The Director General of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Osaro Onaiwu, has resigned. His resignation was contained in a letter to the chairman of the Forum and governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko.
According to the letter, Oniawu hinged his resignation on the desire to pursue other endeavors. Mr. Onaiwu was a governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party but failed to participate in the party primaries that held on Monday in Benin City.

The primaries produced Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as its flag-bearer for the September 10 governorship poll.
Mr. Onaiwu’s resignation letter reads: “Unto every time there is a season, and in line with this Biblical truth, I wish to inform His Excellency of my resignation, effective June 21, 2016 as the Director General of the PDP Governors Forum.
“I am persuaded to call it quits in order to pursue my future endeavour in other capacity.
“During my years as DG of the Forum, I am consoled by the fact that my loyalty, competence and service was at no time in doubt, therefore will be leaving with gratitude.
“I wish to thank His Excellency and all his brother governors, present and former, for their support during my term as DG and wish the Forum the best.
“I profoundly thank His Excellency, Dr. Bukola Saraki, President of the Senate, who gave me the initial opportunity at the Nigeria Governors Forum, as well as their excellencies, former Governor Jonah Jang and Godswill Akpabio, who led the NGF and PDP Governors Forum at different times for their support and confidence”.
A source close to Mr. Onaiwu hinted that he might pick the nomination form of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, on Tuesday in Abuja, to enable him contest the forthcoming guber polls on the party’s platform.
