Ex-Bayelsa commissioner, Iworiso-Martins, dumps PDP
Former Commissioner for Information and Orientation under the administration of a former governor, Seriake Dickson, of Bayelsa State, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, has resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Iworiso-Markson, in a letter dated July 7, 2022, addressed to the PDP chairman of ward 11 in Ogbia Council of the state, said he decided to quit the party because of unfair treatment.
He also said his decision was borne out of his desire to pursue his aspiration to offer quality representation to the people of Ogbia Federal Constituency.
The resignation letter reads: “This signifies my decision to officially quit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). As it is customary, I am writing to inform you and also state the reasons behind my action, which were well thought out.”
“Recall that on May 23, 2022, I contested for the ticket of the PDP for Ogbia Federal Constituency. The process and outcome of the election even though not satisfactory, were swept under the carpet. Ordinarily, it was expected that the PDP leadership will reach out and make certain overtures to assuage the feelings of people like me but more than a month after, nothing has been done.
“Rather, the party has continued as if all is well even when it is glaring that it is not. I consider this as an act of disregard and disdain, especially against the likes of me that has contributed so much to the success of the party since 2012. My record of service and loyalty while in government to both the party and the state cannot be denied and even when things went bad I remained not minding the threats.”
