Ogun state APC governorship aspirant, Prince Adekunle Akinlade, has resigned in protest from the party, amidst power sharing crisis in the state APC.
Akinlande who is a top member of the Amosun APC faction tendered his resignation in a letter to the state APC chairman.
It could not be confirmed immediately if his decision enjoys the approval of former governor Amosun who backed his defection from the APC to contest the 2019 governorship poll on the platform of the allied people movement.
His next political move is not yet known, but sources say he may be heading to the PDP faction led by Sikirullahi Ogundele.
He attributed his decision to leave the party on the refusal of the Ogun state APC to sign the power sharing formula for the party’s tickets for the 2023 polls as agreed by the various stakeholders in the party.
Akinlade said it was unfortunate that despite his loyalty and efforts to prevail on the party for fairness and justice, the APC national working committee continues to ignore his complaints and those of his supporters.
According to Akinlade, the complaints included lopsided state and local government congresses, state executive committee, the election of delegates and the last local government poll.
With all the unresolved issues, Akinlade said he could in good conscience continue to participate in a system lacking justice.
Akinlade who lost out to Governor Dapo Abiodun in the battle for the state APC governorship ticket, recently agreed to work with the state executive committee controlled by the governor.
