Chief Tom Ikimi, a leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has actualised his threat to leave the party. In a letter to the APC on Tuesday, Ikimi announced the withdrawal of his membership of the party.
“I have made the decision to withdraw my membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC) from today, 27th August 2014,″ Ikimi said in the letter.
It is not clear if, like other decampees from the APC, he will be joining the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as his letter did not give any hint of his next political destination. move in the letter.
If he joins the PDP, as is widely believed, Ikimi will be returning to his original habitat, where he was Chairman PDP National Convention Presidential Election Panel in January 2003.
Ikimi fell out with leadership of APC, following his failure to actualise his ambition of becoming the party’s National Chairman at the party’s national convention in June.
He alleged that he was schemed out of the race for the position though he was not present at the convention venue where Chief John Oyegun was elected chairman.
The leadership of APC had consequently raised a team headed by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to appease him and other chieftain of the party who were aggrieved about the outcome of the congresses as well as the earlier states and local congresses.
