There seems to be no end in sight to the defection crisis that has hit the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) as its Publicity secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, has left the party.
Abdullahi, in a statement issued on Wednesday, tendered his resignation to the party leadership.
He tweeted on his unverified Twitter handle @BolajiAbdullahi, saying:
“In view of recent political developments in the country and within the All Progressives Congress (APC), I have decided to resign my position as the National Publicity Secretary as well as my membership of the party with effect from today.
“In the last few days, I have had to endure the flagrant usurpation of my role as the spokesman of the party in a manner that I consider unbefitting of a ruling party and inconsistent with my ethical standards.
“I have served the APC honestly and to the best of my ability and when I stood for and won my election at the last convention, it was a keen desire to continue to do so.
“However, in a situation whereby my loyalty is constantly brought into question; my subordinates deployed to subvert my office; and my views constantly second-guessed on the basis of my political affiliation, it has become imperative for me to review my position.”
Abdullahi is one of few who have shown their loyalty to Senate president, Bukola Saraki.
He left his position in the government of former president Goodluck Jonathan to join Saraki in the APC when the leader of the senate crossed over to apc from pdp
