The immediate past Vice Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), in Edo State, Chief Francis Inegbineki, has debunked the rumours making the rounds that he rescinded his decision to dump the party.

It would be recalled that Inegbineki who was the party’s senatorial candidate in 2015 general election, resigned from the party last week Friday.

He hinged his decision to leave the party on recent developments in the local government and the State chapter of the party.

He noted that the developments conflicts with his core principles and values, which prompted him to
do serious evaluation of his political future in Edo State and decided on the way forward.

The former APC chieftain while addressing a press conference on Monday in Benin City, warned that defection tsunami awaits the party as more members would soon dump the party.
