A former governorship aspirant in Edo State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Hon. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen has resigned from the party.
In a letter of resignation addressed to his ward chairman, the former majority in the Edo state House of Assembly asserted that it was his final letter of notification of his exit from the party he has been a part and parcel of since 1998.
It could be recalled that Hon Matthew had aspired on two occasions to be governor of Edo state, he was the NDDC Commissioner representing Edo state and two time member of the house of assembly where he served as the majority leader, all as a member of the PDP.
He said it`s a decision he had to take for the interest of his family, friends and business.

On Matthew Idureyekmwen Resignation from PDP.
It is tragic that a politician that was built, nurtured and developed by PDP like Hon Matthew Idureyekmwen has decided to resign his membership of our party. Even though he is currently under suspension from our party for anti party activities, we believe he should have faced the disciplinary committee set up so that he could explain and exonerate himself. Unfortunately, he has taken the easy way out.
Our party can only come out stronger and more cohesive as we move forward with loyal, trusted and committed men and women.
We wish Hon Matthew Idureyekmwen well.
