BENUE : APC Chairman, Members Of Executive Resign


APC Chairman, Executive Members Call It Quits, Tender Resignation. 

Kwande Local Government Area APC Chairman in Benue state Mr. Iorfa Dzoho, together with some members of his committee, as well as the party executives from five council wards have resigned from the party  in the gale of defections that recently hit the party in the state. 

They all pledged to join Chief Mimi Adzape-Orubibi in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, next Saturday at her public declaration in Adikpo, Kwande LGA Headquarters.

They made the pledge on Wednesday at the Kumakwagh Council Hall in Azaibo Adikpo where Mrs. Adzape-Orubibi tendered her letter of resignation from the party to the ward chairman, Mr. Terwase Aheeve. The Kwande APC chairman, Mr. Dzoho stated that he and some of his colleagues decided to team up with Mrs. Adzape-Orubibi because the APC had resorted to running a closed shop by excluding majority of its members from the recent ward congress.

He said the PDP leader in the state, Governor Samuel Ortom gave him assurances that he would accommodate their interest if they joined him and that he believed the Governor because he keeps his promises.

Mrs. Adzape-Orubibi who was the former APC Benue North-East Senatorial Candidate in the last general election convened the meeting of stalwarts of her former party members from the five Wards in Turan community to inform them about her decision to leave the party.

She stated that part of her decision to join the ranks of the PDP was informed by her determination to contribute towards the emergence of the next Governor of the state from the party.

She explained that she had no ambition to run for election in 2023 “but rather to strengthen the PDP so that l can be reckoned with in the scheme of things.”

Mrs. Adzape-Orubibi also said she was leaving the APC because the party had failed to tackle the worsening insecurity and economic woes confronting the country as well as the unending herdsmen attacks and killings which had left over one million persons living in Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps in Benue state.
