BREAKING: 2023 presidential aspirant, Nnamdi Onochie dumps PDP, gives reasons

Must read

A 2023 presidential hopeful on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Orefo Nnamdi Onochie, has withdrawn his membership from the main opposition party in Nigeria.
Onochie, an ex-Nigerian envoy to Algeria and Philippines, in a statement forwarded to AFRIPOST on Tuesday, blamed his sudden decision on the alleged abandonment of Article 7.2(c) of the PDP constitution by the national leadership which provided zoning and rotation of positions and offices in the party, especially the presidential ticket among the geopolitical zones of the country.
He alleged that few elites within the PDP fold have hijacked and dominated the party and are bent and determined to destroy the former ruling party and mangled the destiny of Nigeria if their personal political ambitions and interests are not accepted, regretting that despite several statements issued to national leadership of the PDP, and also stringent effort made by his co-aspirants to forestall the jettisoning of the Article 7.2(c) as contained in the party’s constitution, the party defiled own rules.
According to him, “this situation imperils the party and Nigeria. It is in light of that situation that I have withdrawn my membership of the party”.
The presidential hopeful also stated that he shall inform Nigerians on the political party to continue and sustain his presidential ambition on, and further spoke on his primary presidential goals which include, restructuring Nigeria and prosper all its people, to reduce the cost of living in Nigeria by 32 percent in the first instance, zero corruption and zero foreign loans.
Onochie assured all Nigerians and his ardent supporters that his overriding interest is the preservation of the Nigeria’s national ethos, unity and territorial integrity and sustaining politics and voice by associating with a political party that desires to solidify the unity and prosperity for all Nigerian citizens, not those who desire to dominate sections of the country, or further divide or denigrate the nation.
“I urge you to continue to support my aspiration to be President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from May 29, 2023. Ensure that your Voters card is duly validated and vote for your conscience, not for discredited political moneybags”, the party chieftain concluded.
