Peter Obi Dumps PDP, Pulls Out Of Presidential Race

Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra State and running mate to the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, has withdrawn from the presidential race.

Daily Trust reports that Obi, who had gone round the country to seek the support of delegates for the presidential primary, pulled out of the exercise less than 72 hours to the contest.

Reports say Obi has already submitted a letter to the chairman of his Ward in Anambra to notify him of his resignation from the party.

He has also written to the National chairman of the PDP, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, over his decision to quit the opposition party.

Commenting on the development, Doyin Okupe, Director General, Peter Obi Campaign Organisation, asked Nigerians not to give up on Obi as he would be on the ballot for the 2023 Presidential poll.
