Ihedioha Moves To Join LP, Holds Discussions With Otti

Listen to article

Barely one week after resigning his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a former governor of Imo State, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, appeared to have begun moves to join the Labor Party (LP).

The Eastern Updates reports that this suspicion, however, followed his meeting with the Governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, at his Nvosi country home, on Sunday, for what pundits have described as exploratory talks before pitching his tent with the LP.

This was as another chieftain of the PDP in Edo State, and member of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), Mr. Charles Idahosa, has resigned his membership of the party.

However, Ihedioha’s visit was made known yesterday when Otti’s office released a photograph showing him with the Abia governor during the visit.

Otti is the only LP governor in Nigeria.

A two paragraph release that accompanied the photograph did not reveal the purpose of Ihedioha’s visit but only said the Abia governor received his visitor, “who was on a private visit.

“After the welcome reception, Governor Otti and his visitor retired into a closed-door meeting,” the release said.

Ihedioha is believed to be shopping for a political platform after he resigned his membership of PDP on April 23, 2024, citing the way the issue of the national secretary of the party was resolved in favour of Samuel Anyanwu.

By getting his job back as PDP National Secretary after losing the governorship poll, the structure of the party in Imo has firmly been thrust into Anyanwu’s control thereby putting his rival, Ihedioha on a very weak footing in Imo PDP.

His resignation from the party, however, opened a floodgate of resignations by his loyalists, who were party office holders from local government to national level.

It is expected that these Imo PDP chieftains and their supporters would follow Ihedioha into LP when he eventually announces his new found party.
