A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former member of the House of Representatives, Elder Chidi Wihioka, has dumped the party.
This is coming hours after a former acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Dame Ibim Semenitari, resigned from the party.
Wihioka who is a strong ally to Senator Magnus Abe explained in his resignation letter addressed to the APC chairman in his ward (Elele Ward 3) in Rivers State that he decided to dump the party because of the high-handedness of one man who feels he owns the party.
The statement read in part, “I wish to officially inform you of my resignation from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
My decision was taken based on the high-handedness of one man who thinks
And believes that he owns the party in Rivers State and his refusal to allow peace (to) reign in the party by giving everyone in the party equal level playing ground.
“I will announce my next political party when I have found a suitable political one to join.
“Nevertheless, my decision will not affect my support for the presidential
Candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as I will always drum support for him anywhere I find myself.”
