“It is with reservation that I resign my membership of the People’s Democratic Party which I had the privilege of being a foundation member at it’s inception in 1998. Reason being that those ideals that attracted me to the party have since receded into oblivion leaving me with no option than to leave and find another party that will afford me with ample opportunity to operate maximally and contribute to national development.
I am therefore wishing you all well as you continue to work hard to eke out a living in the best way possible under the present circumstances”.
