The immediate past National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Senator John Udoedehe has dumped the ruling party.

He has joined the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP.

Senator Udoedehe’s resignation letter from the All Progressives Congress sent to his ward chairman was posted on Facebook on Monday 6th May.

The former Minister in the letter dated 4th May said his resignation from the APC was due to the wrong manner at which the party handled its nomination processes in Akwa Ibom State.

“I write to notify you of my resignation from the All Progressives Congress forthwith. Henceforth, I cease to be a member of the APC in my ward or anywhere for that matter. I hereby relinquish all rights which inured to me as a member of the APC, member of the National Advisory Council and member of National caucus of the APC.”

“The decision to part ways with the APC is a tough one, but leadership entails adherence to the wishes of the vast majority of associates, allies and supporters who have shown fidelity overtime and have now witnessed the obduracy of the APC in handling the candidates selection processes in Akwa Ibom State.”

“Our greater goal of providing service to the people of our state remains sacrosanct”, the letter reads.

Meanwhile, Senator Udoedehe was already at the venue of the governorship nomination of the New Nigeria Peoples Party taking place at Sheer Grace event center, Uyo, as of the time of fielding this report.
