Yakubu Dogara Resigns from PDP, Explains Why (Full Letter)

This letter of resignation, Dogara cited the failed governance of Bauchi State by Governor Bala Mohammed as the main reason for his decamping. 

This he said was because should he remain in the PDP,  he could not ask questions on maladministration without  being accused of disloyalty.

Adding that should he ignore this responsibility of telling the truth like he did under the leadership of  former Governors Isa Yuguda and Mohammed Abubakar, he will be irresponsible and unprincipled. 

His full letter read 

The Chairman

People’s Democratic Party,

Bogoro ‘C’ Ward,

Bogoro LGA,

Bauchi State.

LETTER OF RESIGNATION OF MY MEMBERSHIP OF THE PDP

Above subject matter refers.

I write to intimate you of my decision to resign my membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

This became necessary because the same reasons why we fought hard in 2019 to effect changes in the Governance of our dear state are festering now.

I intend to bring these issues to the front burners once again as the fight to install decent and egalitarian government in our dear state continues.

Specifically, I intend to ask questions about the following:

a. What has happened to LGA allocations since May 2019?

b. What happened to our campaign promise to conduct LGA elections within six months of the PDP government?

c. What happened to the N4.6 billion loan taken from a bank and paid directly into an private company’s account?

d. Why are we segmenting salaries and why is payment of salaries of state workers outsourced to a private firm as consultants?

e. Why are contracts inflated, awarded and payment of mobilisation done in violation of extant rules on procurement?

f. Why are our highly revered Traditional Rulers and Elders treated with odium contrary to the guarantee we gave during the campaign that such will not happen under a PDP government?

Mr. Chairman, you will agree with me that I cannot raise these issues and many more questions without a charge of disloyalty levelled against me if I were to remain a member of the PDP cannot also fail to raise these questions now, having raised similar ones during the administrations of Governors Isa Yuguda and Mohammed A. Abubakar.

If I abdicate this responsibility on the altar of partisan loyalty, I will be the most irresponsible and unprincipled politician in Bauchi State.

Thus, by this letter, I have resigned my membership of the PDP to enable me keep faith with my principle of fighting for good governance in our Dear State.
