Chief Tom Ikimi

One of the top notchers of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Tom Ikimi, has quit the party.

He announced his decision to resign from the party on Tuesday in a statement.

Ikimi, who was the former National Chairman of the defunct National Republican Convention (NRC) in the aborted Third Republic was however silent on the name of the political party he is joining.

He was one of the chairmanship aspirants of the APC when the party held its National Convention in June this year.

Ikimi was reportedly forced to step down for a former Governor of Edo State, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, who eventually emerged as the first National chairman of the APC.

Ikimi is also from Edo State.

He had last week complained that he had been sidelined in the scheme of things in the party.

He said: “I have made the decision to withdraw my membership from the All Progressives Congress from today, 26th August 2014”.
