2023: Rivers APC Crisis Braces For Another Twist As Abe Purchases Governorship Form

The Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Delta State, Ogheneluemu Sylvester Imonina, has renounced his membership of the party.

Naija News understands that the party chieftain confirmed his withdrawal from the ruling party in a letter he made available to the party on Tuesday, January 18.

Imonina though has refused to make public his reasons for dumping the party, he showed appreciation to every member of the party for the support they gave him while he was still the acting spokesman for the party in the state.

He said in the letter: “I want to use this opportunity to thank the leaders of my ward, LGA, APC, Isoko Nation and members of the party across the state for the support given to me while I contributed my quota to the development of the party.

“To everyone who supported me, I say a big thank you.

Naija News reports that Imonina’s withdrawal from the APC is coming shortly after the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, had confirmed February 26 as the date set aside for the party’s national convention.

Buni who spoke on Tuesday at the ongoing Progressive Women Conference in Abuja, said the date is sacrosanct and nothing will stop the convention from holding.

He, however, urged women in the party to come out massively and contest in the forthcoming national convention.

He said: “The party under my stewardship conducted membership registration and revalidation exercise. We found it expedient to constitute a special committee on women and youth before the commencement of the exercise. The roles you played made the membership registration and revalidation a huge success.

“Today, APC parades over 41 million registered members, asserting our position as Africa’s largest political party and of course, Nigeria’s leading political party. With these, we are confident of winning the 2023 general election with huge success.

“I want to use this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your support to the party, before during and after the exercise. I also look forward to your more support during the convention and indeed the general election.

“I’m proud to add that APC is the most women-friendly party in Nigeria. Let me also assure you that the party shall reciprocate this gesture by supporting women and youth in their political aspirations and realising their political dreams.

“We look forward to having more women contesting in the forthcoming national convention of the party from February 26, 2022, and the general election. Now as we approach the convention and move closer to the next general election, I wish to remind you of the progressive roles in supporting progressive-minded leaders, aspiring for various offices for the betterment of our country.”
