He refused to give reasons for dumping the party.”I am not one to go public with the reasons for my resigning from APC, just as I did not give anyone reasons for joining the party. However,all I can say is encapsulated in the words of a 17th century poet and dramatist, John Dryden.

“Must I at length the Sword of Justice draw? Oh curst Effects of necessary law! How all my fear they by my, Mercy Scam, Beware the fury of patient man”.

But APC through its Assistant Publicity Secretary, Darlington Nwauju, had stated yesterday that it got the hint of Finebone leaving the party about two months ago.

He said this was because the former APC spokesperson did not want to shoulder the moral burden of leading an onslaught against Fubara his kinsman who is the PDP governorship candidate.

Finebone has no doubt left another big hole in Political structure of APC.

Less than two days before he left, APC, he had as always, taken Wike to the cleaners, slamming the Governor for dancing “Kokomo” in viral video at the time scores of children were dying of an outbreak of Measles in Communities in Abua-Odua local government area of the State.
