Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo, has dumped the All Progressive Congress (APC) following the decision to have a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidential election.
Okonkwo tendered his letter of resignation to the Chairman of Nkpunano Ward, Nsukka, Enugu State.
Recall that the presidential candidate of the rulling party for the 2023 election, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had on Sunday in Daura, Katsina State announced former Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima as his running mate.
Tinubu and Shettima are both Muslims.
In his resignation letter, Okonkwo reminded the APC that he joined it when he saw it as a vehicle to fight against injustice.
The former governorship aspirant said: “I just resigned my membership of the All Progressives Congress in the interest of equity, justice, fairness and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.
May God deliver Nigeria from the hands of power grabbers who elevate the quest for power above the quest for purpose.
“God bless you and Barka da Sallah to our Muslim brothers”
