The race for 2019 Presidency may have split the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) into three camps, battling for the soul of the party. The three main camps are the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) caucus, defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) cum South-West caucus and new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) caucus. Sources said there are other sub-camps and caucuses that are ready to align with the main three camps when need be. 

The tussle in APC is in connection with the 2019 general elections and the body language of President Muhammadu Buhari regarding the presidential election. The three contending factions are scheming to produce chairman of the influential Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party. The struggle for control in the party started shortly after the presidential election on March 28, 2015. Buhari loyalists said as it was time the president became the undisputed leader of the party, while others objected. Members of the defunct ACN and the nPDP believed the president should only serve one term.
