TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN..
I’m announcing formally here, my membership RESIGNATION from the party, APC. This decision is borne out of my private convictions and in line with my philosophy of life; doing things in accordance with my own personal estimations, faith and belief. Time was when I deployed my energy and vigorously worked for, and extensively propagated the party, PDP here in Benue State. I teamed up with my friend-Boss, Dr. Gabriel Suswam to equally anchor his re- election campaign. I came under various attacks and vilifications. I remained defiant, unruffled and stood my grounds in line with my personal life philosophy. God gave us victory.
Time was again when my personal life conviction directed my resolve to work for another of my friend; Dr. Samuel Ortom. I gave him all my support right from our days in PDP, shared, supported and identified openly with his gubernatorial ambition. When we both lost primaries; mine for House of Reps while his, for gubernatorial, he was first to leave for APC. Again my personal conviction made manifest that I should decamp to APC and give him my total support publicly; if he was going to perish in the boat as we paddle along , we should perish together. God eventually gave us victory once again. Close to three years running already in this victory however, my personal convictions and in line with my personal philosophy, faith and belief as I earlier enunciated, have once again, directed that I should quit the party, APC and to this end, I’m so doing. This much I have communicated to the 1st family of Benue state and also, the Leader of the Party in Benue state, my Boss- friend, Dr. George Akume. I have thanked them and appreciated them for their various individual and collective supports and all the remarkable moments we shared playing politics under the same platform, nothing however, nevertheless that, providence has been made manifest that we may again play politics in the opposite directions in the emerging political order.
To my adversaries, I prognosticate your reactions by submitting that, I Chief John Akperashi is entitled to my private life exclusively and equally takes solely, full responsibility of all my political decisions. Every one has his or her life to live and decisions to take. So, from what ever perspective you view One’s decision, it remains his personal decision which he is qualified and entitled to. At no point in time nevertheless have I regretted any of my political decisions borne out of my life philosophy and personal convictions. THIS TOO, I HAVE BOLDLY TAKEN AND COMMITTED TO POSTERITY. Thank you all.
