The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo state, Charles Ezekwem, has dumped the party.
Ezekwem announced that his decision to resign from the PDP on Monday was approved by his supporters and is not unconnected to the current crises rocking the party in the state.
This reporter gathered that Ezekwem’s resignation helped him avoid a faceoff with another group in the party planning for his suspension before the state congress.
“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 regret the inconveniences the party faced. I thank the party for the support they gave me and the opportunity to serve in that capacity,” Ezekwem concluded.
The People’s Democratic Party lost the Imo North senatorial seat to All Progressives Congress in the rerun elections held on Saturday.
