Former House of Rep Aspirant Wofai Ewa Resigns From APC, says party not aligned with manifesto

A former aspirant of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to the Abi/Yakurr Federal constituency seat, Engr. Wofai Ewa has resigned from the APC, sighting the inability of the APC to follow through with its manifestoe.

In a letter addressed to the ward chairman of Ikpakapit Ward and seen by our correspondent, wofai held that he joined the party because of its promise to provide Nigerians with true democracy and fight corruption but that has not been the case.

The letter reads in part; I write to convey, first my deepest gratitude for the opportunity given to me to aspire under the All Progressive Congress (APC) platform, and secondly, my sadness at having to resign my membership of the APC."

The letter further reads, "I joined the APC in the belief that we could offer Nigeria a better alternative, and most importantly an opportunity to enjoy true democracy through the various elements of the APC manifestoe, which endeared me to the party, along with Mr. President resolve to confront the status-quo, laden with corruption and misgovernace. Sadly, this has not quite been the case."

Wofai therefore states that "for these reasons and a few more which I may have personally communicated to you directly, I have decided to exit the party and further the aspirations of my people via a more stable and promising platform, with a single
united and forward leadership."
