The Imo state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Charles Ezekwem, has dumped his party, PDP.
In his resignation letter on Monday in Owerri, Ezekwem said his decision to abandon PDP, was based on the approval of his supporters and the circumstances facing his party.
Meanwhile, there were indications that his resignation was to avoid a plot by a clique in his party, PDP, planning for his suspension ahead of this year’s party congress, as report emerged that Ezekwem has not been a supporter of Emeka Ihedioha, even before the 2019 governorship primaries of the party.
However, as at press time, Ezekwem has not officially announced his move to another political party. But he could be tilting towards the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“In view of the prevailing circumstances within my party, vis-a-vis my present standing as the state chairman of the PDP, in Imo state, and after due consultations with my family and with the approval of my supporters.
“I hereby tender my resignation as state chairman of PDP, Imo state and as a member of the party in the ward of Okigwe LGA, which has been duly communicated to the ward of Okigwe LGA.
“I thank the teeming population of Imo state PDP, who thoughtfully elected me as their state chairman. I sincerely regretted the inconveniences the party faced. I thank the party for the support they gave me and the opportunity to serve in that capacity.”
