Former campaign director to Atiku Abubakar, Senator Boluwaji Kunlere, has resigned his membership from the Peoples Democratic Party.
The former Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on Solid Minerals, who represented Ondo South Senatorial District, tendered his resignation in a letter dated Wednesday, January 24, 2024, according to Sahara Reporters.
He joined the PDP from the Labour Party in August 2014, two days after the widely reported news that then-Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo was on the verge of defecting to the PDP as well.
In a letter addressed to the Igbotako 2 Ward Chairman of the PDP at Igbotako Ward 2 in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, the senator appreciated the PDP for the period he had been its member.
“I sincerely express my appreciation to you and other members of the party for your cooperation and support throughout the period of my membership of the party.
“Thank you and God bless,” the letter reads.
The senator had served as former Secretary of the PDP in Ondo State and Senator of the 7th National Assembly.
He added that he decided to join the PDP after consultations with his constituents and to pursue his political career.
