Musa Adamu, vice-chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi state, has resigned.
Adamu, who is the zonal vice-chairman of the ruling party in Bauchi south senatorial district, announced his resignation at a news briefing on Friday.
He said the resignation was to protect his image, honour and dignity.
Adamu said the party lacked good leadership in Bauchi and as such it would be unwise for him to remain in its state executive council.
According to him, most card carrying members of the party and the generality of sympathisers have also lost confidence in the state leadership of the APC.
“I tender my resignation as APC zonal vice-chairman Bauchi south senatorial district in view of the prevailing circumstances and political realities of present day Bauchi state APC,” he said.
He accused the party leadership of “unethical behaviours” which he said were conflicting with the political ideology and philosophy of President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, Adamu said he would remain a member of the APC.
He also expressed the hope that measures would be taken to correct the anomalies within the party in order to ensure purposeful leadership.
