Former Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, has dumped the All Progressives Congress.
This much was contained in a letter dated April 1, 2022, and signed by Dalung on April 18, 2022.
The ex-minister who served in the first term of President Muhammadu Buhari submitted his letter of withdrawal from the APC to the Ward Chairman of the party in Sabon Gida Ward, Langtang South LGA of Plateau State.
He made it known that his withdrawal from the party is owing to the recent developments in the party, which conflict with his core principles of values which define the basis of allegiance to the party.
“This is to convey my withdrawal of membership from the All Progressives Congress with effect from the date of this notice.
“It is worthy of mention that recent developments in the party conflict with my core principles of values which define the basis of allegiance to the party.
“Of note is the fact that internal democracy is critical to the survival of representative democracy without which political participation remains a mirage,” Dalung submitted.
