“Mr. Chairman, with my many years of active participation in politics and as a former party administrator, an elected official into many political offices, I have come to this conclusion for many reasons, chiefly among which are the absence of Unity of purpose among party members and stakeholders occasioned by internal conflicts, unending litigations, internal threats and counter threats of anti-party activities, lack of genuine reconciliation coupled with lack of commitments and dedications to the success of the party by many stakeholders. For these obvious reasons, I concluded that I can not continue to be a member of the party.
“Mr. Chairman, by this resignation, I cease to be a member of the Presidential Campaign Council, Assistant Secretary of the North Central Directorate of Mobilization and all organs and committees of the party.
