Popular PDP cheiftain, who serves as the Northeast zonal treasurer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Galadima Abba Itas has tendered his resignation letter from the party effective Tuesday, 12th July.
In a letter tendered to the ward chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Itas Ward in Itas/Gadau Local Government Area of Bauchi State, he noted that after wide consultation from his teeming supporters, he is resigning in protest to the unfair and unjust treatment of the governor of Rivers State, his excellency Gov. Nyesome Wike before and after the PDP presidential primaries.
The letter reads in part, “I write to tender my resignation as Zonal Treasurer (North-East) and a member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”
“My resignation was as a result of wide consultations with my teeming supporters, political associates and in response to the unfair and unjust treatment extended to His Excellency, Barr Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, the Executive Governor of Rivers State during and after the presidential primary convention.”
“Equally, the unorthodox selection of His Excellency, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate to the presidential candidate contradicts my political principles and ideologies, hence further consolidated my resignation decision.”
“As a critical stakeholder, unjust and unfair treating of founding members posed a great threat to the collective political interest of our leaders and us, thereby necessitating my resignation in protest of the ways things are unfolding in the Party.”
Abba reiterated that he lacks confidence in the party as he sees that the party is not ready to regain power come 2023.
He said, “However, the present situation in the party does not inspire confidence that the party is ready to regain power in 2023. I appreciate the opportunity handed to me to serve with passion and dedication. Kindly, accept my sincere and warm regards.”
