The Deputy National Publicity Secretary and member of the National Working Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Murtala Yakubu Ajaka has resigned from his position in the party and joined Social Democratic Party, SDP.
Ajaka’s resignation was contained in a letter dated 17th May 2023, addressed to the national chairman of the APC.
Ajaka, in the letter, said he has also communicated in writing to the Chairman of APC, Ajaka Ward in Igalamela/Odolu Local Government Area of Kogi State.
The letter reads in part: “Kindly permit me to extol the exemplary brinkmanship, astuteness, sagacity and political dexterity with which Your Excellency, being supported by the current National Working Committee, have successfully bonded the hitherto fragile fabrics of the Party; firmly enough to record the most eminent victories in the last general elections.
“Having proudly won the presidential election therefore, I have the utmost faith that the Party, under your charge is able to help the incoming administration upgrade the standard of governance for the greater good of Nigerians.
“I also, by this medium wish to thank my fellow NWC members for their extra-ordinary camaraderie while we worked together, it is my hope that we are parting ways on the basis of principle, only to meet again, in due course”.
Recall that Ajaka who is a big political force from Kogi East, was barred from participating in the All Progressives Congress governorship primary in the state held last month.
The former APC member is reportedly clearing the ground to pick the governorship ticket of the Social Democratic Party, (SDP) in the November 11 Governorship election in Kogi State.
