Former Anambra State’s governor and a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, resigned from the party on Tuesday.
Obi stated that recent developments in the PDP made it practically impossible for him to go ahead with his ambition in the party.
According to BusinessDay, he may be planning to join the Labour Party (LP) to pursue his aspiration.
Obi’s resignation was contained in a letter dated May 24, 2022 and addressed to the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, titled “Resignation from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and withdrawal from the Presidential Contest.”
In his words;
“It has been a great honour to contribute to nation-building efforts through our party. Unfortunately, recent developments within our party make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such constructive contributions.
“Our national challenges are deep-seated and require that we each make profound sacrifices towards rescuing our country. My commitment to rescuing Nigeria remains firm, even if the route differs.
“I am writing to intimate you of my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), which was conveyed to the Chairman of Agulu Ward 2. Anaocha LGA.”
