Emeka Ihedioha, the former Governor of Imo State, paid a visit to Governor Alex Otti of Abia State on Sunday, April 28th.

Ihedioha, who recently resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was seen at Governor Otti’s residence in Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South.

Governor Otti is the only Labour Party Governor in the South East and the entire country. As a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ihedioha was warmly received by his host during his private visit.

According to a source from the Government House, the two later had a closed-door meeting.

Although the agenda of their meeting was not disclosed, analysts speculate that it may be related to the political situation in Imo State and the possibility of Ihedioha joining the Labour Party.

Last week, Ihedioha resigned from the PDP due to the controversy surrounding the position of the National Secretary of the party.

Recall that Emeka Ihedioha, a previous governor of Imo State, has officially resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

In his resignation letter, which was directed to the PDP chairman in Mbutu Ward, Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area of the state, Ihedioha explained that his decision was driven by a misalignment between his personal beliefs and the current direction of the main opposition party.

Despite his departure from the PDP, the former governor emphasized his unwavering commitment to promoting democracy and good governance in the country.

Ihedioha highlighted his significant contributions to the party’s growth and development since its establishment in 1998.

However, he expressed disappointment with recent developments within the PDP, stating that it has strayed from its fundamental principles. Specifically, he raised concerns about the party’s failure to implement internal reforms, adhere to its regulations, and effectively challenge the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

“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 the 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”, the letter added.
