Popular Edo state politician Charles Idahosa has officially left the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Idahosa, who was a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the PDP, announced his resignation from the party in a letter dated April 29, 2024, addressed to the Chairman of Ehor Ward 1 in Uhunmwonde Local Government Area of Edo State.

As a close ally of Governor Godwin Obaseki, Idahosa previously served as a member of the party’s BoT, representing the South South Zone, before deciding to resign.

He explained that his choice to leave the party was the result of careful thought and reflection on his personal and political journey.

Despite his resignation, the former aide to ex-Governor Adams Oshiomhole expressed gratitude to the party members for their consistent support and camaraderie during his time in service.

The resignation letter read: “I trust this letter finds you well. | am reaching out to formally announce my decision to resign from both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and my role as a member of the Board of Trustees (BoT). 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.

“I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the PDP community for their unwavering support and camaraderie during my time of service. I remain committed to upholding the values and principles that have guided my political engagement thus far. I look forward to new avenues of growth and contribution, and I extend my best wishes to the Peoples Democratic Party as it continues its important work.”
