JUST IN: Former Imo state governor Emeka Ihedioha resigns from PDP



Emeka Ihedioha, the former governor of Imo State, has tendered his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), citing a misalignment between his personal beliefs and the current trajectory of the main opposition party.

In a letter addressed to the PDP chairman in Mbutu Ward, Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area of the state, Ihedioha expressed his commitment to advancing democracy and good governance in Nigeria despite his decision to step away from the PDP.

Having been a member of the party since its inception in 1998, Ihedioha highlighted his significant contributions to the growth and evolution of the PDP. However, he lamented recent developments within the party, stating that it has deviated from its core principles.

The former governor voiced concerns over the PDP’s inability to enact internal reforms, uphold its regulations, and effectively oppose the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

In his resignation letter, Ihedioha stated, “Regrettably, in recent times, the party has taken on a path that is at variance with my personal beliefs.

“Despite my attempt to offer counsel, the party is, sadly, no longer able to carry out internal reforms, enforce its own rules or offer credible opposition to the ruling All Progressives Congress.”

“I am compelled to offer my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party effective immediately,” Ihedioha added. “While the decision was difficult to take, I, however, believe that it is the right one.

“Despite this resignation, I will always be available to offer my services towards the deepening of democracy and good governance in Nigeria.”
