IgbereTV reports that Hon. Austin Nwachukwu, the Special Adviser to the Governor of Imo State on National Assembly matters and ecological projects, has resigned as both a special adviser and a member of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
In a resignation letter dated 11/11/202.m. to his APC Ikpe-Nsu ward chairman in Ehime Mbano LGA, he expressed his displeasure with both the State and Federal governments, both of which are controlled by the APC, stating that neither can guarantee the future of the youth. As a result, he stated that he does not want to be associated with those who massacred the Igbo youths.
Between 2007 and 2011, Austin Nwachukwu served in the Federal House of Representatives, representing the Okigwe South Federal constituency, which included Ehime Mbano, Ihitte Uboma, and Obowo local government areas.
His resignation letter read;
“The APC Chairman, Ikpe-Nsu Ward Ehime Mbano LGA Imo State.
RESIGNATION OF MY MEMBERSHIP OF ALL PROGRESSIVE CONGRESS (APC)
With utmost humility, I wish to write you about my decision to resign as a member of APC henceforth. After due consultations with my family and political Allies, I have come to the realization that it will serve no meaningful political interest to remain in APC for a day longer. It will therefore, amount to political suicide for me, a former member of the National Assembly to continue to follow a political pathway that will define my political doom with no foreseeable political advantage in terms of infrastructural development and empowerment of my people.
It is no longer a secret that the current political reality in Imo State and by Extension Nigeria cannot guarantee the future of our teeming youths. And I do not want to be counted as one of those who supported the regime that emasculated and destroyed the future of our youths.
I therefore, tender my resignation as a member of APC from today
I remain so thankful for your understanding and cooperation, and please accept the assurances of my highest regards as always.
Hon. Austin Nwachukwu.
Cc: APC Chairman Imo State”
