Murtala Ajaka, the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, has resigned from his position within the party.
Ajaka, an APC governorship candidate in Kogi, did not receive the party’s nomination. He was defeated by Ahmed Ododo, the state’s former Auditor-General.
Not wanting to leave anything to chance ahead of the Kogi governorship election on November 11, the APC deputy spokesman wrote a letter to the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu.
Ajaka also resigned from his position on the National Working Committee in a letter dated May 17.
“I write to inform your good self and the National Working Committee of our great Party, the All Progressives Congress, of my decision to resign my office as Deputy National Publicity Secretary and also as a member of the NWC,” the letter began.
“This gesture is a result of my resignation from the APC, which I have already communicated in writing to the APC Chairman of Ajaka Ward 1 in Igalamela/Odolu LGA of Kogi State.”

“Kindly allow me to extol the exemplary brinkmanship, astuteness, sagacity, and political dexterity with which Your Excellency has successfully bonded the hitherto fragile fabrics of the Party, firmly enough to record the most eminent victories in the last general elections, with the support of the current National Working Committee.”
“Having proudly won the presidential election, I have every confidence that the Party, under your capable leadership, will assist the incoming administration in raising the standard of governance for the greater good of Nigerians.”
Despite the fact that he has left the APC, the Kogi politician has not indicated which party he will join next. According to reports, he is attempting to join the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in order to be elected as the party’s standard-bearer in the governorship election.
