The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Bolaji Abdullahi has tendered his resignation to the party leadership amidst multiple defections to the opposition in Kwara State
Mr Abdulahi who had on Tuesday dismissed speculations that he has resigned his membership of the party announced Wednesday afternoon saying he resigned both his position as National Publicity Secretary and membership of the party.
In a statement made available to newsheadline247, Mr Abdulahi said, “In view of recent political developments in the country and within the All Progressives Congress (APC), I have decided to resign my position as the National Publicity Secretary as well as my membership of the party with effect from today.
“In the last few days, I have had to endure the flagrant usurpation of my role as the spokesman of the party in a manner that I consider unbefitting of a ruling party and inconsistent with my ethical standards.
“I have served the APC honestly and to the best of my ability and when I stood for and won my election at the last convention, it was a keen desire to continue to do so.
“However, in a situation whereby my loyalty is constantly brought into question; my subordinates deployed to subvert my office; and my views constantly second-guessed on the basis of my political affiliation, it has become imperative for me to review my position.”
