Peter Obi Resigns from PDP and enters a new party (labour party) to continue his Presidential race. The reasons why he resigned was also mentioned. To confirm this news, Mr Peter Obi equally made it open on social Media.

Barely 72 hours before the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Convention, the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi resigned his membership of the party.

Prior to his resignation Obi was running to become the President of Nigeria on the platform of the PDP.

Mr Obi confirmed his exit on Wednesday evening, saying he caught wind of a gang up against him.
He did not immediately disclose his next platform.

The development is expected to put additional spotlight on the PDP’s primaries scheduled to be held in Abuja this weekend, where Mr Obi was initially seen as a front runner in a race that includes Atiku Abubakar, Nyesom Wike, Dele Momodu, Bukola Saraki and other bigwigs.

A spokesman for the PDP did not immediately return a request seeking comments.

A source familiar with the development said Mr Obi feared he might not do well at the convention, despite his widespread popularity and fame amongst everyday Nigerians.

In a letter to the party chairman, Mr Obi appreciated his membership and left open future collaboration in service to the country.
