The All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA), House of Representatives aspirant for Ukwa East/Ukwa West federal constituency in the 2018 primaries, Ejikeme Alozie-Nwagboso, has announced his resignation from the party.
This was contained in a letter, addressed to his party’s Ozza Ukwa ward chairman and issued to reporters in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, Thursday.
Nwagboso said he dumped the party over lack of direction by the Victor Oye-led National Working Committee(NWC) of APGA.
The APGA chieftain’s letter reads partly, “I, via this letter, and in exercise of my constitution and legal rights to belong to a political party of choice, hereby tender my resignation of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, with immediate effect.
“I had earlier submitted that the State chairman, Reverend Augustine Ehiemere and the National chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Oye, should step aside, due to their lack of appropriate direction of the party.
“It is ethical, as a result, that, I resign the membership of the party at this time. I thank you, and every member of APGA for the roles you all have played while as a member”.
Akelicious recalls that the Abia state chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance,APGA, is currently enmeshed in leadership crisis following parallel congresses conducted by the Reverend Augustine Ehiemere-led factional leadership of the party.
Meanwhile, the camp of Dr. Alex Otti, the party’s governorship candidate during the March 9, 2019 gubernatorial election in Abia, elected Hon. Nkem Okoro, a former local government area chairman, as the new Abia chairman of APGA, in a well attended State congress held in Umuahia, the state capital.
