The former caretaker committee chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Rivers State, Igo Aguma, has dumped the political party.
Aguma’s resignation came shortly after the Supreme Court verdict which gave Isaac Ogbobula the right as caretaker committee chairman of the party in the state.
“It is now clear that it is not within the purview of the court to protect the rights and privileges of members of a political party, in this case, the APC,” Aguma said in a statement on Friday.
“It is the APC that should protect the rights of her members but has failed to do so.
“I cannot continue to be a member of a political party that endangers and does not give any form of protection to the rights of its members and has no respect whatsoever for its own constitution at all but chooses to be run against democratic principles intoto for self-destructive purposes.
“Therefore I announce my exit from the All Progressives Congress immediately. To God be the glory,” Aguma stated in the statement.
The Supreme Court verdict and Aguma’s resignation from the party has laid to rest the protracted crisis over who calls the shots in the Rivers State chapter of the party.
