A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State, Dr Joseph Kum Asan on Thursday announced the resignation of his membership from the party.
In a letter of resignation addressed to the Mbayongo Council Ward Chairman of the party in Vandeikya local government area, Dr Asan accused its leadership of imposing a governorship candidate on the people.
Asen stated in the letter that the recent developments showed that the APC had been turned into an instrument of political mechanisation by a segment of the party’s leadership.
He described the imposition of a gubernatorial candidate on Kunav people and Benue State at large as totally unacceptable.
According to the APC chieftain, Fr Hyacinth Alia shall not have any political post-tenure value to his people, stressing that he considered it a conspiracy against the Kunav nation by the leadership of APC in the state.
“Since I could not be party to the conspiracy, I have no choice than to look for a viable political vehicle to actualize my objectives.
“My resignation from the APC is in good faith, I resigned to safeguard the Kunav political independence and my self esteem,” he said.
