Ihedioha, Onwubuariri, Others Resign Membership of the PDP

Former Governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha has resigned from the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, citing that the party took a route which was against his personal beliefs.

In the statement signed on the 25th of April, 2024, he stated that despite counsels, the party can no longer carry out internal reforms, enforce its laws or stand as a major opposition to the All Progressive Congress, APC.

His statement reads; “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 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.

“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.”

Meanwhile, Ihedioha who is a chieftain of the PDP in Imo State was not the only member who resigned from the party, Honourable Onwubuariri Kingsley Obinna and Barrister Chris Okewulonu resigned their membership of the party through their ward chairman in Isiala Mbano LGA and Obowo LGA respectively.

Ihedioha’s resignation comes days after the PDP NEC appointed former Senate President Bukola Saraki as Chairman of, the PDP Reconciliation Committee.
