PDP BOT member, Alphonsus Nwosu dumps party over zoning

Jan 13, 2023

Alphonsus Nwosu, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees has resigned. 


In a letter dated January 12, 2023, and addressed to the national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, and the acting chairman of the BoT, Adolphus Wabara, Nwosu blamed his decision on the party’s failure to respect its power rotation/ zoning principle as the reason for his action.


Nwosu, who served as Minister of Health during the administration of Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo administration from 1999-2007, stated that PDP must learn to members must learn to respect the provisions in its constitution and the agreement reached by members of the party.


The letter read; 


“I hereby resign my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party and its Board of Trustees with effect from today Thursday 12th January, 2023.

“This resignation for me is a matter of conscience and principle because of the Party’s inability to adhere to the rotation provision in its (PDP) 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.”
