The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State has continued to hemorrhage due to loss of members. Few weeks after Senator Matthew Urhoghide dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC), a former Minister for State, Defense, Arch Mike Onolememen has resigned his membership from his Esan North East chapter of the party.

His decision is contained in a letter released today, September 25, 2023 and addressed to Mr. Michael Eromonsele, Ward 4 Chairman in Esan North East Local Government Area.

“I’m writing to formally inform you and the People’s Democratic Party that I’m resigning my membership of the party with immediate effect.

“After carefully analyzing the protracted conflict in the party and consulting with relevant stakeholders from my immediate constituency, political allies, friends, and family, this decision was made.

I’d like to use this medium to express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me since I joined the party in 1998.”

Midwest Herald can authoritatively report that, several other foundation leaders and members of the PDP are in their departure lounges waiting to dump the party for similar reasons. Others cited the lack of level playing field that no longer exist in PDP.
