Tom IkimiFormer Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chief Tom Ikimi has withdrawn his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State.

He announced his resignation yesterday in a statement.

The 70-year-old, whose failed bid to become the APC national chairman is at the root cause of his grievances with the party, did not say which party he was going to although it is believed the Peoples Democratic Party might be his next destination.

Ikomi said: “I am at the stage of critically re-examining the two dominant political parties in our country, which are the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), both of which I have had close working knowledge.

“I have not ignored other political parties, but in the light of the foregoing, I must search to ascertain where my true political friends exist. I need to be, at this time of my life, where I have friends who share a common vision with me and where my freedom, respect, honour and dignity would be guaranteed.

“Notwithstanding my enormous contributions in the last 12 years or so to building the alternative platform, after deep thought and wide consultations, I have made the decision to withdraw my membership from the APC from today, Wednesday August 27, 2014”.
