Adekunle Akinlade, a godson of former Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Akinlade said his decision to dump the party was as a result of the failure of the national leadership of the APC to settle the rift within the party in Ogun State.

Akinlade, in a letter addressed to the former State Chairman of the APC, Adeniyi Derin, maintained that he could not in good conscience continue to participate in a process that is characterised by injustice.

“This is to formally notify you of the resignation of my membership from the All Progressives Congress, APC.

"This decision became necessary because of the failure of the National Leadership of the Party to intervene fairly in the internal crisis rocking the Ogun State APC.

“As a principled and forthright individual, I cannot in good conscience continue to participate in a process that is devoid of justice,” the firmer House of Representatives members stated.

Akinlade described as unfortunate that despite his loyalty and efforts to prevail on the party for justice and fairness, the national leadership of the party led by Abdullahi Adamu had continued to ignore pleas and complaints that bother on the lopsided state congresses, local government elections, party executive elections, the delegate list, and recent party primaries.

He also noted that the failure of leadership of the APC in Ogun to uphold the sharing formula as agreed by the various stakeholders and parties was one of the reasons for leaving the party.

Akinlade is yet to announce his next move as the 2023 elections draw nearer but there are speculations that he might be heading to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Akinlade had in 2019 left the APC to contest the gubernatorial election under the platform of the Allied People’s Movement (APM) after the fall out of the party’s primary election.
