Kingsley Moghalu has resigned his membership of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) days after failing to pick the party’s presidential ticket.
In the resignation letter he addressed to ADC chairman, Okey Nwosu, Moghalu said he resigned from the party due to alleged corrupt practices that occurred during the party’s presidential primary election.
“I am writing to hand in my resignation of my membership of the African Democratic Congress, effective immediately.
“I have resigned because the process and conduct of the party’s presidential primary on June 8, 2022, at Abeokuta revealed a fundamental clash of values between me and your leadership of the party,” parts of Moghalu’s letter read.
He alleged that the party leadership failed to provide transportation and accommodation for party delegates as promised despite donations from him and other presidential aspirants.
“Despite the circular you issued a few days to the primary committing the party to providing transportation and accommodation for delegates to and in Abeokuta, and which as we agreed would provide a level playing field for all the presidential aspirants, the party under your leadership failed to do so.
“Some aspirants, including myself, made donations to the party’s account as requested for this purpose. This failure, which appeared intentional, created room for massive abuses of the electoral process, including delegate capture and financial inducement of delegates,” he added.
