Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State and a presidential candidate, has dropped out of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket race.

Obi’s decision was revealed in a letter published online on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.

The letter read, “I am writing to intimate you of my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which was conveyed to the Chairman of Agulu Ward 2. Anaocha LGA Anambra, effective Friday 20 May, 2022. Consequently, am by this letter informing you of my withdrawal for the PDP Presidential Primaries.

“It has been a great honour to contribute to nation-building efforts through our party. Unfortunately, recent developments within our party make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such constructive contributions.

“Our national challenges are deep-seated and require that we each make profound sacrifices towards rescuing our country. My commitment to rescuing Nigeria remains firm, even if the route differs.

“I wish to thank you personally for your graciousness and leadership. I wish you well and best of luck in the service of country.”

Obi indicated in a letter dated May 24, 2022, to PDP National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu that he had informed the Chairman of his Ward in Anambra state of his decision to withdraw from the race.

In the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar’s running partner stated recent changes inside the PDP made it hard for him to engage and make meaningful contributions to nation-building.
