Nwosu was a founding member of the PDP and has played significant roles in the affairs of the party at the National and Zonal levels.
Nwosu cited non adherence to the principle of rotation by PDP as his reason.
“This resignation for me is a matter of CONSCIENCE and PRINCIPLE because of the party’s inability to adhere to the ROTATION provision in its (PDP) Constitution.
”The journey to the rotational presidency between the North and South of Nigeria has been a long and arduous one, and I have been involved.
“Nigeria and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) must learn to keep to an agreement reached by a Constituent Assembly (1995) and enshrined in the party’s (PDP) Constitution (1998),” he said in the resignation letter.
