The North-East zonal treasurer of the Peoples Democratic Party, Hon. Galadima Abba has resigned from his position over what he described as the unfair treatment of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike by the party.
He also said he is quitting the PDP over how Wike was treated by the party leaders during and after the presidential primaries won by Atiku Abubakar.
His letter of resignation was addressed to the Ward Chairman, Itas Gadau Local Government Area, Bauchi State on Tuesday.
According to him, the emergence of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as the vice-presidential candidate of the PDP for the 2023 election is not according to the principles and ideologies of the party.
He added that recent activities show that PDP is not ready to reclaim power in 2023.
The letter reads in part: “I write to tender my resignation as zonal treasurer (North-east) and a member of People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) My resignation was as a result of wide consultations with my teaming 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.
“As a critical stakeholder, unjust and unfair treatment 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.”
