Kogi ex-deputy gov. Awoniyi dumps PDP


A former Deputy Governor of Kogi, Abayomi Awoniyi, on Thursday, officially announced his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Notice of his defection is contained in a letter, entitled, “Letter of resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party”, made available to newsmen in Lokoja.

Awoniyi served as deputy to former Gov Idris Wada.

He conveyed his resignation in a letter dated August 31 and addressed to the PDP Chairman of Mopamuro Local Government Area of Kogi.

The letter partly read: “I hereby write to tender my letter of resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party after 25 unbroken years of loyal and dedicated membership and service.”

“With this resignation letter, I cease to be a member of the PDP.

“Kindly convey my sincere gratitude to the party faithful in Mopamuro LGA, Kogi West Senatorial District, and indeed the entire state, through your fellow LGAs party chairmen, for their support and camaraderie, over the years.

“I look forward to our continued friendship, despite the fact that I am no longer a member of your party,” he stated.

Awoniyi is yet to pitch tent with other parties as his next line of action is still undisclosed.
