… hints of possible move to another party


Former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party. He also announced his withdrawal from the race for the party’s presidential ticket.

Director General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation, Dr. Doyin Okupe, made this public after submitting a copy of Obi’s resignation letter to the PDP National Secretariat, Abuja, on Wednesday.

Okupe noted that his aspirant took the decision following recent happenings within the party.

Obi had in the latter titled: “Resignation From Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Withdrawal from the Presidential Contest,” which he addressed to the PDP National Chairman, Sen. Iyiochia Ayu, dated May 24, 2022, said he had already notified the party Chairman at the ward level.

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 he gave no reason for his action, it was gathered that the decision of the national body to address the concerns of his supporters in Anambra State before the party’s delegate election was largely responsible.

Peter Obi is a very smart man. With PDP ditching zoning, the man has seen what's at play and is simply taking the next viable solution. Any party he goes to, we will gladly follow. grin

Is that how he will run away when faced with challenges in a very challenging country like ours? It is clear that Peter Obi has no liver.

I kept telling people this guy can't even come 2nd in primaries. Sentiments aside, Obi is only good for a VP aspirant. He doesn't have what it takes to be the Presidential aspirant of any big party. Elections are not won on Nairaland, Twitter, Facebook, or by 1 million man match.

Once Kwankwaso agrees to work with Peter Obi, I'm going to buy my own red and white cap.
You people think we are joking here.
