BREAKING: Former Imo Gov Ihedioha dumps PDP

Former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha, has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

 

The ex-governor announced his resignation in a letter dated April 23 addressed to the PDP chairman at Mbutu Ward, Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State, reports TheNiche.

 

Ihedioha, also a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, said the PDP had in recent times taken on a path that disagrees with his beliefs.

 

Ihedioha distances self from trending article, “The Tragedy Called Imo State.”

 

His letter read, “Since 1998, I have contributed my quota to the development and transformation of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as one of the founding members. All these years, I have taken pride in the fact that the PDP is a party that will always look inward for internal reforms and provide credible leadership for the people, whether in power or outside power. I have had the benefit of serving and benefitting from the party at various levels.

 

“Regrettably, in recent times, the party has taken on a path that is at variance with my personal beliefs. Despite my attempts 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 (APC).

 

“It is in the light of the foregoing, that I am compelled to offer my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party effective immediately. While this 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.”
