There's quite a political shake-up happening in Abia State. The departure of both the former First Lady, Mrs. Odochi Orji, and her son, Chinedum Orji, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could indeed signal a significant shift in the state's political landscape. Their decisions to leave the party may have far-reaching implications, especially considering their prominence within the party and their familial ties to Senator Theodore Orji, who previously held a significant political position in the state.

Their resignations, particularly citing personal reasons, leave room for speculation about their future political affiliations. Given the familial connection and the recent departure of Chinedum Orji, it wouldn't be surprising if Mrs. Odochi Orji aligns herself with her son's new political party, although it's unclear which party that might be at this point.

These moves underscore the fluidity and complexity of Nigerian politics, where individual loyalties and alliances can shift over time, often driven by personal, familial, or strategic considerations.

A copy of her resignation letter sighted by Vanguard in Umuahia read:”I write to formally resign as a member of the PDP with effect from this day 21st of May 2024 for personal reasons.

“Thank you for your support during my tenure as the First Lady of Abia and until date a strong supporter of the party. I wish you all the best.”

She copied the Abia State Chairman of PDP as well as the Acting National Chairman of the party.

It is not yet clear if her husband and former Governor who ruled most of his eight years under the platform of the PDP, and also went to the Senate for another eight years under PDP platform, would also quit the Big Umbrella.

When contacted, Senator Orji’s Aide and former Chief Liaison Officer, Hon. Ifeanyi Umere, confirmed that the former First Lady had resigned from the PDP.

He, however, she did not give any further details.

The PDP in the South East, has been hit by a wave of resignation in the recent times since after the former Governor of Imo State Chief Emeka Ihedioha, quilted the party.
