Former Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has quit the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), citing lack of internal democracy in the party as part of his reasons for leaving.

Dalung tendered his resignation letter to the Ward Chairman of the APC in Sabon Gida, Langtang South Local Government Area of Plateau.

In the letter sighted by SAHELIAN TIMES, Dalung said “recent developments in the APC were in conflict with his core principles and values which defines the basis of allegiance to the party.”

“This is to convey my withdrawal of membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC) with effect from the date of this notice.”

He noted that recent development in the party conflicts with my core principles and values which define the basis of allegiance to the party.

He added that internal democracy is critical to the survival of representative democracy without which political participation remains a mirage.
