Distinguished Senator Matthew Aisagbonriodion Urhoghide has given reasons for his sudden exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), today May 31, 2023.

According to the senator, he decided to quit because of what he called, “negative political energy” within the party in Edo State.

“I write to formally inform you and the entire people of Nigeria that I am resigning my membership from the Peoples Democratic Party, effective immediately.

“The difficult decision arose out of the negative political energy emanating at the moment from the irreconcilable difference and squabbles within the PDP at the national level and especially in my dear state, Edo State.

“These squabbles have spiked to levels that have made it impossible for someone like me who is a confirmed democrat to function and grow as I envisaged in my political journey.

“I am however grateful to the party which yielded me the platform to achieve the mission of serving my country as a two-term senator – which experience afforded me the opportunity to meet and work with all yiu wonderful colleagues.” The letter titled – “Notification of resignation of my membership to the PDP”, stated.

The relationship between Senator Urhoghide and a faction of the PDP in Edo State, degenerated soon after the National Assembly primaries in the state, which he lost to Mr. Matthew Iduoriyikemwen in a keenly contested race.

Urhoghide had accused the leadership of the faction, of working with his opponent to stop him from returning to the ‘red chamber’ for a record 3rd term.
