“We had a convivial discussion, even as I commend his giant strides in Abia State,” Ihedioha wrote.

The visit comes shortly after Ihedioha’s resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). In his resignation letter addressed to the PDP chairman in Mbutu Ward, Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area, Ihedioha cited a misalignment between his personal beliefs and the current trajectory of the party.

Having been a member of the PDP since its inception in 1998, Ihedioha expressed disappointment over the party’s recent developments, stating concerns about its inability to enact internal reforms and effectively oppose the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Regrettably, in recent times, the party has taken on a path that is at variance with my personal beliefs. Despite my attempt to offer counsel, the party is, sadly, no longer able to carry out internal reforms, enforce its own rules, or offer credible opposition to the ruling All Progressives Congress,” Ihedioha lamented in his resignation letter.
