I stand by my resignation from APC –  Vice chair 

The immediate past Vice Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state, Chief Francis Inegbineki, has debunked speculations that he had rescind his decision to quit the party.

Inegbineki who disclosed this to journalists in Benin City on Monday said: “I stand by my resignation from the APC, and cease to be a member.”

He said, “I saw my photograph with the APC governorship candidate on the social media, suggesting that I have rescind by decision to quit APC.

“Yes, it is true that Senator Monday Okpebholo visited me after I turned in my resignation letter because they know that an Iroko has fallen.

“I didn’t rescind my decision. I said no, and I stand by my resignation. Tsunami will happen in APC. I am only leading the way.”

Inegbineki’s resignation from the party is coming barely three months to the September 21, governorship election in Edo state, 

His decision was contained in a letter dated June 7, and addressed to the ward 9 chairman of APC in Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo state.

Inegbineki cited recent developments in the local government and the state APC which according to him, conflicts with his core principles and values as reasons for his decision.

He added: “this has led me to do a serious evaluation of my political future in Edo state and decided on the way forward.”

The APC was yet to react to the development as at the time of filing this report.
