Why I dumped PDP after 26 years – Emeka Ihedioha | Read Details

Former Imo state governor, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, CON, has resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after twenty six years.

a party he says he has been associated with since its inception in 1998.

Ihedioha in a statement issued on Tuesday, April 23, 2024, cited the party’s inability to carry out internal reforms and provide credible opposition as the reasons behind his decision.

The statement titled “Resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party,” Ihedioha said:

“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.”

“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,”.
