Former Federal Minister of Health, Professor A.B.C. Nwosu has resigned from his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its Board of Trustees (BOT).
Gatekeepers News reports that Nwosu announced his resignation in a letter he addressed to the National Chairman of the party, Iyiorcha Ayu on Thursday.
He noted that his resignation “is a matter of CONSCIENCE and PRINCIPLE because of the Party’s inability to adhere to the ROTATION provision in its (POP) 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.
“Nigeria and the Peoples 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).”
Nwosu was a founding member of the party and played significant roles in the affairs of the party at the National and Zonal levels.
