Adamu Garba, a controversial politician and an aspirant to the presidency of Nigeria has announced on Twitter his decision to end relations with the All Progressives Congress (APC) party. Also announced the resignation in a letter addressed to the party chairman in Karewa Ward, Adamawa state. Garba made the news mere hours after he had declared his disinterest in purchasing an N100m nomination form, despite having accrued over N83m in donations.
Expantiating on his decision, Garba explained that he left because APC had taken “some exclusionary practices” which he felt went against democratic tenets. He said that APC as a party had lost its moral bearing and as a young man who believed firmly in the future of Nigeria he could not continue remaining a member of a party that “favors money beyond competency, vested interest beyond common interest, chronic elitism beyond public good, politics of exclusion beyond inclusion.”
He concluded by stating that he believed that the APC party had failed its many promises over the years and that they paid more attention to propaganda media statements than actually listening to the voices of the people. Garba furthermore published a list of persons on his social media handles whom he claimed had donated the N83m and asked them to highlight their details and send payment evidence to him if they wished to be refunded.
