Maiyaki in his letter to the PDP Chairman of Odo-Eri/Okoto Ward, Odo-Eri, Yagba West LGA, said “I have been a party ardent since 1998 starting from the first National Convention in Jos, Plateau State, but today, I can no longer cope with the array of impunity in the party.

Jones, in his own letter addressed to the Ward Chairman PDP, Ward 03, Mopamuro LGA, stated, that “This is to inform you of my decision to resign as a member of PDP to pursue other interests.
