In his letter of resignation addressed to the National Chairman of the Party, dated July 24, Okonkwo stressed that his decision was final.
He said he had equally written to his ward chairman in Ogidi, Idemili North local government area of Anambra State.
Okonkwo, who was one of the 16 governorship aspirants that contested the June 26, 2021 primary of the Party had earlier accused the party of non level play ground for contestants as some aspirants were unduly favoured.
