Minna – Former deputy governor and APC chieftain in Niger State, Ahmed Musa Ibeto, has resigned from the ruling party as a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council.
This was announced in a letter he addressed to the APC Chairman in Ibeto Ward in Magama Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday.
Ibeto said he resigned from the ruling APC due to internal crisis in the party which he believed remain threats to the success of the party in the state.
Ibeto, until his resignation was also the Assistant Secretary of the North Central Directorate of Mobilisation and from all organs of committee of the APC.
“Mr Chairman, with my many years of active participation in politics and as a former party administrator, an elected official into many political offices, I have come to this conclusion for many reasons, chiefly among which are the absence of unity of purpose among party members and stakeholders occasioned by internal conflicts, unending litigations, internal threats and counter threats of anti-party activities, lack of genuine reconciliation coupled with lack of commitments and dedications to the success of the party by many stakeholders,” the letter read.

An official of the party in the state told Daily Trust that Ibeto’s resignation from the APC was one of the many resignations expected from the party members as they prepare for 2023 elections.
“These resignations are motivated by selfish interests. We expect more of them to defect but what we want to assure is that we will continue to work for the party to win.
“Most of them that are leaving have no political relevance. So, we don’t bother,” the official, who preferred anonymity, said.
