A former federal Minister of Health, Professor A.B.C. Nwosu has resigned as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its Board of Trustees (BOT).
In letter he personally signed, Nwosu said that his resignation takes effect from January 12.
The letter was addressed to the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, dated January 12, 2023.
He was a founding member of the party and played significant roles in the affairs of the party at the National and Zonal levels.
His reason for resigning is non adherence to the principle of rotation by the PDP.
“This resignation for me is a matter of CONSCIENCE and PRINCIPLE because of the party’s inability to adhere to the ROTATION provision in its (PDP) Constitution.
”The journey to the rotational presidency between the North and South of Nigeria has been a long and arduous one, and I have been involved. Nigeria and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must learn to keep to an agreement reached by a Constituent Assembly (1995) and enshrined in the party’s (PDP) Constitution (1998),” he said in the resignation letter.
