2015-03-16 11:01

Kano - The former Speaker of the House of Representatives under the regime of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reports Premium Times.

He cited the abysmal level to which the leadership of President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP have reduced governance as reasons for dumping the party.

Na’Abba in a letter dated March 15, 2015 and addressed to the PDP leadership, blamed President Jonathan and other previous leaders of the PDP, which has ruled Nigeria since 1999, of putting the country in in a bad situation.

Na’Abba, however ,did not state if he was joining any other party.
