Breaking News: Peter Obi Pulls out of PDP and Quits Presidential Contest

Peter Obi’s Resignation

The former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi (CON), has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) whilst also announcing his withdrawal from the frantic race for the party’s presidential ticket.
Dr. Doyin Okupe, Director General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation made this public after submitting a copy of Obi’s resignation letter to the National Secretariat of the People’s Democratic Party, Abuja, on Wednesday.
Dr. Doyin emphatically stated that his aspirant was forced to take the decision following recent happenings within the party.
Repraising a statement made by Obi, “Vote for the future of your children and not money”…
The headings of the letter as written by Peter Obi read: “Resignation From Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Withdrawal from the Presidential Contest”, was addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Sen. Iyiochia Ayu, dated May 24, 2022, he said that the party Chairman had been notified at the ward level beforehand.

He wrote, “I am writing to intimate you of my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which was conveyed to the Chairman of Agulu Ward 2. Anaocha LGA
“Anambra, effective Friday 20 May, 2022. Consequently, am by this letter informing you of my withdrawal for the PDP Presidential Primaries.
“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 wish to thank you personally for your graciousness and leadership. I wish you well and best of luck in the service of country.“
Although the presidential aspirant gave no reason for his action, our sources say that the decision of the national body to address the various concerns of his supporters in Anambra State before the party’s delegate election may be a valid reason for his pull out.
