Wave-making PDP Presidential aspirant, Peter Obi has resigned his membership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Obi’s dumping of the PDP comes just days before the presidential primary elections of the party.
Peter Obi was one of the leading presidential aspirants of the PDP alongside former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, former Senate President Bukola Saraki, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal.
The Director-General, Peter Obi Campaign Organisation Doyin Okupe however insisted in an interview on Tuesday that the former Anambra State governor will be on the ballot for the 2023 presidential election.
Peter Obi was a running mate to fellow presidential aspirant Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 general elections.
Obi reportedly submitted his resignation letter to the chairman of his Ward in Anambra to notify him of his decision to quit the party.
He also wrote to the National Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, over his decision to quit the PDP. He did not, however, state the reasons for his decision.
He also did not indicate his next move.
