The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Bolaji Abdullahi, has resigned his position and announced his exit from the ruling party. In a statement signed by him today, Abdullahi said he has had to endure the flagrant usurpation of his role as the spokesman of the party in a manner that he considers unbefitting of a ruling party and inconsistent with his ethical standards.
The former APC spokesperson said he served the party honestly and to the best of his ability, adding that it was a keen desire to continue to do so when he contested election at the last convention.
He, however, said it became imperative for him to review his position in a situation where his loyalty was allegedly brought into question and his subordinates purportedly deployed to subvert his office.
He also described the dissolution of the party executive in Kwara State by the APC national leadership as “another phase in the unrelenting assault” which he had to endure.
The former APC spokesperson stressed that as a national officer of the party in the National Working Committee, his views ought to be sought on a matter that concerned his state and in which he was directly involved.
Abdullahi noted that he cannot continue to function as the spokesperson for the party when his personal principles were not compatible with its purported expectations.
