A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi has formally dumped the party.
The former governor of Anambra state made this known in a letter written to the National Chairman of the PDO, Senator Iyorchia Ayu.
He said he has also conveyed the same letter to the chairman of his Agulu ward two, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra state.
In the letter titled; ‘Resignation from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Withdrawal From the Presidential Contest’, Obi thanked his former party.
He, however, hinted at joining another party.
“I am writing to intimate you of my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party 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 toward rescuing our country.
My commitment to rescuing Nigeria remains firm, even if the route differs.”
