Updated: Ihedioha pulls out of Imo gubernatorial race


Former governor of Imo State who was unceremoniously booted out of office by the Supreme Court, Emeka Ihedioha, has announced his official withdrawal from the Imo State Peoples Democratic Party governorship race.

Ihedioha disclosed this in a letter addressed to the suspended former National Chairman of the party, senator Iyiorchia Ayu, on Tuesday.

He said, “As I turned 58 years last Friday, March 24, I had cause to reflect on so many things, including the state of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)

“Having been a member since its formation in 1998, I align myself with the request made by our state chapter to the National Working Committee (NWC) for a consensus choice of the candidate regarding the 2023 Governorship primaries.

“In the interest of harmony and unity of the Party, I have elected to make the personal sacrifice of withdrawing from further participation in the processes leading to the emergence of the gubernatorial candidate.

“This decision was not taken lightly. My commitment to the service of our people has never been in doubt.
