A former Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung has resigned his membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dalung served as minister from 2015 to 2019 and took to criticising the APC after he was not reappointed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Dalung in his letter of resignation to the APC ward chairman in Sabin-Gida, Langtang South Local Government Area of Plateau State said recent developments in the party conflict with his values.
“This is to convey my withdrawal of membership from the All Progressives Congress with effect from the date of this notice,” the letter signed on April 18 reads.
“It is worthy of mention that recent developments in the party conflict with my core principles of values which define the basis of allegiance to the party.
“Of note is the fact that internal democracy is critical to the survival of representative democracy without which political participation remains a mirage.”
In January, the former minister said the Buhari-led government failed Nigerians by not delivering on its campaign promises.
