In his letter, Ukwuenya simply said the reason behind his decision to dump the party was ‘best known’ to him.He thanked the party for giving him the opportunity to serve and wished them good luck ahead of the general election.
Although Ukwuenya has refused to explain the reason behind his sudden resignation, sources within the camp of the APC explained that his decision might not be unconnected with his cold war with the state chairman, Comrade Abba Yaro.
When contacted, the state Publicity Director of the party, Apeh Peter said, “If he has resigned, then so be it. As a matter of fact, I am just hearing that from you. But if he actually resigned, then good luck to him. There is nothing special about his resignation.”
