Peter Obi withdraws from Presidential race, dumps PDP

According to Obi, “Happenings” within the party currently do not give him the space to fully express himself.

Former governor of Anambra and PDP Presidential aspirant, Mr Peter Obi, has announced his withdrawal from the 2023 presidential race.

The aspirant also announced his decision to dump the PDP.

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

According to Obi, “Happenings” within the party currently do not give him the space to fully express himself.

The letter sighted by Persecondnews reads: “I am writing to intimate you of my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which was convened to the Chairman of Agulu Ward 2, Anaocha LGA, Anambra State, 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 pleasure to contribute to the nation-building efforts through our party. Unfortunately, recent developments within our party make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such 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.”
