A former governorship aspirant and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Barrister Ken Imansuangbon has resigned his membership of the party.
The Edo politician, in a press statement, thanked the leadership of the PDP and its entire body, describing his experience as memorable.
“Since 2009 in what was tagged the ‘Ewohimi Declaration’ where I had joined the People’s Democratic Party, 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 where he has to move ahead.
“Consequently, therefore I hereby tender my resignation of the membership of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP. Once again, I thank the entire leadership and body of the PDP”.
Recall that, Imansuangbon who is known for his free rice distribution every December in the state, joined the governorship race since 2007 in the PDP. He later left for the Action Congress now known as All Progressive Congress (APC), before returning to the PDP.
He has consistently contested for governorship in Edo State and was prevailed upon to step down in 2020.
