Kassim Afegbua, ex-Edo Commissioner for Information, has expressed his dissatisfaction with former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, emerging as the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
For such reason, Afegbua respectfully quit the party and renounced his membership, being one of the staunch advocates of power rotation in the PDP.
He further explained that he declined to continue being a member of the party because of what he described as a hypocritical and manipulative process that produced Atiku and his running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, as standard-bearers of the party for the presidential election come 2023.
He wrote a letter and addressed it to the Chairman of his ward and titled it “Resignation from the PeoplesDemocraticParty.”
The party spokesperson disclosed that he has ceased to be a member of the party consequent upon his resignation.
His letter reads in part: “Let me use this medium to convey to you, my resignation from being a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ward 5, Awuyemi, Okpella.”
