Mr Bello, who served in the assembly from 2003 to 2011, said his reason for leaving the PDP was because the party has been allegedly hijacked.

“It is my sincere belief that some elements have hijacked the rudders of the ship of the party and changed its cause to an unknown path which I am not ready to take,” Mr Bello stated in the letter without mentioning those who hijacked the party. His resignation letter was addressed to Soji Adagunodo, the PDP state chairman.
