Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senate Minority Leader has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and resigned as the Minority Leader in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

Abaribe, who was one of the top contenders for the party’s governorship ticket in Abia State, pulled out of the days to the PDP primary election in the state.

Abaribe  confirmed his exit from the PDP and as a minority leader in both the party and the Senate in separate letters to the ward chairman of the PDP in the Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State and the President of the Senate.

He cited illegality, impunity and hesitations in decision-making as the reasons for the recent development, saying his next move would be communicated at the appropriate time.

The letter reads in part, “I write to inform you of my decision to resign as a member of (the) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“This development is consequent upon the shameful display of illegality, impunity and undemocratic decision of the party and after due consultations with my constituents.”

And the other letter transmitted to the President of the Senate, Senator Lawan Ahmed,read, “Notification of Resignation from the Membership of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Senate,” read in part, “This is to notify you and my dear colleagues in the Senate that I have formally resigned my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party through my ward. This also means my resignation as (the) Minority Leader of the Senate.”

“I wish to thank you and my dear colleagues in the Leadership of the Senate for the warm camaraderie we enjoyed while I was Minority Leader.”
