Osagie Ize-Iyamu, a former secretary to the state government of Edo under the administration of Chief Lucky Igbinedion, who has been on suspension, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In his resignation letter dated Thursday, November 21, Ize-Iyamu stated that his leaving the party was influenced by consideration of happenings in the PDP, This Day reports.
In his letter, the former PDP bigwig said: “There are, however, many compelling reasons that have necessitated this resolution but it would be uncharitable even to throw stones at a house we once inhabited with many friends and associates.”

Ize-Iyamu added that his motivation has always been to represent the people of the state in politics and ensure that government policies are used to better the lives of the masses.
