Three days after the Director of Civil Society of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Presidential Campaign Council announced her resignation, another chieftain of the party has dumped the party and its standard bearer.
Benjamin Apugo who is a Board of Trustees (BoT) member of the All Progressive Congress APC made this decision known on Sunday.
Following his decision to quit the APC and dump its presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Apugo solicited support for the presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, saying that Obi’s integrity, competence and pedigree put him ahead of other candidates.
The Abia State politician addressed newsmen at the weekend at his Ibeku Umuahia country home.
Apugo accused the Muhammadu Buhari administration of neglecting Abia State, saying there is no federal presence in the state.
“APC has not done anything for Umuahia and Abia State where I come from,” he said.
Furthermore, he stated that the APC has not lived up to expectations and should not be voted for in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Apugo took to the cleaners all the Igbo political elite making uncomplimentary remarks on Obi, describing them as self-centered.
According to him, the candidature of the former Anambra State governor has brought respect and honour to the Igbo race.Follow us on social media
