The Rivers State Deputy Governorship candidate of African Action Congress,  Akpo Bomba Yeeh, AAC, has tendered his letter of resignation from the party and defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

In the resignation he personally signed and addressed to the AAC Governorship candidate, Biokpomabo Awara dated March 25, 2019, Yeeh said his resignation from the membership of AAC takes effect from today, Monday,  25th March 2019.

He said with the decision, he ceases to be the Deputy Governorship Candidate of AAC, for the 2019 Governorship Election in Rivers State.

Stating further the reason for his decision , Akpo Bomba Yeeh, said,  “My decisions were informed by the complete hijack of the structure and administration of our Party by a faction of the APC in Rivers State led by the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, for his personal political ambition.

He also alleged that the Rotimi Amaechi led faction of the APC is working to subvert the will of Rivers people and cause crisis in the State using the platform of AAC.

According to him,”In the circumstance, I cannot in all conscience continue to lend support to the selfish political venture of the Minister of Transportation, which does not mean well for the progress and development of the people of Rivers State.

The Deputy Governorship further cautioned the AAC Governorship candidate, Biokpomabo Awara, to accept to accept the reality of his crushing defeat in the election and liberate himself from allegedly being used by Rotimi Amaechi to cause unnecessary political crisis in our dear State

It is worthy of note that  the Deputy Governorship candidate could not remember the real name of his party but called it “African Action Alliance (AAA)” in his opening paragraph of his resignation letter instead of “African Action Congress” (AAC).

It would be recalled 48 hours to the Governorship election in Rivers state, All Progressives Congress adopted AAC candidate, Biokpomabo Awara and his Deputy as its candidate.

Meanwhile, a human rights activist  Omenazu Jackson led a group of persons on a peaceful protest to the Port Harcourt office of Department of State Services, DSS to demand that redeployment of Mr Obo, the Rivers Resident Electoral Commission over allegation of bias.

The group warned that any further breakdown of law and order in state should be blamed on the national leadership of INEC if it goes ahead with the Collation of the remaining election results.

Dear Sir,

NOTICE OF RESIGNATION OF MEMBERSHIP OF THE AFRICAN ACTION CONGRESS

I write to most respectfully notify of my resignation from the membership of the African Action Alliance (AAC) with effect from today 25th March 2019 and subsequent defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Please note also that by this notice, I cease to be the Deputy Governorship Candidate of our Party, the AAC, for the 2019 Governorship Election in Rivers State.

My decisions were informed by the complete hijack of the structure and administration of our Party by a faction of the APC in Rivers State led by the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, for his personal political ambition.

Furthermore, the Rotimi Amaechi led faction of the APC is not letting in its determination to subvert the will of Rivers people and cause crisis in the State using the platform of our promising Party.

In the circumstance, I cannot in all conscience continue to lend support to the selfish political venture of the Minister of Transportation, which does not mean well for the progress and development of the people of Rivers State.

As a budding and promising politician, I also appeal to you to accept the reality of your crushing defeat and liberate yourself from being used by Rotimi Amaechi to cause unnecessary political crisis in our dear State.

Thank you very much and please accept the assurances of my highest regards as always.

Signed
