A presidential aspirant of the National Conscience Party (NCP) Thomas-Wilson Ikubese has resigned from the party.

Ikubese’s resignation came on Monday in Akure the Ondo state capital where he said he is dumping the party due to its leadership’s unconstitutional acts.

According to him, the national chairman and secretary of the party were demanding N7.4 million from each aspirant, a violation of the party’s founding fathers’ vision.

“I am no longer NCP presidential aspirant due to the action of the national chairman and secretary of the party who mandated each aspirant to pay a sum of N7.4 million to secure the party’s ticket,”Ikubese added.

“This is totally contradictory to the party’s constitution which stipulates that intending candidates of the party should run without paying a dime.

“Majority are not happy with the way the party is being run. It is a total deviation from the dreams of the founding members.”
