Former Minister of Niger Delta, Godsday Orubebe, has resigned his membership from the Peoples Democratic Party.
This was made known in a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the party, lyorchia Ayu, on Monday. In a copy of his resignation letter obtained by our correspondent, the former minister expressed dismay over the emergence of a northerner, Atiku Abubakar, as the party’s presidential candidate.
“I write to formally inform you of my resignation from the PDP. This, I have communicated to the Chairman of Burutu Ward 3, Burutu Local Govemment Area, Delta State, effective 20th June 2022. “I salute and commend the Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Nyesom Wike for his efforts and gallantry at the primaries. Posterity will be kind to him when the history of the party is written. “There are lots to be said, but out of respect for the party, I leave some stories untold at this time. My belief in the sanctity of Nigeria is unshaken and I will continually work for her progress and development even if it’s through another route.” Part of the letter read.
