The first Military Administrator of Abia State and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State, Air Vice Marshal Frank Ajobena (rtd) has resigned from the party.
He dumps APC over the decision of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, which is to settle for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
The APC National Caucus member revealed that the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the party was “the highest level of insensitivity to the Christian faith in the country.”
In a statement on Tuesday, Ajobena said Tinubu doesn’t respect Christians in the country which is why I chose a Muslim.
He furthered that Tinubu’s action showed that APC members could easily be bought over by money.
The statement reads in part: “Tinubu is not my enemy; I am not against him. But let’s call a spade a spade. It is not my character to be a double agent; I am not pretending; even though I like the APC, the right thing should be done.
“The decision could be described as one that portrays arrogance and total disrespect to us, Christians, in the APC.
“Such an action is a minus to our democratic system.
“A man must stand for something, else will fall for anything; hence, I am quitting”.
During the weekend, Tinubu had announced former Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
This was when his placeholder, Kabiru Masari, stepped down from the role.
