Plot to weaken Ihedioha’s grip on Imo PDP thickens

0

There is an ongoing plot in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Imo State, to break the firm grip of the party from former Governor Emeka Ihedioha.

At the forefront of the move include a Senator, some ex members of the House of Representatives, and other top politicians of PDP extraction from the state.

Last week, the some stakeholders in the party had called on Senator Ezenwa Onyewuchi, who represents Owerri zone in the senate to take over the leadership of the party. The Senator turned down the offer, and insisted that Ihedioha remains leader of the party.

Another round of fresh move is in top gear, as those advancing the move, have engaged some national leaders of the party and were talked to “provide a level playing ground for all in the party in the state” by cancelling the ward and local government congresses in the party which had favoured Ihedioha. The latter’s loyalists control the wards and Local Government chapters of the party in the State.

It was gathered that one of the PDP Governors from the South- South is said to be aiding these group of politicians after they expressed misgivings on the manner the process was being hijacked solely by Ihedioha.

Also, some political actors in the APC in the State who are displeased with Governor Hope Uzodinma’s reluctance to accommodate them in his government, are weighing options of crossing over to the PDP. They have aligned with these new emerging group in the party. They also yearn for a level playing ground.

A chieftain of the party who is part of the group said “the moves are ongoing and it is all geared at making the PDP in Imo State stronger , greater and a level playing ground created all for genuine lovers of the party.

“The party has to be opened up for others to come in and have a stake. It cannot continue to be a one man property. If it remains so, failure stares it on the face in 2023.
