The Le­gal Ad­viser of the All Pro­gres­sives Grand Al­liance in Imo State, Ifeanyi Olumba, has re­signed his po­si­tion.

The politi­cian, who com­mu­ni­cated his res­ig­na­tion to the party on Mon­day, said that he re­fused to be part of the po­lit­i­cal al­liance be­tween his party, and the All Pro­gres­sives Congress.

Tran­si­tion Com­mit­tee Chair­man of the Orlu Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of the state, said his con­science would not per­mit him to be part of any po­lit­i­cal ar­range­ment be­tween his party and the im­me­di­ate past gov­er­nor of the state, Rochas Oko­rocha.

While con­vey­ing the rea­son for his res­ig­na­tion to APGA, Olumba said, “I re­fused to be part of an al­liance that is as­so­ci­ated with Rochas Oko­rocha.

“There­fore, as the Le­gal

Ad­viser of the All Pro­gres­sives Grand Al­liance here in Imo State, I reign my po­si­tion. “

The leader of APGA in the state, Sen­a­tor Ifeanyi Ara­raume, vis­ited Oko­rocha at his res­i­dence at Og­boko in the Ideato South LGA of the state dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod.

The ac­tion fu­elled spec­u­la­tions that the APGA and the APC wanted to form an al­liance against the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party-led gov­ern­ment in the state.
