Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Usani has dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the People’s Redemption Party, PRP, this paper can report.

Although he is yet to make his decision public, inside sources knowledgeable about the move told our reporter that the former Minister will officially unveil his new political party in the coming days.

A pioneer member of the ruling APC, the 62 years old Nko-born politician, was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs between November 2015 and May 2019.

Pastor Usani who never hid his desire to contest the 2023 governorship election in Cross River State is expected to emerge as the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Redemption Party.

Last month, in an interview with our reporter, the former Minister insisted that he will be contesting the governorship election under the APC, “I have tried to see the Governor, but maybe because of his busy schedule, he is yet to give me a date. I feel like the leader of our party in the State, I should give him the respect that he deserves. But if I wait for a while and I still can’t see him, then I will have to send him an electronic message by way of informing him,” he said.

He had over the weekend detached himself from the State APC consensus candidate which produced Sen. Bassey Otu as the party’s governorship flag bearer.

  • It has been very cloudy here and outside forces like to keep it that way. I believe the fog is beginning to clear and a clear direction for the people will hopefully be visible. A house built inside a house that was inside a house with all different rules makes it very confusing and unfair playing field for the people. They give a discount to the paper but still charge full price for pencil, and when they ask for a return they get the full picture + some.
