ACN spokesman quits party in Rivers

11 June 2013, 07:34

Port Harcourt - The publicity secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Rivers, Jerry Needam, has quit the party.

Needam said in a statement in Port Harcourt that his resignation took effect from today.

"From today, Monday, June 10, 2013, I ceased to be a member of the Action Congress of Nigeria.

"By my resignation from the party, I also ceased to be the Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Rivers chapter,’’ the statement said.

He said that he quit because of attempts to use the Acting State Chairman of the party to desecrate the principles of the party.

"Besides giving my reasons for resigning, my membership of the ACN on principle, I wish to note that the resignation of our state leader, Dr Abiye Sekibo, whose view and ideologies I share in, also contributed to my action.

"There is no point retaining my membership of the ACN, when he has already dumped the party," the statement said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Sekibo, a former minister of Transport and governorship candidate of ACN in the 2011 election, quit the party on June 5.
