Albert Bassey Akpan has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Akpan explained in a letter to his ward chairman, which was obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA, that he intends to run for governor of Akwa-Ibom state on the platform of a different party.PastorUmo
Eno is the current gubernatorial candidate for the PDP in the state.
The letter stated, "I am making this communication with the greatest sense of responsibility, purpose, and love for my people."
I have been a loyal and devoted member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for over 20 years and have served our people, state, and nation diligently and faultlessly through the platform of the party. I have also, by the grace of God, made significant contributions to the growth and development of our country, state, and people in general.
I believe that as a distinguished lawmaker, one must always advocate and pursue the virtues and values that promote and sustain effective adherence to the rule of law.
As you are aware, my desire to serve as the Executive Governor of our beloved state is not a personal or egotistical one, but rather the collective aspiration of our people, founded on the principles of justice and equity, to create a better and more prosperous Akwa Ibom State.
According to Jean Anouilh, "the only immorality is not doing what one must do when one must do it."
Therefore, after extensive consultation with God, family, friends, supporters, and well-meaning believers in a just and equitable Akwa Ibom State around the world, it is clear that these collective yearnings and ambitions cannot be realized under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
Therefore, guided by the sentiments, concerns, and worries expressed by our people regarding the need to take immediate action to realize their aspirations, therefore, I am compelled to resign from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) immediately.
