All Progressives Congress in Cross River State has issued a quit notice to some aggrieved members.
This is coming as the Chairman of the party, Alphonsus Eba revealed the development in a radio program.
Recall that some members of the party who were not pleased with consensus arrangements of the party have expressed displeasure.
According to Eba it is not compulsory for disenchanted ones to remain stuck in APC when they can decamp or form their own parties.
“If any one of you feels dissatisfied with the decision of the party to go for consensus candidates you can decamp to other parties who are looking for candidates and pursue your ambitions.
“Better still, you may proceed to form your own party where it can be possible to impose your candidature.
“In APC, the decision of the party is supreme.”
Speaking to journalists, a party stalwart, John George Alaha who spoke on behalf of one of the aspirants, said, “consensus is never part of democracy.
“We have spent money to buy forms, do declarations and consultations, and we are asked to step down. This is not going down well.”
Another chieftain, a US-based Archbishop, Ikpeme Johnson, called on political parties in Nigeria to tread the issue of consensus candidates cautiously.
