Abaribe Dumps PDP, Resigns As Senate Minority Leader by Nemere2020: 11:57am On May 27
Senate Minority Leader and governorship aspirant in Abia State, Enyinnaya Abaribe, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party and resigned as the Minority Leader in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

Abaribe, who was one of the top contenders for the party’s governorship ticket in Abia State, pulled out of the primary about 78 hours earlier.

He confirmed his exit from the PDP and as a minority leader in both the party and the Senate in separate letters to the ward chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State and the President of the Senate in the National Assembly.

Abaribe cited reasons of illegality, impunity and hesitations in decision-making for his decision to dump the party.

He said his next move would be communicated at the appropriate time.

A letter seen by The PUNCH and addressed to the party’s ward Chairman, titled “Resignation of my membership from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,” read in part, “I write to inform you of my decision to resign as a member of (the) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“This development is consequent upon the shameful display of illegality, impunity and undemocratic decision of the party and after due consultations with my constituents.”

On his resignation as a member of the party in the upper chamber of the national assembly and the minority leader in the senate addressed to the President of the Senate, Senator Lawan Ahmed, the letter titled, “Notification of Resignation from the Membership of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Senate,” read in part, “This is to notify you and my dear colleagues in the Senate that I have formally resigned my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party through my ward. This also means my resignation as (the) Minority Leader of the Senate.”

“I wish to thank you and my dear colleagues in the Leadership of the Senate for the warm camaraderie we enjoyed while I was Minority Leader.”

PDP is dead and buried. Peter Obi is a movement. Nigeria should not miss this opportunity to elect competent Peter Obi as the president

Why are this people always run away from contest, they just want to be placate and fed like a baby. Politics is not for the lillyliver who are even afraid to contest against his own people in the same region. Is that the type of people that would compete with other Nigerians?

No wonder they stayed put in a ready made PDP and are so blind to see the party is already in extinct mode

Is it now Alaigbo wants to wake up? cheesy cheesy.

From 1999 till date, what has PDP done for their region to deserve this bonding loyalty? or it is just to satisfy their hatred against APC,,Buhari or Tinubu?

You people allege the country hasn't been fair to you. How about PDP showed the way by rewarding your years of hard work for it?

This is politics, no one gives a flying fvck your sob stories. Your son doesn't own a car, you wear one watch all your life,same clothes all the time, blah blah, blehh. GTFO clown. grin

You people want to hold us ransom abi. We can't vote for igbo under duress. They should contest against other tribe to emerge..

Good move. The party is being controlled by forces hell bent on foisting puppets who would do their biddings in the South. Any independent minded politician in the South should leave the PDP. The North thinks they are wise.

Wike agberoism has killed PDP...

What Ahmodu Sheriff couldn't do, this incompetent Iyorchia Ayu has executed effortlessly.

How can a sensible party chairman sit by and tolerate Wike's tactlessness?
