Kenneth Okonkwo, the Nollywood actor turned politician, has resigned his membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement via his Instagram page on Monday night, Okonkwo said he is leaving the APC due to the decision of the ruling party to field a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket for the 2023 elections.
Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC, on July 10, announced Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno state, as his running mate.
The development has, however, elicited mixed reactions from Nigerians.
“I just resigned my membership of the All Progressives Congress in the interest of equity, justice, fairness, and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians,” he captioned the post.
“May God deliver Nigeria from the hands of power grabbers who elevate the quest for power above the quest for purpose.
“God bless you and Barka da Sallah to our Muslim brothers.”
