The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Tony Anenih, has explained why he resigned his position on Wednesday. In a one-page letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, Anenih said his decision to quit would enable the president to effectively assume the chairmanship of the BoT. The letter dated May 20, 2015 and titled: “Notice of my decision to step down as Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party,” reads: “Your Excellency will recall that in a conversation I had with you a few weeks ago, I had offered to step down from the office of the Chairman of our party’s Board of Trustees and proposed to hand over to you as its new Chairman in a ceremony that would have taken place on the 23rd of May, 2015.

I had also repeated this position in our subsequent meetings. “As a follow up to the above proposal and in view of the current state of affairs in our party, I have decided to formally put my offer in writing to enable you effectively assume the Chairmanship of Board of Trustees or approve a process that will enable any other member of the BoT who is considered competent, to assume the position. “Kindly accept therefore, this letter as notice of my decision to step down from the position of Chairman of the BoT of our party with effect from today, the 20th of May, 2015. “I am happy to inform you that, I remain a loyal foundation member of our great party and will continue to pray for the prosperity of Nigeria, our party, and for you and your family. “Your Excellency, kindly accept the expression of my highest regards,” the letter said. Anenih’s resignation coincided with that of the party’s chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, who also stepped down yesterday. PDP State Governors and some stalwarts of the party had asked the duo to leave their positions following the poor outing of the party from the general elections.
