Late Audu’s son set to
dump YPP for APC
• Might be compensated with guber ticket for father’s death
The late Audu was the governorship standard bearer of the party during the 2015 race.
Mustapha Audu’s recent visit to the presidency is said not to be unconnected with reports that his romance with the YPP may be coming to an end.
Some political pundits in both Abuja, the seat of power and Kogi, have however posited that such a move will amount to a betrayal of the YPP, which not long ago gave him the ticket to contest the forthcoming Kogi governorship election.
Unconfirmed reports have it that there are moves by the presidency to compensate the loss of his father, who died shortly, while on his way to winning the November 21, 2015 Kogi governorship election.
Since declaring for the YPP over a month ago, the late Audu’s son has been under pressure from members of his family and Kogi APC elders, to return to the ruling party.
Why the date for his return to the APC remains unknown, a source close to the family said, “it will happen in a matter of days.”
