Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Johnkennedy Uzoma Ow­erri

Im­me­di­ate past in­terim chair­man of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Imo State, Prince Mar­shall Okaforanyanwu, yes­ter­day said he does not re­gret re­sign­ing as APC chair­man in the state.

Speak­ing with Daily Trust in Ow­erri, the for­mer chair­man said he has con­cluded con­tact with the lead­er­ship of the party he wants to join, adding that at the ap­pro­pri­ate time and date, he would make it pub­lic.

Okaforanyanwu in­sisted that he was mov­ing out of APC with 200,000 mem­bers across the state to the new party with a view to cor­rect­ing what he de­scribed as anom­alies in APC.

He said that as for­mer chair­man he op­er­ated un­der dif­fi­cult en­vi­ron­ment oc­ca­sioned by un­due govern­ment in­ter­fer­ence, un­ful­filled prom­ises and star­va­tion of fund say­ing he had en­dured it un­til he left the party.

The for­mer chair­man pointed out the ab­so­lute dis­re­spect and ne­glect of APC, a sit­u­a­tion where mem­bers of the party are made to op­er­ate un­der di­rec­tives of the chief of staff to the gover­nor, de­scrib­ing it as lack of re­gard for party con­sti­tu­tion and guide­lines.
