Kenneth Okonkwo has resigned from APC over Muslim-Muslim ticket
On Monday, July 11, 2022, the seasoned Nollywood actor made the announcement in a statement he gave to the APC Chairman of Nkpunano Ward in Nsukka, Enugu State.
According to Kenneth Okonkwo , he had “joined the APC because of it’s Constitutional vow as true Progressives and Patriots, to eliminate all forms of discrimination and social injustice in Nigeria.”
He recalled how they had made sure the Chief Imam of an Army Barack Mosque was made an executive member of the Ward in order to fulfil the Party’s pledge in their ward.
“Those ideals are now alien to the APC, with their unfortunate decision to paint our Muslim brothers in bad light, by insinuating that the Muslims in Nigeria will not accept or vote for a Northern Christian as Vice-President to pair with a Southern Muslim.
“If Muslims could vote voluntarily for Southern Christian Presidents it is then a fallacy to insinuate that they cannot accept a Northern Christian Vice-President.
“This will permanently destroy the political viability of Northern Christians in Nigeria, if allowed to stand. This is in addition to their failure to protect the lives and property of Nigerians, which should be their primary responsibility. The economy is also in tatters”. The statement read in part.
