Former governor of Anambra state and Presidential Aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi has withdrawn from the contest and resigned his membership of the party.
In a letter dated May 24, 2022 and addressed to the National Chairman of the PDP, Obi said recent developments within the party made it practically impossible to continue participating and making constructive contributions.
He said the challenges facing the country are deep-seated and require that profound sacrifices are made to rescue the country.
He added that his commitment to rescuing Nigeria remains firm, even if the route differs.
The letter read: “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 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.”
