John James Akpanudoedehe, the former spoksman of the All Progressives Congress APC’s Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC, has left the party.
This development came in the run-up to the party’s primaries with uncertainty looming over a consensus option amongst the Southern presidential aspirants.
In a letter dated 4 June 2022, he announced his resignation to the APC Chairman of his Offot Ward 6, Uyo in Akwa Ibom State.
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 the 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 over time 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”.
