Mr Igo Aguma, former Acting All Progressives Congress (APC)Chairman in Rivers, has announced his exit from the party.
Aguma said this in a statement on Friday in Port Harcourt.
But the Supreme Court in Abuja dismissed his appeal on Friday.
He acknowledged receipt of the Supreme Court judgment which dismissed his case.
“It is now clear that it is not within the purview of the Court to protect the rights and privileges of members of a political party, in this case, the APC.
“It is the APC that should protect the rights of her members but has failed to do so.
Aguma added:“Therefore, I announce my exit from the All Progressives Congress immediately. To God be the glory,” he said.
In his reaction, Secretary of the state APC Caretaker Committee, Mr Baridor Badom said that Aguma’s exit was good for the party.
“We now know faithful party members to work with, to consolidate in planning and putting together a more strong and formidable APC in Rivers.
“We are glad that Mr Igo Aguma has finally taken this step in leaving the party; we wish him well in his future political endeavours,” he said.(NAN)
