Few Hours To Presidential Primary, Former Minister Dumps APC
The letter titled; ‘Resignation of my membership of the All Progressives Congress’, reads; “I write to notify you of my resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC), forthwith.
“Henceforth, I cease to be a member of the APC in my ward (ward 6 in Uyo LGA) or anywhere for that matter. I hereby relinquish all rights which inured to me as a member of the APC, member of the National Advisory Council and member of National Caucus of the APC.
This decision to part ways with the APC, is a tough one, but leadership entails adherence to the wishes of the vast majority of associates, allies and supporters who have shown fidelity overtime and have now witnessed the obduracy of the APC in handling the Candidates Selection processes in Akwa Ibom State.
“Our greater goal of providing service to the people of our dear state remains sacrosanct”.
Akpanudoedehe served as national secretary of the party for nearly two years under Gov. Mai Mala Buni’s CECPC, and only left when Senator Iyiola Omisore was elected in his place at the party’s national convention on March 26.
Senator Godswill Akpabio, a presidential aspirant and former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, has been at odds with the former Minister over control of the APC structure in Akwa Ibom state.
