Ahead of the 2023 general election, a former Commissioner for Agriculture in Ondo State, Pastor Olusegun Aiyerin has announced his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Aiyerin, a two-term chairman of Okitipupa Local Government, announced his resignation in a letter addressed to the chairman of APC in llutitun Ward 1 on Tuesday.
He said the ruling APC in the State was encouraging indolence, while abandoning hard work.
“I, Pastor Olusegun Aiyerin, hereby resign my membership of APC with immediate effect after due consultation with members of my family, my ardent followers and supporters.
“It is to be recalled that upon overtures from Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, a few governors and one Honourable Minister, I resigned as the serving Commissioner for Agriculture, Ondo State, to join APC in 2016.
“Having taken stock of my active participation in and contribution to elections culminating in victories that birthed the present administration, subsequent elections, as well as my personal sacrifices, I have come to a finite and final conclusion that the reward mechanism of the party is tainted with a lot of indifference to hard work and performance while encouraging reward for indolence,” he said.
