A former Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, who served under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Dalung submitted his letter of withdrawal dated April 1, 2022, and signed by him on Monday, to the Ward Chairman of the party in SabonGida Ward, Langtang South LGA of Plateau State.
Part of the letter read, “This is to convey my withdrawal of membership from the All Progressives Congress with effect from the date of this notice.
“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.”
Following the crisis that engulfed the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC in Plateau State as a result of the local government council primary elections last year, the party set up a 15-man reconciliation committee.
The party said the committee was saddled with the responsibility of reconciling aggrieved members across the seventeen LGAs in the state.
Almost all the local government councils in the state had a lot issues during the primary elections, some even protested, while others vowed to resist any imposition by the leadership of the party in the state.
