Edo Guber: Asue Ighodalo’s Campaign Council Member Dumps PDP

Ahead of the September 21 governorship election in Edo State, a member of the Asue Ighodalo Campaign Council, Prince Felix Abubakar Isuku, has resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Isuku is the latest in a long list of PDP chieftains that have dumped the party ahead of the polls.

Isuku’s resignation was contained in a letter addresed to the PDP state chairman and other relevant officials on Friday.

The three time Executive Director of Edo State Internal Revenue Service, under the current administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki and his predecessor, Comrade Governor Adams Aliu Oshiomhole, attributed his decision to the power struggle that started with the factionalization of the party in the state.

Isuku, who was before now a member of the campaign committee of PDP candidate, Ighodalo, said in the resignation letter, “I write to inform you that after extensive consultations with my enlarged political family in Owan constituency in Owan East and Owan West, I have decided to formally resign as a member of the above named party (PDP).

“The reason for my resignation is because of the high level of power struggle that started with the fractionalization of the party and metamorphosed into an unprecedented and unending faction or political divide that has continued to affect the internal politics of the party (PDP).

“Another reason is the continued megalomaniac attitude of some party leaders which cannot be over emphasized or ignored.

“I have lost interest in the leadership of the party and have as well lost confidence in the ability of the party to win any credible elections.

“Before now, I was the PDP Leader of Wards 3 and 4 of Ihievbe, as well as one of the foremost Leaders of PDP in Owan East and West Local Governments.

“I also was a three time Executive Director of Edo State Internal Revenue Service under the current administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki and his predecessor the then Revered Comrade Governor Adams Aliu Oshiomhole.

“I have worked tirelessly for the PDP using my personal resources and influence to wholeheartedly support the party at all times especially during electoral processes.

“However my interests and ideologies are no longer aligned with that of the party as a house divided against itself can never stand, hence my resignation.

“Kindly consider this as my resignation from every party responsibility henceforth including my service as a member of the campaign committee for Dr Asue Ighodalo.”
