He went on to state that his resignation from the APC was done so that he can back the presidential ambition of Peter Obi, the governorship bid of Chijioke Edeoga, and the senatorial dream of Okey Ezea, respectively, in the LP.

“I cannot in good conscience defend the party’s presidential ticket in the coming campaigns for the 2023 general elections.

“I also can no longer bear the dictatorial manner in which the party is administered in the state.

“I believe that Obi, Edeoga, and Ezea are the best candidates for presidential, gubernatorial, and Enugu North Senatorial elections, respectively…

“The problem with some of our members is that I have refused to yield to their selfish demands. It is no longer business as usual.

“The APC needs members that have capacity, competence, and electoral values and not those who cannot win their polling units.”
