The factional caretaker chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State, Igo Aguma, has resigned from the party following a Supreme Court ruling which recognised Isaac Ogbobula as the authentic caretaker chairman.
Aguma in a statement by his media aide, Livinstone Wechie said the party has failed to protect the rights of the members.
According to him “I have received the Supreme Court judgement which dismissed my Appeal challenging the Court of Appeal decision which upturned the High Court judgment that declared me as Acting Chairman of APC in Rivers state.
“It is now clear that it is not within the purview of the Court to protect the rights and privileges of members of a political party, in this case, the APC. It is the APC that should protect the rights of its members but has failed to do so.
“I can not continue to be a member of a Political party that endangers and does not give any form of protection to the rights of its members and has no respect whatsoever for its own constitution at all but chooses to be run against democratic principles intoto for self-destructive purposes.
“Therefore I announce my exit from the All Progressives Congress immediately. To God be the glory”.
