Dalhatu Tafida

Founding member of the PDP and immediate past Nigeria's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Dr. Dalhatu Sarki Tafida has dumped the embattled opposition party.

Tafida, who headed victorious ex-President Goodluck Jonathan's presidential campaign in 2011, said PDP market in Nigeria's politics is over, and no sensible man will remain in a market that has closed.


The top politician, while speaking in a special BBC Hausa interview monitored in Lagos, said there is no more respect for the party across the country.

"I have decided to leave PDP, and I will not join another party. I left because there is no focus, if a market is over, a responsible man should go home. Now the market is over. It was good in the past, but now it is the worst, with impunity and confusion.

"The party has been destroyed and reduced to nothing, and I have decided to dump the party. I don't think our stay in the party is wise, because the people now abuse everyone, and no one will even listen to you."

Tafida, who is from Kaduna, also condemned the way and manner the party is being run by party leaders hurling series of insults daily and refusing counsel by respectable elders.
