Another scenario has cropped up in the preparation for the 2023 presidential election as a popular aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential aspirant, Peter Obi, dumped the party on Wednesday.
In a letter dated May 24, 2022 to the PDP chairman, titled: “Resignation From Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Withdrawal from the Presidential Contest,” Obi stated that: “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, I am by this letter informing you of my withdrawal from 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 the country.”
It was learnt that Obi may be angry that there appears to be a gang up against his candidature.
