Resignations Rock PDP: Former Imo Governor Emeka Ihedioha’s Exit Sparks Wave of Departures

The PDP is facing a wave of resignations following the departure of former Imo State Governor, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, and over 20 key members in Imo State, including a member of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) and zonal officers.

While the exact cause of the crisis remains unclear, speculation suggests a power struggle between former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mr Nyesom Wike, could be a contributing factor.

Sources told Daily Gazette that Dr. Cosmos Ndukwe, in light of recent events, may be considering joining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to support his kinsman, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Kalu.
