Former Commissioner of Transportation in Rivers State, George Fubara has joined the growing list of All Progressives Congress, APC members in Rivers State rescinding their membership of the party.
Fubara’s resignation which was announced on Monday, further swells the list of former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi’s allies that have dumped the party.
Within the last two weeks, Ibim Semintinari, a former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Prince Tonye Wilson and Dr Dawari George, all close allies of Amaechi, announced their exit from the APC.
Announcing his resignation from the party in a letter addressed to the Chairman, APC Ward 12, Bonny Local Government Area, Fubara hinged his decision on worsening insecurity, corruption and injustice bedevilling the country.
“Joining the APC was based on personal conviction, but having reviewed the general state of affairs of the APC-led government in the country, I’m no longer convinced of my continued stay in the party.
“The APC came on the mantra of anti corruption, justice, equity and insecurty. But today that hope is dashed as insecurity, corruption and injustice stare us squarely in the face and threaten the very existence of our beloved country.
“To my dear leaders and die hard party faithfuls in Bonny who see meas a role model and a loyal party man, I’m sorry to disappoint you by my decision. I guess I’m human after all, forgive me,” part of his letter read.
