The Ogun State governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement, APM, in the 2019 general election, Adekunle Akinlade popularly called Triple-A has resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Ogun State.
Akinlade, in a letter addressed to the State Chairman of APC, blamed the failure of the National Leadership of the Party to intervene in the internal crisis in the State Chapter of the Party.
The former member of the House of Representatives said he could not in good conscience continue to participate in a process that is characterised by injustice.
The letter addressed to the State Chairman reads, “This is to formally notify you of the resignation of my membership from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“I left the Party temporarily to contest the gubernatorial election and returned in December 2019. I have since remained loyal to the Party both here at home and National level.
“It is unfortunate that despite our loyalty and efforts to prevail on the party for justice and fairness, the leadership of the party at the National HQ has continued to ignore our pleas and complaints that bother on the lopsided State Congresses, Local Government Elections, Party Executive Elections, the Delegate List, and recent Party primaries.
“Then, the refusal of the Ogun State Party Leadership to uphold the sharing formula as agreed by the various stakeholders and parties.
“It is on this end that I have decided to resign my membership in the All Progressives Congress.”
