Nigeria2015: Ex-House Speaker, Ghali Na’Abba, dumps PDP

Ghali Na'Abba

A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’Abba, has dumped Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

In his resignation letter dated March 15, Mr. Na’Abba, who led the legislative chamber during the Olusegun Obasanjo presidency, accused President Goodluck Jonathan of reducing governance to a ridiculous level and splitting the country along ethnic and religious lines.

The ex-lawmaker’s letter was sent to the chairman of the PDP Sharada Ward in Kano Municipal Local Government Area and titled “Notification of Resignation from PDP, each organs and committees.”
The letter was also copied to the PDP chairman in Kano, North West Zone National Vice Chairman, National Chairman, and Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees.

Mr. Na’Abba blamed President Jonathan and other previous leaders of the PDP, which has ruled Nigeria since 1999, of putting the country in in a bad situation.

“In the sixteen years the Party has been ruling at the center, the Party’s leadership has failed to lead by example,” he said.

He, however, had the harshest criticism for the current president, saying, “No administration has used religion and ethnicity to divide Nigerians more than the current administration under the leadership of Mr. Goodluck Jonathan.”
The former lawmaker did not state if he was joining any other party but told PREMIUM TIMES on phone that he was being lobbied by other parties to join them. His supporters in Kano, whose governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, also dumped the PDP for the All Progressices Congress, APC, however expect the ex-lawmaker to also join the main oppostion party.
Read excerpts of his resignation letter below.

“You are no doubt aware of the abysmal level to which the leadership of our great Country under President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party have reduced governance to, as a result of which our great Party has been losing its sons and daughters including so many of its founding fathers and members by the day,” the Kano-born lawmaker stated.

“All efforts of critical members and fathers of the Party to offer advice remain always unheeded. It pains most of us that majority of the founding fathers that had died like Chief S. M. Afolabi, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar Rimi, Chief Solomon Lar, Professor Osammor, Chief S. B. Awoniyi etc all died as a result of their frustration by and with the Party.
“Those living like Dr. Alex Ekwueme, Malam Adamu Chiroma, Dr Shettima Mustapha, Alhaji Asheikh Jarma Dr. Victor Odili, Mr. Isaac Shaahu and many others are equally living with such frustration. While others like Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Alhaji Isyaku Ibrahim, Alhaji Musa Gwadabe, two former National Chairmen, Chief Audu Ogbe and Chief Barnabas Gemade etc had since left the Party.

“The Party and the administration clearly possess neither compassion nor empathy.

“The Country’s and the Party’s leadership have become cabalised to the extent that while Nigerians are aware that they have a President in the person of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, they are at the same time at a loss as to who governs their Country. Both Nigeria and the PDP are left to drift. In the sixteen years the Party has been ruling at the center, the Party’s leadership has failed to lead by example.
“Instead, it has left us with the conventional wisdom that people cannot succeed in life unless they are ruthless and unprincipled. The Party has become characterized by corruption and impunity in the way and manner candidates for elective positions are being selected to the extent that in almost twenty states, crisis has engulfed the Party over the Gubernatorial primaries and the manner other candidates for other elective positions emerged.

“In short, the Party and the Country’s leadership have failed to consolidate democratic gains for sister African Countries and other transition Countries to follow. Instead, under the current leadership, Nigeria is suffering from loss of esteem, as we are now most often consigned to the back seat of international relations. Most worrisome is the current anxiety of most Nigerians as the regime wobbles and tumbles toward the oncoming election.

“It has today become incontrovertible that cartels and shady characters are becoming visible, important and indispensable factors in Nigeria’s governance. It appears those at the helm of affairs are more comfortable with such characters of easy virtue than with patriotic and altruistic Nigerians. No doubt, in our Country today, the quality of governance is going down by the day.
“Critical National Institutions that unify and wield Nigerians together have been dragged into politics, contrary to wise counsel and political correctness. No administration has used religion and ethnicity to divide Nigerians more than the current administration under the leadership of Mr. Goodluck Jonathan. The ultimate test of any leader is looking at what has remained after he is gone.
“You will agree with me that such pervasive political behavior should under no circumstances be tolerated by all who subscribe to decent and conscionable political practice. I have relentlessly pushed for reform of the internal policies of the PDP individually and collectively, without success. In fact it is common knowledge that all critical members of the Party have been made irrelevant by the Party.
“Members who are pliant and who lack principle and who stand for nothing are always more trusted by the leadership to carry out Party assignments. Such members are said to be “loyal”. Such loyalty is nothing but a euphemism for people who stand for nothing. Because no one is trusted by the leadership both at governmental and party levels, only a handful of party men and women are always entrusted with such party tasks as National Conventions, fund raising. Such men and women are now fully re circled.

“Their faces are today so familiar to the eyes of Nigerians.As a politician with political science background, it is obvious to me that PDP is both self-destruct and irredeemable. Coupled with the regimes divisive and unpatriotic disposition, Nigeria has become a bye-word for “touch and go”, if examples of contemporary nations are anything to go by. The challenge before Nigerians today, in order to secure a new lease of life therefore, is how to get out this inept leadership that has neither allure nor inspiration.

“In its place, Nigerians deserve not just a good President, good governors , and other political office holders, but true and exemplary leaders. And within this context, leadership that is more truly both transactional and transformative and which have more competence and capacity to govern. Nigeria needs leaders with a clear vision for the future. Leaders that will lead not from the back, side or front but from within. Leaders that will provide courageous and moral leadership the dearth of which has led to the weakening of political and economic institutions throughout Nigeria.
“For the above and many reasons, effective today 15th March 2015, I hereby tender my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party, it’s organs including the Board of Trustees and all other committees to which I belong at National and State levels.

“I pray that your mind and those of other Patriots would also be illuminated with truth so that you may also act wisely and accordingly. This comes with the renewed assurances of my highest consideration and personal respect”.

    Ghali Na’Abba may be attracted by the following……

    “On the issue of past corrupt leaders facing trials in various courts
    across the country, i will allow the courts to decide on those cases,
    but whoever is indicted of corruption; between 1999 to the time of my
    swearing-in, would be PARDONED. I am going to draw a line that anybody
    who involves himself in corruption AFTER i assume office, will face the music.”

    ……….General Muhammadu Buhari

      Or perhaps attracted by this other declaration…..

      “The only way to stop us from stealing is to stone us. The Nigerian followers
      are as guilty as the Nigerian leaders. The Nigerian institutions are compromised
      and there is no alternative to them as it is. Nigerians appear not to be against stealing
      and corruption but only against how long you stay stealing and being corrupt.
      Don’t ever expect those in public office to fight corruption on these facts.”

    @Ghali N’abba

    Who divided Nigerians on religious lines?

    Please get the facts right. It was instead Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu –
    Leader of Yoruba Mujahedeens – who injected Islam into politics; first in
    Yorubaland, because he had no credibility he could use elsewhere to hold his
    banditry gang together. Stealing followed and on the back of thefts, the school
    system degraded to the lowest level ever in Yorubaland. As things fell apart in
    2012, Alhaji Bola Tinubu sought escape from the consequences of his mess
    in Yoruba where he had lost face, by pledging his family’s political party – ACN –
    to the Hausa/Fulani in a grand coalition of Muslims called APC. To thereafter
    put it beyond doubt that the APC party is an Islamist Jihad, the APC registered
    as a political party with 100% Muslims as national executives as follows, viz:

    • Yoruba Ronu


      1] Party Leader – North, Gen Muhammadu Buhari……(Muslim)

    Fighting has been raging in Libya between Islamic State (IS) fighters and a militia alliance from the west of the country, near the city of Sirte.

    A spokesman for militia brigades told the BBC that two of their men had been killed in the clashes. Jihadists affiliated to Islamic State seized government buildings and a state radio station in Sirte last month.

I don’t know whether I’m in a different country. While he is accusing GEJ of ethnicity, let him mention one thing that GEJ did for the South that he did not do more than that for the North. Honourable men should not lie in public

      But people in Bayelsa said Jonathan did nothing for them.

      • warry

        Most times our people talk out of ignorance .Which Govt has solved all problems of the society even in100 yrs? The resources available to Govt, are they unlimited? The East -West Road passes through Bayelsa,There is an Airport project on going in Bayelsa. Funds meant for NDDC were released and there are NDDC projects like Land Reclamation going on in most Niger Delta communities. Now as for Naaba, it appears to me he has the problem of ethnicity and religion,because I’m not aware of any protest from him on the death of Abiola or against the Govt.of Abacha which was known to be corrupt and brutal. Why? This is why we are saying we should have a loose Federation where everybody will carry his destiny in his hands, and not blame someone else due to ethnicity and religion.

        • Guguru

          None of us has heard Jonathan make the argument you have made. All we have heard form him and from his wife is that they can solve all of our problems.

    • Ismail Ibrahim Bakori

      Na abba fought Obasanjo because the man is Yoruba Christian from the South. Now he is leaving PDP because Jonathan is a minority Christian from the South-South. Where was Na abba when Abiola a muslim from the South West was arrested and died in detention? His wife Kudirat killed in broad day light. Abiola built schools, hospitals, churches, mosques in the north and all over the country. Yet, predator northern elites like Na abba conspired against him suffocated his mandate. The current anti Jonathan hate campaigns is part of the grand conspiracy by our northrn elites to hijack power at all cost. The other day Ango Abdullahi and Col Hamid Ali, Chief of Staff to Buhari said power must stay in the North for another thirty years that is the reason why they cant trust any southerner or northern christian in 2015.

    It’s clear that this man does not know his right from his left. Leaving the biggest party in Africa based on flimsy excuse means he can’t stand for what he believe in. The only reason why he left is because he knew that our able president has closed all there avenues of financial corruption. Just like jonah in the bible, we need to remove the dead weights in PDP so that we can have a smooth sailing in the polls come march 28.. vote for transformation.

    Thank you Ex -Speaker Ghali Na’Abba for this bitter & lacerating truth, as u correctly observed ‘as the regime wobble and tumble toward upcoming election, the president transformed himself to Father Christmas in the month of lent leading to crucifixion of Christ , re located himself to Marina in Lagos ,instead of campaign , he started distributing $ & £ to Obas and groups in SW. with hope that this will compensate the electricity he did not provide(more darkness than light), the neglect he has visited on them. As he was doing this the buccaneers and the undertakers of the PDP are having their fist day.
    The truth you have prayed for, to illuminate their mind , will not work for this unpatriotic zealots, because they have hardened their heart , their judgement day is here 3/28 , they must have a head on collision with their destiny & destiny of the party ; People Deceiving & Destroying Party.

  • Acosta

    Unscrupulous elements who add no value to the good governance of GEJ’S administration are finally leaving PDP and APC is waiting eagerly with arms wide open to welcome chaffs. Myopic individuals like Na Abba will stop at nothing to showcase their brainlessness. GEJ’S administration witnessed the equitable distribution of resources to all geopolitical zones and by far outperformed previous governments in all ramifications.
    The issue of ethnicity and religious divide arose from APC who wants to form the Nigerian version of Muslim Brotherhood with the sole aim of Islamizing Nigeria.
    Guilty people always point the first accusing finger.
    GEJ till 2019

    • blueeyedkitten

      anybody that leaves your party, you insult them. why? dont people have freedom of association any more? its this your draconian approaches to issues and your favourability for criminals over the founding fathers of your party, that has led to all this massive defections. the real pdp is gone. thanks to jonathan, his cabal and people like you.

      Good governance in deed. Your ‘gej’ ruled for 6 years without anything to show apart from the support of the cohorts like you. Don’t you people have shame?

  • Shehu Monguno

    Ghali Umar Na’Abba sought reelection in April 2003. A few days before the election the Kano state chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Yusuf Kutamato, said he had been expelled from the PDP party due to “anti-party activities”. Na’Abba was defeated by the candidate of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANP). He denied that he had been suspended from the PDP, and said his defeat was due to a conspiracy between the police, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the state government.

    In December 2005, he formally resigned from the People’s Democratic Party, along with other members of the Movement for the Defence of Democracy including Audu Innocent Ogbeh and Abubakar Rimi. Later, he joined the Action Congress (AC) party, led by former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.

    In 2007, the leadership of Action Congress rejected his bid to be their candidate for governor of Kano State. He then returned to the PDP. In
    August 2009, Ghali Na’Abba was among former and current leaders who established the Coalition of Democrats for Electoral Reform initiative in an attempt to push through reforms to the 1999 constitution, a difficult task requiring 2/3 majorities in both houses.

    Naaba who?
    Another thing, I thought the credentials the opposition APC capitalized on to push GMB were mainly tribe and religion disguised under cries of Insecurity and Anti corruption, which the vast majority of GMB’s supporters don’t even understand and can’t relate with.
    We’re not deceived. Naaba should please tell us his real reasons.

    • ICC Hague

      Even the chairman People Demon Party Muazu said PDP is full of injustice, how do you expect PDP that has not done justice to their members, to do justice to Nigerians. No body will remain in PDP before the election , may be only GEJ and Lady hippo.

  • Ette

    All well meaning Nigerians must distance themselves from the wicked GEJ and PDP for destroying our beloved country. We know that election in first term is usually costly and for second term your achievements should earn votes for you. GEJ’s PDP and his unbridled corruption will kill Nigeria if he is allowed to rig himself back to power as he will spend the next 4 years stealing to recover all the bribe money he has dished out to buy or rig the election. Let us vote against this wickedness and stand to ensure our votes count. God bless Nigeria.

  • Clay

    No PDP dumped you. If you had collected the party’s gubernatorial ticket you wouldn’t be saying this. Another failed and aggrieved politician without relevance.

  • Gbenizibe Amachree

    Resign quietly and stop whipping up religious and ethnic sentiments after all you have been up there ever since with no memorable achievement to your credit,If you think you timed your action to see the downfall of GEJ,you failed.

But you can’t stop the divine mandate!! GEJ all the way
