Emeka Ihedioha, the former governor of Imo State, has announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), citing ideological differences with the party’s current direction.

In a letter addressed to the chairman of his constituency, Ihedioha emphasized his unwavering commitment to democratic values and good governance in Nigeria despite parting ways with the PDP.


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

However, he expressed disappointment with recent trends within the party, stating concerns over its departure from its founding principles and its apparent struggle to implement necessary internal reforms.

Ihedioha’s decision to resign reflects his desire to maintain alignment with his personal beliefs and convictions, even if it means stepping away from the political platform he has long been associated with.

The letter reads, “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. I have had the benefit of serving and benefiting 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 the decision was difficult to take, 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.”
