‘It’s Unconstitutional’- PDP Bot Demands Anyanwu’s Resignation As National Secretary

by admin

The board of trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the resignation of Samuel Anyanwu as the party’s national secretary.

Anyanwu is also the PDP governorship candidate for the upcoming November 11 election in Imo state.

The BoT’s request is based on the party’s constitution, which prohibits a member from holding two positions.

In a letter dated October 12 and addressed to Iliya Damagun, the acting PDP national chairman, the BoT, led by Adolphus Wabara, stated that Anyanwu should have resigned as the national secretary after being elected as a governorship candidate.

The BoT emphasized its role as the party’s conscience and called on the National Working Committee (NWC) to ensure Anyanwu’s immediate resignation from the national secretary position to focus on the approaching election in Imo state.

In April, Anyanwu was elected as the party’s governorship candidate in Imo after he scored 802 votes in the primary election.

After his election as the PDP candidate, some members of the party called for his resignation as the national secretary.

“Nonetheless, the BOT, as the conscience of the party, has the constitutional authority to call to order any member of the party acting in a way contrary to the guiding principles of our party and this is one of them,” the statement reads.

“It is therefore against the background of the above that the Board wishes to put it on record and state categorically that the NWC should do the right thing by ensuring that the Imo state gubernatorial candidate resigns from office immediately and focus on the election which is less than 30 days away” Wabara wrote
