Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has resigned from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The actor who tendered his resignation letter to the chairman of Nkpunano Ward, Nsukka, Enugu State due to the recent development in the party.
According to him, he resigned from the ruling party following the decision to have a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 election.
Recall that the Presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu announced former Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima as his running mate which has created a lot of rancour from the Christian community.
The actor took to his Instagram page where he shared his resignation letter with the public.
Part of the letter reads:
“Those ideals are now alien to the APC with their unfortunate decision to paint our Muslim brothers in bad light by insinuating that the Muslims in Nigeria will not accept to vote for a Northern Christian as Vice President to pair with Southern Muslim….
“If Muslims could voluntarily vote for southern presidents, it is then a fallacy to insinuate that they cannot accept a northern Christian vice president.
“This will permanently destroy the political viability of Northern Christians in Nigeria if allowed to stand.
“This is in addition to the failure to protect the lives and properties of Nigerians, which should be their primary responsibility.
“The country is also in shatters.”
