The much anticipated merger of the Kawu Baraje led New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) with the All Progressives Congress (APC) came into being today as the aggrieved governors of the PDP from Niger State(Babangida Aliyu), Kwara (Abdulfatah Ahmed), Sokoto (Aliyu Wamakko), Adamawa (Murtala Nyako), Kano (Musa Kwankwaso), and Rivers (Rotimi Amaechi) voted to join the All Progressive Congress while Governor Sule Lamido abstained.

This follows months of bickering with the mainstream PDP and the Presidency over the leadership of the party and the President over his purported 2015 Presidential ambition,after several threats by the aggrieved PDP members to join the APC

This has put paid to speculations that the faction will join the APC
