The National Women Leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Mrs. Ada-Orji Nwanyanwu, has defected to the Labour Party.
In her letter of resignation, it says she was joining the LP to work for the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to emerge the next president of the country.
The female politician said the support the ex-governor of Anambra state was getting had shown that he was the best candidate to succeed the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in 2023.
The letter of resignation read, “As I resign today from APGA and relinquish my position as the National Women Leader, I would like to use this opportunity to thank you for your fraternity and cooperation. It’s been an honor working with all of you for the growth and welfare of the party. My capacity to serve in the National Working Committee as the National Women Leader was so enriching and I thank you for your support.
As God may have it, all the political parties in Nigeria have concluded their presidential primary elections and various candidates have emerged. Equally, they have all been assessed by Nigerians, those in diaspora and the international communities, and it has been determined that the best, most credible and most qualified amongst them, who has the exceptional ability to rescue and fix the failed economy of broken Nigeria is Mr. Peter Obi.
Today, I voluntarily chose to resign from APGA and to relinquish my position to join this movement to contribute in the best way I possibly could. I would like you to remember that it is our collective responsibility to rescue Nigeria from total collapse, irrespective of our affiliations.”
