Just In: Cosmos Ndukwe, Former Presidential Aspirant, Quits PDP

Dr. Cosmos Ndukwe, a former presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has announced his resignation from the party, adding to the gale of defections from the South East region. Ndukwe, a prominent figure in Abia State politics, cited personal reasons and aspirations for his decision. His departure, outlined in a letter addressed to party officials, underscores a growing trend within the PDP.

Truth Live News gathered that Ndukwe’s resignation comes amidst a series of high-profile exits, including that of former Imo State Governor, Chief Emeka Ihedioha, and over 20 key members in Imo State, including a member of the party’s Board of Trustees and zonal officers. This wave of defections signals a shifting political landscape and poses challenges for the PDP’s stronghold in the region.

In his resignation letter, Ndukwe expressed gratitude for the opportunities provided by the PDP but emphasized his belief that leaving the party is the best course of action for him at this time. His decision highlights the complexities and internal dynamics within the party, as well as the broader political climate in the South East.

The departure of such prominent figures raises questions about the future direction of the PDP in the region and its ability to retain support and cohesion among members. As Ndukwe and others seek new political paths, the repercussions of these defections are likely to reverberate across the South East, shaping the landscape for the upcoming political contests.

The PDP, faced with this wave of resignations, must navigate internal challenges and redefine its strategies to maintain relevance and competitiveness in the South East. As the region becomes increasingly pivotal in national politics, the implications of these defections extend beyond party lines, shaping the political trajectory of Nigeria as a whole.
