PDP BoT Member, Nwosu, Resigns In Protest Against Violation Of Rotation

A member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and former Nigerian Health Minister, Professor Alphonsus Nwosu, has resigned from the party.

In a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu and the Acting BoT Chairman, Senator Adolphus Wabara, Professor Nwosu said that he is displeased with the internal wrangling in the party, resulting from what he called lack of respect for the agreement reached on political positions in the country.

According to him, the inability of the party to adhere to the rotational or zoning provision of the party’s constitution formed the basis for his resignation.

Professor Nwosu said in the letter: “I hereby resign my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party and its Board of Trustees with effect from today Thursday 12th January, 2023.

“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 rotational presidency between the North and South of Nigeria has been a long and arduous one and I have been involved.

“We must learn to respect the provisions in the constitution and the agreement reached by members of the party.

“Nigeria and the People’s 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).
