Idahosa: Former PDP BoT Member Quits Party, Returns To APC



Idahosa: Former PDP BoT Member Quits Party, Returns To APC

The former member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Charles Idahosa, has quit the party and returned to the All Progressives Congress (APC), News About Nigeria reports. 

He made this known while speaking at his residence, where he was received back by leaders of the party, led by the secretary of the party, Lawrence Okah, and other party leaders.

He noted that his return to the APC is to ensure victory for the APC in the September 21 governorship election in Edo State.

The former ally of Governor Godwin Obaseki also stated that one of his biggest mistakes was not allowing Obaseki to resign when he told him he was tired of the troubles he was getting from the leadership of the party led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Recall that in a letter dated April 29, 2024, Idahosa announced his decision to resign from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said that his decision to resign his membership had come after considerable contemplation and reflection on his personal and political journey.

“I am reaching out to formally announce my decision to resign from both the Peoples Democratic Party and my role as a member of the Board of Trustees. As a representative of the south-south Nigerian region, this decision comes after considerable contemplation and reflection on my personal and political journey.

“Throughout my tenure within the Peoples Democratic Party, I have been privileged to contribute to its vision and mission. However, after careful consideration, I believe it is time for me to pursue new paths and opportunities beyond the party’s confines,” he stated.

He further stated that he was looking forward to new avenues of growth and contribution and extended his best wishes to the Peoples Democratic Party as it continues its important work.

He has, however, rejoined the APC and hopes to continue to do good work in the party while contributing to its growth and development.
