Former governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha, has officially resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), according to a letter sighted by Ejes Gist News.

In a letter dated April 23, delivered to the PDP headquarters on the same day, Ihedioha, a longstanding ally of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, emphasized that his resignation from the PDP aligns with his principles.


Addressed to his ward chairman in Mbutu, Aboh-Mbaise LGA, and copied to the national chairman of PDP, chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, and PDP chairman in Imo state, the letter was succinctly titled: “Resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party”.

In the letter, Ihedioha stated, “Since 1998, I have contributed my quota to the development and transformation of the Peoples 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.”


He continued, “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.”

Concluding his statement, Ihedioha expressed, “It is in the light of the foregoing that I am compelled to offer my resignation from the Peoples 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.”


Rt. Hon Emeka Ihedioha’s departure marks a notable shift in the political landscape, with implications for both the PDP and the broader Nigerian political scene.
