The former Kaduna State Governor, Ramalan Yero, has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Yero served as Kaduna State governor from 2012-2015.
He was the deputy governor during the late Patrick Yakowa’s administration and took over as governor when the latter died in a helicopter crash in 2012.
Yero lost his re-election bid to former Governor Nasir El-Rufai in 2015.
He announced his resignation from the PDP in a letter addressed to the party’s leadership in the state on Saturday.
“With gratitude to Almighty Allah, I write to extend my sincere greetings and to formally inform you of my decision to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“In view of this, I hereby tender my resignation as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with effect from September 30.
“Enclosed herewith, is my membership card duly returned,” the ex-governor wrote.
