In a report received by 9jatoday through a media, it has been affirmed that a PDP Chairman in Imo State has deliberately vacated his seat and leaves the party.
The ex-chairman, Charles Ezekwem, reportedly resigned his position and abandon the Peoples Democratic Party in the state in the letter which was addressed to the National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, dated January 25, made available to newsmen on Monday 27th January.
The letter reads in part below;
“In view of the prevailing circumstances within my party vis-à-vis my present standing as the state chairman of the PDP in Imo State and after due consultation with my family, and with the approval of my supporters, I hereby tender my resignation as the PDP chairman, Imo State, also as a member of the party in my ward in the Okigwe LGA which has been duly communicated to the ward chairman.
“I thank the teeming population of the PDP in Imo State who thoughtfully elected me as their state chairman. I sincerely regret all the inconveniences the party faced. I thank party members for the support they gave me and the opportunity to serve in that capacity.”
Though Charles did not make known his intention to join any party yet. But there are insinuations that he abandon the Peoples Democratic Party, in other for him to joins the ruling party, All Progressives Congress.
However, some persons have believed that he had resigned in order to safeguard his job as the board chairman of state government-owned Heartland FC of Owerri.
No statement however on the above insinuations is received from Charles, despite several attempts to reach him on phone for clarifications.
