Emeka Ihedioha dumps PDP after 26 years



Emeka Ihedioha, has announced his resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party he says he since its inception in 1998.

The ex-deputy speaker, House of Representatives, who ascribed himself as one of the founding members of the PDP, cited the party’s inability to carry out internal reforms and provide credible opposition as the reasons behind his decision.

In a statement on Tuesday titled “Resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party,” Ihedioha reflected on his long-standing commitment to the party’s development and transformation.

“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,” the statement reads. 

“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. 

However, I 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.”

The politician is yet to make known his next line of action.
