Audu Ogbeh: Nigerian party leader steps down

The chairman of Nigeria's ruling party has resigned following a bitter row with President Olusegun Obasanjo

The chairman of Nigeria's ruling party has resigned following a bitter row with President Olusegun Obasanjo.

People's Democratic Party chairman Audu Ogbeh has handed in his letter of resignation, his spokesman said.

Mr Ogbeh had disagreed with Mr Obasanjo over how to handle a crisis between rival party factions in the south-eastern Anambra state.

A BBC correspondent in Nigeria says the resignation raises question marks over the PDP's future unity.

Mr Ogbeh's spokesman Thompson Abu said he had resigned for personal reasons but did not elaborate.

In November, armed gangs ransacked the governor's office ahead of local elections.
Anambra has experienced unrest after Chris Ngige became governor in 2003 and fell out with his political backer.

He was forced to write a resignation letter at gunpoint.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
