The secretary of the National Convention Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, has resigned from the position with immediate effect.
This was confirmed in a statement signed by his principal secretary, Godson Amadikwa.
He tendered his resignation letter to the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee on Friday night.
Amadikwa said the decision to resign from the committee was taken for personal reasons and also to advance the progress of APC in Imo State.
Senator Uwajumogu is one of the people fighting Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, over control of the party’s structure in the state.
While thanking the National Chairman and the NWC for the uncommon privilege given to him to serve within this period, Uwajumogu expressed appreciation to all who stood by him during his tenure.
The statement said the National Chairman has accepted the resignation, while wishing the senator well in his legislative duties.
