Chuma Odili resigns as ADC campaign manager – the Sun Nigeria
Dr. Harris Chuma-Odili popularly known as Ogene Igbo, a media public relations practitioner in Anambra state and previously chief advertising strategist for the CDA candidate and the campaign for governor of Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo, has resigned from active and partisan politics.
The Ogbunike-born filmmaker and journalist, who is currently the national president of the Association of Digital Media Core Advocates (ADMCA), organizers of the famous Anambra Media Excellence Awards, resigned from active politics yesterday, citing “personal reasons”.
According to the press release made available to journalists in Awka, Dr Chuma said he had “resigned from partisan politics” and “wanted to do the right thing” as a professional journalist.
“I would like to formally announce that from now on, I will play a non-partisan role in my media work. This should serve as an official statement on my resignation from partisan politics. Said Chuma.
“My decision in this regard is entirely personal to me and after having held various positions, notably as media director and general manager of the campaign organization of the governorate of Nwankpo, I decided to immerse myself in other vocations and take on new challenges.
“I have to sincerely admit that since our days in All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, and our time at the African Democratic Congress, ADC, it has been a mutually enriching relationship that I have cherished the most and a lot too”
Meanwhile, ADC candidate Akachukwu Nwankpo accepted his resignation, noting that the development would not negatively affect his chances as they were still in constant contact.
