Former governorship aspirant and chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, Ken Imasuagbon, has resigned his membership from the party.
In a letter sent to the chairman of the party in the state, Tony Aziegbemi, Imasuagbon was silent on his reasons for quitting the PDP.
The letter read in part, “Since 2009 in what was tagged the ‘Ewohimi Declaration’ when I joined the PDP has remained a memorable journey for me and I want to thank God almighty for his benevolence.
“The course of my political journey in the PDP had afforded me the opportunity to make great and wonderful friends and had shared great moments with which I will cherish for a lifetime.
“However, the reality of the moment has made it decisive that there comes a time in a man’s life when he has to move ahead. Consequently, therefore, I hereby tender my resignation from the membership of the People’s Democratic Party. Once again, I thank the entire leadership and body of the PDP.”
He went on to thank the entire body and leadership of the PDP, describing his experience as memorable.
Imasuagbon had been in the governorship race since 2007 having worked assiduously for the PDP and later the Grace Group, the PDP faction that thereafter metamorphosed into Action Congress, Action Congress of Nigeria and later the All Progressives Congress.
