A former Commissioner for Agriculture in Ondo State, Olusegun Aiyerin, has announced his resignation from the All Progressives Congress ahead of the forthcoming general elections.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that, Aiyerin announced his resignation in a letter addressed to the APC chairman in llutitun Ward 1 on Tuesday.
According to the two-term chairman of Okitipupa Local Government Area, the party rewarded indolence while being indifferent to hard work.
The letter read, “I, Pastor Olusegun Aiyerin hereby resign my membership of APC with immediate effect after due consultation with members of my family, my ardent followers and supporters.
“It is to be recalled that upon overtures from Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, a few governors and one Honourable Minister, I resigned as the serving Commissioner for Agriculture, Ondo State to join APC in 2016.
“Having taken stock of my active participation in and contribution to elections culminating in victories that birthed the present administration, subsequent elections as well as my personal sacrifices.
“I have come to a finite and final conclusion that the reward mechanism of the party is tainted with a lot of indifference to hard work and performance while encouraging reward for indolence.
“It will therefore be comical to continue to delude myself and my faithful followers that all is well.
“Thanking the party through you for the opportunity to make our humble strides in the area of contributing towards the development of the party while it lasted.
“Wishing you the best of luck; and do accept my warmest regards.”
