“Let me commence by thanking profusely, the Executive Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, the Party State Chairman, Engr. Ade Adetimehin and other big guns who are piloting the affairs of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the Sunshine State, for the honour and privilege to be a member.
“After carefully musing and given to introspection on my exit from the APC, the afterglow gave me further impetus to tender my resignation letter as a bonafide member of our great party effective from 12th July 2022 and for proper documentation in line with the party guideline and as enshrined in the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria."

Speaking further, the aspirant noted that:

“It is imperative to state that the party has not only failed to live up to the yearning and expectations of members, but it also failed to give room for capacious inclusiveness. Unequivocally, the conundrum is bottom-up.
“Be that as it may be, after due consultation with my God, my family, my supporters and the Nigerian people whom I meet in all walks of life, I, Adeyeri Stephen Kunle, hereby tender my resignation letter as a member of All Progressives Congress ( APC ) while I take time to ponder my future.
“In addition am not only leaving the party alone, being a pilot of my loyalist men all my men are going with me.”
