Why I didn’t inform Atiku before leaving PDP, by Obi

The presidential candidate of Labour Party for the 2023 general elections, Mr. Peter Obi, has explained why he did not inform his former vice president Atiku Abubakar before resigning his membership of  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Obi, Atiku’srunningmate in the 2019 presidential election, was an aspirant for the PDP’sticketforthe2023presidential alongside the former vice president and others before he defected to the Labour Party and emerged its presidentialstandard-bearer.


The former vice president, who is the presidential candidateof thePDP, claimed in an interview on Friday that he was not aware of the departure of his former running until three days after he declared for Labour Party. “I didn’t know Peter Obi left PDP. He informed me three days later he declared for Labour Party.

So he didn’t even consult me,” he said. He also said that “it will take a miracle for Labour Party with no structure in the grassroots to win the presidency,” he said, adding: “In the North, 90 per cent of our people are not in tune to social media.”

But speaking yesterday on Channels Television Programme, Politics Today, Obi said his decision to leave the  main opposition party was personal. He disclosed that he did not also inform some membersof hisfamilybefore taking the decision.

His words: “Yes, it is true that I didn’t inform Atiku Abubakar before leaving PDP. The first thing is that Atiku remains my special elder brother. When I left the PDP I did not tell him as well as other respected people in my life, including my family. “There is a time in your life that you take a decision, which you consider appropriate for your own future.


You just have to do it and you don’t want people to talk you out of it, and this I did to the bestinterestof myfutureand the best interest of Nigeria. “I would rather fail doing the right thing than succeed doing the wrong thing.


And that was what I did because I took that decision knowing that it doesn’t inconvenient any other person except myself. I informed him through writing two daysafterleaving the party.”
