Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, dumps PDP

Ken Nnamani

A former President of the Nigerian Senate, Ken Nnamani, has announced his departure from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, a political platform to which be belonged since 1999, and which, in 2005, made him the third most powerful man in Nigeria.

In a statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday, Mr. Nnamani said he was quitting the party because  the platform had abandoned “the path of its noble vision and values”.

Mr. Nnamani was elected to the Senate President in 2003, and was senate president between 2005 and 2007.

In his statement Saturday, entitled, “PDP, the Burden and My  Conscience,” the politician said he was fed up with the current status and direction of the PDP, and was therefore quitting “without any iota of bitterness” in his heart.

“I do not believe I should continue to be a member of the PDP as it is defined today,” Mr. Nnamani said, “This is certainly not the party I joined years ago to help change my country. I do not also believe that the PDP as it is managed today will provide an opportunity for me to continue to play the politics of principles and values which I set for myself as a young man on leaving graduate school and working for a large multinational in the United States in the 70s and 80s.

“Therefore, today I resign my membership of the PDP. In stepping out of partisan politics for the meantime, I will continue to be politically engaged. I will also continue to support the government and all the elected officers in Nigeria to repositioning the nation.

“I will also constructively criticize them when by commission or omission they take actions that could damage the prospects of transforming Nigeria into a productive, merit-based and honestly governed country.”

Mr. Nnamani later told PREMIUM TIMES on telephone that he was leaving because it had become crystal clear to him that nothing would change in the party in the foreseeable future.

He recalled that on November 10, 2015, he led a delegation of concerned party leaders to the Wadata Plaza national secretariat of the party to push for change.

“We were simply dismissed,” Mr. Nnamani said. “They simply said they would get back to us. We haven’t heard from them since then.”

He said even after the party was defeated in the 2015 general election, he and other like-minded party members believed that that defeat could be transformed to victory.

“We were hopeful and continued to push for reform,” Mr. Nnamani said. “But as you can see, that hasn’t work. Those who led us to defeat have continued to hold the party down.

“In the circumstance, I have to move on and get on with my life.”

Read Mr. Nnamani’s full statement below.

PDP, the Burden and My  Conscience

Without any iota of bitterness in my heart, I have decided to disengage from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and consequently step aside from partisan politics in the interim. I wish to express my profound gratitude to the party that gave me the platform with which I attained the height I did in the politics of our country.

How I wish the efforts I mounted with some of my colleagues (many of whom have left the party) to keep the PDP on the path of its noble vision and values had been supported by those who were privileged to be at the helm of affairs of the party, it would have been a different day for the PDP. It would have been a day of victory and pride not of defeat and shame.

I recall that the virus of corruption of values and mission was what those my colleagues and I set out to cure through the formation of the PDP Reform Forum in 2010/11. We worked hard to draw up a new direction for the Party.

This was to help steer the party away from illegality and impropriety so that PDP can fulfill its promise of being a vanguard of Nigeria’s political and economic development. A direction defined by strict adherence to basic rules and morality in the management of party affairs. Chief of these values is respect for choice of party members in electing party candidates for elections.

With more than half a decade of championing such a fundamental but simple idea, I regret that the PDP leadership continues to rebuff internal democracy. The party allowed itself to be blinded by hubris to believe that it will remain in power and influence for 60 years in spite of several gross missteps and grievous misnomer. We foresaw this ditch and prescribed how to avert falling into it. But we were dismissed as idealistic. Today the idealists have become realists.

Recently, even after our avoidable abysmal electoral defeat, I continued to believe that we can still chart a new course and retrieve victory from the jaw of defeat. I continued to urge the leadership of the party to believe that the time of defeat could be the time of renewal, and that renewal requires strategic thinking and bold actions.

I urged that this is a time to reembrace internal democracy and principled leadership to reposition the party for new politics. We are living in different times and we need new tools, ethos and codes of conduct. We need to become a party of technocrats and professionals and not a party of mercenaries and rent seekers.

We need to become the party of young men and women with new ideas and not a party of political dinosaurs. It is clear now that these pleas have fallen on deaf ears. Every day the crisis of confidence and the contradictions in our party deepen. We continue to lose members and morale. The rebuilding some of us had urged on the leadership is not happening. Those who led us to defeat are determined to continue to lead the party as undertakers.

I do not believe I should continue to be a member of the PDP as it is defined today. This is certainly not the party I joined years ago to help change my country. I do not also believe that the PDP as it is managed today will provide an opportunity for me to continue to play the politics of principles and values which I set for myself as a young man on leaving graduate school and working for a large multinational in the United States in the 70s and 80s.

Therefore, today I resign my membership of the PDP. In stepping out of partisan politics for the meantime, I will continue to be politically engaged. I will also continue to support the government and all the elected officers in Nigeria to repositioning the nation. I will also constructively criticize them when by commission or omission they take actions that could damage the prospects of transforming Nigeria into a productive, merit-based and honestly governed country.
As I leave PDP, I wish the leaders a new awakening and ethical revival. I cherish all the friends I made while in PDP and hope the friendship will continue to flourish.

God bless Nigeria.

Senator Ken Nnamani, GCON

    I don’t know how credible Nnamani is but I believe he’s not as bad as metuh or Anenih. He should find like minded credible leftover elements in the PDP and form a new party, so APC can have proper opposition. Leave PDP for Metuh and his gang

    • D. Abjorin


      PDP became a criminal organization when General Olusegun Obasanjo was implicated in Haliburton bribes.
      The sickly President Umaru Yar’Adua; and his corrupt attorney-general Adoke Muhammed, did nothing on it.
      The United States of America and foreigners began to see PDP as a criminal organization from that moment.

    • share Idea

      It will not do Nigeria any good for PDP to go instinct, it will be nice for PDP to re-invent themselves. APC is not a nationalistic party and PDP will always find their strength later.

  • Ashibogu

    Who cares? He can join ISIS, who gives a damn? Why won’t he dump the Party when there is no money to share as before, Abeg make him go Sidon jare! Yeye dey smell!

    How Haliburton bribes killed the PDP party


    • Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal A. D. Bello (alleged to have collected $15.7million using his foreign account,
    for himself and a former military head of state;)
    • Alhaji Ibrahim Aliyu, elder brother of the Niger State governor and former federal permanent secretary alleged
    to have collected over $35million for himself and others including a former military head of state,
    • Alhaji Abdukadir Abacha, brother of late head of state (Sani Abacha) also alleged to have collected $7million
    using his foreign firm as front.
    • Former Minister of Petroleum, Chief Dan Etete, alleged to have collected $3. 5million,
    using his oil company (Malabu Oil) as front;
    • Former Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Mr. Jackson Gaius Obaseki, alleged to have facilitated the collection
    of about $11million which was shared between Bodunde Adeyanju, former Special Assistant to former President
    Olusegun Obasanjo, and, a former Minister of State for Defence – Lawal Batagarawa.
    • Alhaji Gidado Bakare of the defunct CITI Bank who was detained for over one month during investigation. He was alleged to have collected more than $60million for himself, and for another former military head of state and for some other prominent persons in Northern Nigeria.

  • MI

    Great statesmanship from Chief Nnamani. No doubt your leaving the PDP is best for you and the nation. Kindly join hands with Mr President, his team, other statemen and elders to help the nation out of the woods. Nigeria today requires all her best and elders to come together to salvage / make our country great again irrespective of the grievances from some areas. Then those grievances which so far hasn’t proved to me as insurmountable can then be addressed. The country must raise against the corrupt and those more or less responsible for our decay of our society to bring back all the wealths embezzled in the national interest before any other consideration.

    See how PDP ruined Nigeria’s Central Bank……

    • ₦1.12billion was taken as spent by Sanusi Lamido on lunch for 12 CBN police
    guards in one year.

    • ₦1.12billion was taken in cash and entered in the account as paid to a non-operating airline
    for charter service.

    • ₦240billion was discretionally doled out at will as ‘donations’ by Sanusi Lamido,

    • ₦38.23billion developed legs and got missing in Central Bank under Sanusi Lamido Sanusi,

    • ₦1.97billion was paid out in cash and entered on Central Bank accounts as “inexplicable
    expense” by Sanusi Lamido Sanusi,

    • ₦20billion was paid out in cash as Legal Fees by Sanusi Lamido to persons unknown,

    • ₦3.086billion was taken by Sanusi Lamido as expense ostensibly to promote
    Central Bank image,

    • ₦160billion was taken by Sanusi Lamido at Central Bank for self-determined activities,

    • Pere Gasper


      It is difficult to remain a member of PDP under Goodluck Jonathan’s headship. Jonathan does not think.
      He is the most senior PDP party member today, as a former president, but that’s red flag to supporters.
      There’s nothing good Jonathan did, said or believes in, that the PDP can coast on as brilliant or wise.

    • Rommel

      The worst is the over $20 billion dollars which was trapped somehwere inside the underwears of Diezeani Madueke and Jonathan Goodluck bedroom that eventually never made it to the CBN

    This is probably another thief that will decamp to APC to avoid the long hands of EFCC.

  • Rommel

    The PDP was never a political party,it was a platform used by the military to return Nigeria to civil rule,all those that joined PDP joined because there was merry go round,the decent ones in that political part left a long ago while those that remained were rendered impotent

  • westernrollings

    When a political party derailed from the path of political policies,principles and values. what else do you expect.
    The IBO man has taken a reasonable decision .

  • Damocle

    Okokomaiko….NKANU people are Igbo Yaribas! Nkanu should be moved to Yariba land and Ekiti people moved to SE/SS.

    Old cargo Jim Nwobodo decamped to APC. NKANU. For every 10 robberies in Enugu or Igbo land 9 of them are committed by Nkanu people.

    Now Nnamani? This guy has been promised presidency, vice-presidency by APC or Atiku. There is Godoooo

    • Darlington

      Bros, pls don’t join outsiders in desecrating your people. Ken Nnamani and Jim Nwobodo have no political value in their wards let lone the entire Nkanu (Enugu-East Senatorial zone), they are living on borrowed time.

  • Salome

    Join them to share the cake. It is the season so go and enjoy where it’s happening. Gulak and his gang are bent on playing the devil’s advocate before he leaves too. After all it’s about interest. It will get to that before its stabilizes. When others stay to build and he does not get what he wants in APC he will still run back.

    • Amir

      Only a dog runs back to its vomit. PDP is vomit, no sane person will ever want to associate with Dumbo’s evil platform that raped Nigeria to bone marrow.

      • Darlington

        Who were the PDP members that reaped Nigeria as you ignorantly claimed? The same people in APC like:
        Chibuike Amaechi, Atiku, OBJ, Ngige, Saraki, Bello Masari, Audu Ogbe, Gemade, Samuel Ortom, Nasiru El-Rufia, Aminu Tambuwal, Kwakwanso, etc. The list is endless.. Remove the years those opportunists were in the PDP for the so-called 16 years and tell us what is left.

        • Amir

          A sinner that repents becomes a Christian. One of the robbers on the cross beside Christ confessed to his sins and asked for mercy and received more – the kingdom. But the unrepentant one like you remained in the PDP of deceit and mockery and was condemned to hell. The fact that you always accuse those that left shows clearly you’re aware PDP is evil. In my LGA an ex-convict is the chairman of PDP and all retired and practicing robbers are members. Virtually 90% of its membership have unfinished dubious cases at the police. In 2011 entered fortunato, the ineffectual buffoon who under PDP now took political, economic thievery and incompetence to an epic level.

  • Chinedu Don

    Those that led the party to a defeat are still holding the party down bcos they want to hide under the cover of opposition leadership in other to invade corruption charges. But Buhari seem to be smarter than them. The most honorable thing for them to do in the face of defeat is to follow Jonathan, muazu and sambo vacate the leadership of the party. Group of people that couldn’t manage success is promising dumb PDP members that they will win 2019 election and some fools actually believe them.

  • front man

    What else Ken nnamani leaves pdp

  • front man

    Pdp change its name from people democratic party to people dead party

  • woman leader

    Pdp is living dead party that will soon be forgotten soon.

    • Darlington

      A party that just secured Supreme Court in strategic states of S/E and S/S is dead? You don’t understand the dictionary definition of death.

      • Julius

        Now you like the judiciary and Buhari is no longer a dictator because the SC gave you victories . Right ?

  • Darlington

    Ken Nnamani has not disappointed us, I would have been surprise if he didn’t leave PDP for where the bread is buttered. Must you tell us where you did your first job as fresh graduate? These are the kind of opportunists that need to leave the party for its to rebrand.

  • Darlington

    Ken Nnamani is a liability to his then party PDP. Former Senate President that could not win his ward in Amaechi Awkunano.

  • Odarije

    Ken is a good riddance to a bad rubbish . Hope he will move with the Enugu North Caretaker Committee Chairman , he donated to Governor Ugwuanyi recently .

  • TrueFairGame

    I personally respect Ken. I always believe ken being a gentle man is only in pdp physically but he is not with them in spirit. he should have quit before now, its rather late However, his personality is a good political asset. He can contribute to the nation

    • Darlington

      Ken cannot win his ward! Who do measure a politician, by big name or ability to deliver his ward, LGA, and state?

      • TrueFairGame

        Ken doesn’t have many political enemies even in the east. If you give him say the task of mobilizing the political elites in the east to support a course, he wont fail. The truth about the politics in the east is that they are not ideologically strong rather power and money dictate things.

        • Darlington

          If they are not ideologically strong, why did they reject Buhari and APC out rightly? Did GEJ share money to every Igbo man on the street of Enugu or Onitsha? Pls excuse me.

          • TrueFairGame

            ethnic sentiments and religious propaganda played a role in last election and the truth is that the south east are not politically smart. Most of them can be brainwashed with lies.

          • Julius

            Thank you. The same folks pretending that they want biafra now. They didnt want biafra till Jonathan lost the election and the gravy train stopped. They think they are smart.Pius is now begging for protection from Buhari because he stop funding their fake protest and they want him dead.

      Vanguard Online Edition, Lagos. Sunday, June 5, 2011 � In News

      FORMER National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Ahmadu Ali disclosed yesterday that late President Umaru Yar’Adua personally picked President Goodluck Jonathan as his running mate ahead of the 2007 polls without the prompting of any of the leaders of the party.

      The party boss also said Jonathan almost rejected the offer to run with Yar’Adua.

      Ali spoke against the backdrop that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was responsible for the emergence of Jonathan then as vice president.

      The former PDP national chairman was speaking yesterday at the second day of the two-day retreat for the president, governors and National Assembly members�elect. The programme, held under the theme, �’ Legislative and Executive Branch Collaboration: A new Synergy for National Transformation”, was organised by the PDP in collaboration with the Peoples Democratic Institute, PDI, at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

    The Ibo Nation should learn to be creative-and not allow themselves be tagged as a follow follow-people-or (Obey the wind) set of Humans-Anywhere the wind blows the Nation to, they follow because of their insatiable greed-for money-How many Yorubas teamed up with the Ibos when Buhari run for president in–2003 and 2007–with two Ibos as his VPs? I am shocked to see the Ibos, refuse to build the PDP to a level that will become the ennvy of the country–The South East and the South south–can become the Economic power block of 9ja via such a political arrangement—–But can the Ibos be trusted?-Happily God has blessed the SS, with ideas that will empower them to sustain the activities of PDP in the zone—The rest can remain in their poverty stricken budget thieving APC party- for all we care—Sad that a party created by late Ojukwu, APGA, is wobbling-just floating-about in the South EAST—I mean name one Yoruba man who joined CPC, to assist the Ibos entrench themselves in the politics of 9ja-via Buhari in 2003 and 2007?–That is why I begin to wonder what some Ibos mean when they talk about establishing a new Niger Delta within the( bonded) confines of their Biafra–I often laugh-at such limited ideas——Because——the entire project is based on some old selfish regional sentiments-as this act by Ken concerning his movement to align with the APEs in APC to form a single party in Nigeria, clearly indicates———————Animals

    • Darlington

      It is injustice and primordial to use selfish acts of few hungry elders to judge a particular zone. Ken and Jim are political prostitutes who have outlived their usefulness. Jim and Ken are from the same Ward–two of them combine cannot deliver their ward because they have on influence over their people. Mind you, Igbos are not limited to S/E alone, we have Igbos in Rivers and Delta States. Igbos are the only tribe in Nigeria that can thrive successfully without government support. Ken cannot even speak for his family let lone his Ward.

        Nigerians Are Criminals, That’s Why they are not Welcome Abroad – Buhari

        Nigeria’s president has warned his fellow citizens from certain parts of the country, to stop trying to make asylum claims in Britain, saying that their reputation for criminality has made it hard for them to be “accepted” abroad.

        Muhammadu Buhari, ex-general elected last year, said those who had joined the migrant exodus to Europe were doing so purely for economic reasons rather than because they were in danger. It is not clear if they include people from the troubled North East of Nigeria and the Niger Delta region now under the control of soldiers.

        He added that because of the number of Nigerians imprisoned for law-breaking in Britain and elsewhere, they were also unlikely to get much sympathy. Sadly the camp of Buhari where Ken is running does not care about him because Obj also made similar remarks while on a visit to Italy. He askeed the Itzalain government to deport Nigerians back home regardless of their status.Yet Buhari cannot even pay salaries of civil servants-wants the few Nigerians who sweat it out in the cold to enable them improve the lot of their people back home away from London where he bought a house several years ago-with the money he stole from the resource base of the Niger Delta people-

      • Ade Omowest

        Do you really recognize the Aniomas/Ukwanis (Delta) and Ikwerres (Rivers) as your own? You people call them ‘non core Igbos’. That is why the core South Easterners are not recognizing Emefiele CBN Governor, Kachiku Minister of State for Petroleum Resources (Delta State) and Chibuzor Rotimi Amaechi Transportation Minister (Rivers) as holding their positions as Indigbos. Darlington, young, vibrant and enlightened people like you from S/East need to integrate the peripheral tribes around the East by treating them like the real Igbos before you can authoritatively write the way you wrote above.

        • Julius

          Thank you. They never like to be told the truth. They claim those people when its convenient and needed. Other times, as you have stated, they denounce, call them names and put them down . Going back to history, Ojukwu invaded them for their oil. Simple.

      • Julius

        So tell me why are you not thriving now ? You are in misery because you lie to yourself so much. Im starting to think its the fault of your elders, they never tell you the truth. You grew up believing all these nonsense about you can do it yourself, self reliant and most brave and powerful bullshit . You have your governors and your states but, you whine daily about marginalization craps.You are not the only tribe that can do for yourselves without the government. Stop lying . its annoying and makes you look like a loud mouth and liars.

          Diagonising Nigerian Social, Political, Economic Society; Case Study of The Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba Tribe.

          Come to think of it. I am sure you know of social political economy which exist in every nation. People of different races takes part in these activities within any country. Nigeria for example has three dominant ethinic groups comprising of Hausa, Igbo, and Yoruba. As you know, different groups have their own special interest in these activities. The Yoruba race is well grounded and civilised to accomodate and interact with all groups in these different social, political, and economic activities. You inept sons and daughters of ignorance always make reference to the political marriage between Hausa and Yoruba forgeting the fact that there is relationship between Yorubas and Igbos in the entertainment industry which is encompassed in socialism even though all these activities is grounded in socialism itself.
          The music industry for example is where you will find love existing between Yoruba and Igbo groups. Economics is what brings them all together because they seems to agree on a common ground in terms of making money even though they all strive for financial survival.
          The Hausas and the Igbos dont seem to get along well except when it has to do with money that you get engaging in economic activities. Could this line of difference be termed intolerance or score settling mind dated to the first coup of 1966? A question to you ethnocentrist on this forum.

The difference is that we see the work you execute although your guys are also looters. Between pdp and apc, we just pick the less evil of the two parties.

  • Izedomi Ohirein

    Where was Nnamani when APC was being formed, when their members where being hounded and abused by Nigeria securities under the control of PDP he belonged.
    Now that the elections has been worn & lost, those in politics for the spoils of office are turning themselves into scavengers, deflecting to APC either for protection from prosecution for the crimes they committed while in PDP or to gain public office & meal ticket from APC government.
    Many Nigerians have no principles, honour or dignity in public life including politic. They are ready to call white black, using ignorant people as fronts or eat their vomits because of money.

  • musa aliero

    Most PDP people r in APC today! The problem is the bad guys in pdp don’t want to go and they have hijacked the leadership of the party! I beg all sincere PDP members to leave the party for the vampires to kill themselves no need trying to salvage a party with some idiots that want the status quo of imposition and corruption to continue! Leave the party for them to enjoy their corrupt ways and form a new party made up of sincere and intelligent people that can give a worthy opposition to APC

    • Izedomi Ohirein

      Igbo are not patient or principled enough to play opposition politics. This is the first time since 1959, Yoruba progressives are in power in alliance with progressives from the northern.
      It has been the Northern conservatives NPC, NPN in alliance with Igbo NCNC, NPP & now PDP.
      Those who forget so easily or ignorant of Nigerian politics complain of Igbo marginalisation, when they should be holding their people responsible for corruption & selling opportunities to them for selfish interest. Look at money spent on 2nd Niger bridge & work done to date. If we want to probe it today, Igbo will cry of victimisation of their thieving people.

That was Ojukwu’s party allowed to die because the igbos are greedy and PDP was where the food is. You cannot blame others for your own shortcomings. The igbos have demonstrated so much hatred for Nigeria that Nigerians will not want anything to do with a party from the SE today.

    As an Iboman, this shouldn’t be a front page news as the man in question is a nonentity to the great Ndigbo. He has no value whatsoever apart from being one of the most corrupt elements in the Nigerian space. This is meant to embarrasse Ndigbo.

    • Dan Arewa

      I learned that, no Igbo man has value whatsoever nowadays according to you people; politicians, traditional rulers and religious leaders. The only few good ones according to you are Namandi Kanus who happened to be some of the worst criminals among you. That is now the direction of your thought. What kind of Biafra are you people dreaming to build counting almost every politician, traditional ruler, religious leaders and also every elite out?

      • S Wilson

        Where did you ‘learn’ this from, Dan Arewa? With all your criticisms these ‘igbos’ still appear to be the most industrialised and innovative tribe in your country; aha, perhaps that’s the reason for the inherent marginalisation they have faced pre, and most certainly post war within the corridors of power in Nigeria. Why wouldn’t they scrap and fight for the morsels thrown at them to share.
        Your colonial masters knew the potential of the ‘igbos’ and still do, they both revere them and fear them and have instilled that sentiment into the lazy easily manipulated minds of the rest of the republic.

    Belonging to the PDP has become political suicide. It doesn’t matter if they call themselves the New PDP, or the Old PDP, or the Ganster Party. Everyone knows who they are.

    The embarrassing attitude of Jonathan in federal leadership is the silent reason why PDP has become a mockery and disgrace. When you employ a bad worker in an organisation the good workers start to look for another job.

      I disagree. Buffoons like Femi Fani Kayode, Olisa Metuh and Governor Fayose are really the most recent masquerades dragging the PDP down. Big weights like OBJ are the elders who scattered the party from within. After leaving office OBJ became an opposition party all by himself even though much of the indiscipline in the party was fostered by him. He failed to fire Fani Kayode as a scandalized Minister if Aviation when he should have. He set aside merit for mediocrity. He imposed Yaradua and Jonathan on Nigeria. He scattered the PDP in the Southwest by patronizing thugs like Adelabu and failed Governors like Col Olafinsoye. In the end the party lacked discipline to merit further patronage under a very lose and vapid Jonathan.

    Beside Ekwemen who else can raise his head as an igbo leader today if not Ken Nnamani? He was number three and known for his nationalism in the way he tackle Obasanjo. The presidency is going to shift to the SE now and who else is to be groomed for the job than Nnamani who has experience and national appeal? His leaving PDP to support the government and stay away from politics in the interim is to fashion out his way for 2019 as the APC presidential candidate.
