Former Enugu Senator Chukwuka Utazi Resigns from PDP, Citing Ideological Shift
Chukwuka Utazi Leaves PDP, Cites Shift in Party Ideals

Former Senator Chukwuka Utazi, who previously represented Enugu-North Senatorial District in Enugu State, has announced his departure from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) citing a departure from the party’s founding ideals as the reason for his decision.

Utazi, who served as the district’s senator from 2015 to 2023, submitted his resignation letter to Chief Robert Ezeagu, the PDP Chairman in Nkpologu Ward of Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area in Enugu State, on Sunday.

In his resignation letter, he expressed his reservations about leaving the party he had been a part of since its inception in 1998, stating, “It is with reservation that I resign my membership of the People’s Democratic Party which I had the privilege of being a foundation member at its inception in 1998.”

He went on to explain, “The reason being that those ideals that attracted me to the party have since receded into oblivion leaving me with no option but to leave and find another party that will afford me ample opportunity to operate maximally and contribute to national development.”

Utazi concluded his letter by wishing his former party colleagues well, saying, “I am therefore wishing you all well as you continue to work hard to eke out a living in the best way possible under the present circumstances. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation so far.”

While Utazi’s resignation from the PDP has been confirmed, he has not disclosed his future political plans at this time.
