APC Publicity Secretary Resigns

The Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Benue State Chapter, Agbo Terkula, has resigned both his membership of the party and the position he occupied.

In a letter of resignation, dated Wednesday, July, 2018, addressed to the state chairman of the party, Terkula claimed the APC controlled federal government did not represent the interests and yearnings of the people of the state.

“The APC which controls the government at the centre does not represent the yearnings and aspirations of the people of Benue State.”

He regretted the unprovoked killings of rural farmers by herdsmen and the displacement of farmlands and the plight of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the state.

He added that some of the reckless comments by top political appointees of the federal government had exacerbated the killings.

Terkula claimed overtures had been made to him not to resign his membership of the party but stated that to remain in the party would amount to “trading his life and conscience and the future of the state”.
