Going further, Oni said he was not accorded his rightful position and respect as a former APC deputy national chairman.
He also faulted the way and manner he was suspended from the party's leadership.
Tribune reports that he said he would not be pulling out of the party until the second half of the year after he must have had consulted widely with some leaders within the APC, adding, however, that “we have taken the final decision to leave the party.

Also, Legit.ng had reported that members of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) from the south-south zone have declared support for the embattled party national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
This was contained in a resolution by the group after they met in Abuja on Sunday, March 15.
The deputy Senate president and leader of the APC in the south-south, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was part of the meeting.
Some of the resolutions reached at the meeting were:
1. That the national chairman of our great party, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has done very well in the administration of the affairs of our great party.
2. That we cannot allow ourselves to be used as agents of destabilization of our party we have laboured so hard to build.
3. That under the leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, we won the just concluded presidential elections, won majority of the seats in the National Assembly, and also won governorship elections in most states of the federation.
Those who signed the resolution includes the national vice-chairman south of the party; Hilliard Eta, deputy national legal adviser; Barr. E.I Adoh-Ogbuta, zonal women leader; Mrs Racheal Akpabio, deputy national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena and zonal youth leader; Gabriel Iduesiri.
