The organizing secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kwara State chapter, Malam Sulyman Olatunji Buhari has tendered his resignation letter as the party’s scribe.
Buhari’s resignation dated June 28, 2021 and addressed to the PDP Chairman in the state, Engr Kola Shittu.
Buhari, a one time Chairman of the defunct Congress For Progressive Change (CPC) is a close confidant of the immediate past Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
Though, the former PDP Organising Secretary cited personal issues as reasons for his resignation from the party.
Buhari’s close ally and confidant, Barr. AbdulKareem Kokewukobere had since pitched his tent with a former Deputy National Chairman of CPC, Malam Salihu Mustapha who is now eyeing the national chairmanship of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former PDP Organising Secretary was also the State Chairman of CPC in 2011 when the incumbent governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq was the gubernatorial candidate of the CPC in the state.
The trio of Buhari, Mustapha and AbdulKareem are from the same Gambari quarters of Ilorin and were members of the same political family before Buhari joined the Saraki dynasty sometimes in 2014.
Buhari’s letter of resignation reads:
” I wish to inform you of my intention to resign from my position as the Organising Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State.
“I have taken this decision to allow me focus more on family and business interests. I thank the party leadership most sincerely for the opportunity to serve in various capacities in the last few years.”
