Former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola has officially resigned from All Progressives Congress.

Oyinlola, the former secretary of the broke-away new Peoples Democratic Party who joined the All Progressives Congress prior to 2014 Osun governorship election in Osun State made his resignation known today in a letter he directed to the APC chairman in in Okuku ward.

He said his action was based on his efforts to contribute to the repositioning of Nigeria that is ongoing.

The letter reads in part, “My resignation from the APC, therefore, is to enable me contribute more meaningfully to ongoing efforts at repositioning the politics of Nigeria for the good of the Nigerian people,” he said.

Oyinlola had indicated his intention to leave APC at the formal launch of CNM when he spoke about the perceived conflict of interest between his new task and his chairmanship of NIMC board.

Oyinlola had said the both the APC and the PDP have failed and have not been able to meet the aspirations of Nigerians, noting that CNM would mobilise young Nigerians to take over power from the ruling party.

The former governor added that “We are trying to be like guardian angels; it is you that must decide who is to do what and at what level. That is why we are having this meeting today and putting it back to you.”
