ADC youth leader leaves party with over 50,000 supporters

Barr. Maurice Ebam, the national youth leader of the African Democratic Congress, resigned his membership on Thursday along with about 50,000 other supporters.

Ebam’s departure comes approximately three weeks after Kingsley Moghalu, the party’s presidential candidate, left the organization over alleged irregularities in the Abeokuta primary elections.

Ebam claimed that the party had served as a training ground for him in a letter addressed to the national chairman of the party.

The letter read, “The ADC DNA is in my system. ADC has been a learning school for me. I did not just serve; I also learnt. It is a platform that has given opportunities to young people who are willing and I was given an opportunity to serve. It is clearly documented and posterity bears witness.

“It is with mixed feelings that I resign my membership of ADC. While serving both as a member and youth leader, I sacrificed my time and resources, and even put my career on the hold willingly and selflessly for the cause of nation-building with ADC as the platform. Now it’s time to contribute to nation-building, albeit on another platform.”

Ebam announced that he would leave the party with his foot soldiers and pledged to offer pertinent help.

“I have gathered over 50,000 passionate, organic and dedicated grassroot youths that will be moving with me following my consultation with youths from diverse strata, and various youth movements, and we have all unanimously concluded that decamping from ADC is the best option at this time.

“This is not a goodbye letter, as I will be available to render assistance to the best of my ability when beckoned on. Please, accept the assurance of my best wishes,” Ebam added.
