Presidential hopeful, Adamu Garba has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr Garba announced his resignation from APC in a letter addressed to the party chairman in Karewa ward, Adamawa State.

The tech investor quit the presidential race after reportedly raising N83 million in donations for the purchase of the forms which cost N100 million.

On Wednesday via social media, Garba published a list of persons he said donated the money, adding that he would refund them.

Explaining the reasons for his resignation, Garba said the APC has taken “some exclusionary practices” which are against democratic tenets.

“My resignation was due to the fact that APC as a party has lost its moral bearing and has taken to some exclusionary practices which are against standard democratic tenets,” the resignation letter reads.

“More importantly, as a young man who believes in the future of Nigeria and had high hopes in APC before now, I cannot continue to retain membership of a party that favours money beyond competency, vested interest beyond common interest, chronic elitism beyond public good, politics of exclusion beyond inclusion.

“I do not, in all honesty, sincerely and with consciousness, believe that any young man in Nigeria has a future or model worthy of emulation for the benefit of Nigeria in APC. I believe the party has drifted so much from the original beliefs of its foundation to a something more cynical, undemocratic institution.

“I further believe that the party has failed in its promises to deliver public good over the years, betrayed the public trust, and has turned out to be doing much worse than what we fought so hard to dethrone in the then PDP government.

“Worst is the issue of internal security, that the party paid more attention to propaganda media statements that listening to the yearning of the people.”
