Former DFP Chairman resigns

The former Chairman of the Democratic Freedom Party (DFP), Alhllji Abdul Rahman Isakah, has resigned from the party.

"My reasons for resigning from the DFP are personal. This decision does not, however, imply that I have resigned from active politics," he said in statement to the press.

Alhaji Isakah, who said his future political activities would be communicated to the general public at a later date, thanked the DFP, the media and the general public for the support and the opportunity given him.

Alhaji Isakah was the interim National Chairman of the DFP and also contested the flagbearership position of the party, losing to the current DFP flag-bearer, Mr Emmanuel Ansah-Antwi.

Later in an interview with the Daily Graphic, Alhaji Isakah said currently he was consulting with his followers in the DFP on the next step to take but added that there was no problem between him and other members of the party.

He, however, ruled out any move to lure his following to also resign en bloc with him.

He said he had remained inactive since the party's congress because he realiscd that his oil marketing business "was going down".
