Prince Diran Odeyemi, the People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) Deputy National Publicity Secretary, has withdrawn his resignation.
Odeyemi promised to work with the National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, and the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to ensure a successful National Convention, which will usher in new national officers, in a letter he wrote on Thursday.
In a letter dated August 4, 2021, Odeyemi, who was one of the seven Deputy National Officers who tendered their resignation on Tuesday, said his decision to withdraw his resignation was based on the activation of the internal method of resolving issues by party leaders across Nigeria.
“I write to withdraw my letter of resignation as our great party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary,” the letter read.
“This decision is being made in light of our leaders’ activation of the internal method of resolving issues across the country.
“I also want to state unequivocally that any embarrassment caused by the resignation is deeply regretted by the party’s leaders, members, and supporters.
“Most importantly, given that my and other members of the current National Working Committee (NWC) terms are set to expire in another three months, I believe the boat should not be rocked in any way.
“As a result, I pledge my allegiance and commitment to the party and the NWC led by Prince Uche Secondus, and I will continue to play my part in ensuring the success of the National Convention, which will usher in new national officers.
“May God grant our leaders the wisdom to guide the party’s ship to a safe harbour.
