A former member of the Peoples Democratic Party in Burutu Local Government Area, Timimene Theophilous Bougha, has described the party as a polished home of comedy.
Bougha said this in his resignation letter from the party, tendered to the PDP Obotebe Ward 10 Chairman, Clark Akpoerebo on Friday January 13.
An aggrieved Bougha said the PDP had degenerated to a party where those at the helm of affairs were no longer worthy.

He lamented being used and abandoned despite giving his all to the growth of the PDP, alleging that leaders at the ward level of the party constantly peddled lies in the name of the governor.
His resignation letter reads;
“This is to notice that, henceforth, I have withdrawn my membership from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the highlighted reasons, though not exhausted;
“Following gross neglect, use and dump, abandonment, high handedness of nucleated nepotism, despotic level of misconduct, and abuse of party tenets with an impoverished reward system.
“Lack of internal democracy, and the “Lord It Over” syndrome, orchestrated in repulsively unholy victimization of faithful party members who are not part of the nuclear family structures of said party leadership in the Ward.
“Inability of the party to gain and attract appointment of faithful party members into political offices in a government where the leaders of the Ward claims to be personal friend to the governor, towers to making him governor.
“Failure of the party to wade in, and caution gross impunity of leaders, abating and supporting excesses of leaders of the party in the Ward as they hoodwink and short change faithful members who have served genuinely and paid their dues.
“A party whose leadership in the Ward will constantly lie in the name of the governor with no corresponding empowerment and meaningful development other than themselves and immediate family thus flaunting the principle of inclusiveness.
“With so much disdain, the leadership of the party has shown no remorse and unbearable insensitivity to the plight of the people.
“A work man is worthy of his wage – working and delivering results assiduously for the party in every election year with acclaimed leaders taking the glory, and benefits to themselves, and to hell if a leader is not from your nuclear family, leaving the rest of us with unbearable scars.
“Consequent upon, it is devastating to be in a party with those who subvert the mandate to their self ends, those who can not sincerely influence anything meaningful, but can go to any length to cow the people with cosmetic deceit and polished lies.
“The once revered party, now a home of polished comedy – degenerated to having unstable tongues leveling as leaders.
“Premised above, it is now inexcusably pertinent for me to terminate and divorce my marital allegiance and oath of membership with the party forthwith.
“This, will no doubt usher me the vantage to chart a new horizon that will bring light to “Who work Go chop” and not “Monkey Work, Monkey Chop, and not Baboon. I hereby tender my resignation letter.”
Meanwhile, the young politician has since pitched his tent with the All Progressives Party, the main opposition party in Delta State.
