Former Imo Governor Emeka Ihedioha has announced resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a resignation letter addressed to the PDP chairman in Mbutu Ward, Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area, Ihedioha cited personal beliefs and the party’s departure from its core principles as reasons for his decision.

Having been a member of the party since its inception in 1998, Ihedioha emphasised his significant contributions to the party’s growth and evolution over the years. 

He expressed dismay at recent developments within the PDP, stating that it has strayed from its foundational values.

He lamented the party’s inability to enact internal reforms, uphold its regulations and effectively oppose the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). 

He highlighted concerns over the party’s trajectory, expressing disappointment that despite his efforts to provide guidance, the PDP has failed to uphold its integrity and offer credible opposition.

According to him: “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.”

A former Secretary to the Government of Imo State (SGI) under Ihedioha,  Chris Okewulonu also tendered resignation to PDP chairman of Avutu ward in Obowo Local Government Area. 

He said he took the hard decision after due consultations with his family, supporters and political friends. 

My decision has not been lightly arrived at,  but was rather based on the outcome of due consultations with my family,  supporters and political friends,” he said.

He served as the SSG from June 3, 2019, to January 15, 2020. He was also Commissioner for works and Housing and Information during Ohakim administration.
