Ex-Edo Gov Aspirant Dumps PDP


By Nurat Uthman

A former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in Edo State,  Ken Imasuagbon, on Wednesday, resigned his membership of the PDP.

The frontline Edo politician, in a letter sent to the chairman of the party in the state, Tony Aziegbemi, and chairman of his local government, Esan South-East ward 2, was silent on his reasons for quitting the PDP.

He thanked the entire body and leadership of the PDP, describing his experience within the party as memorable.

The letter read: “Since 2009, in what was tagged the ‘Ewohimi Declaration’ where I had joined, it has been a memorable journey for me and I want to thank God Almighty for His benevolence.

“The course of my political journey in the PDP had afforded me the opportunity to make great and wonderful friends and who I shared great moments with, which I will cherish for a lifetime.

“However, the reality of the moment has made it decisive that there comes a time in a man’s life when he has to move ahead.

“Consequently, I hereby tender my resignation of the membership of the Peoples Democratic Party. Once again, I thank the entire leadership and body of the PDP.”

Recall that Imansuangbon has been in the governorship race since 2007, having worked for the PDP and later the Grace Group, the PDP faction  that thereafter metamorphosed into Action Congress, Action Congress of Nigeria and later the All Progressives Congress.

In 2020, Imasuagbon and some other aspirants stepped down for Governor Godwin Obaseki, who defected then from the APC to the PDP.
