As Edo indigenes clamour for the 2024 governorship ticket to be zoned to Edo central, this may not be a healthy time for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the Senatorial District to lose one of its major mobilizers, and stalwarts, Matthew Emiohe, who just announced his resignation from active politics.

Reports say the chieftains decision to quit active politics may not be unconnected with the way and manner the government dissolved the membership board of state-owned University, Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma.

But when contacted, Emiohe, told newsmen that his decision to quit was purely personal and to also enable him attend to his chain of businesses and family.

He said, ”I cannot continue like this while my family and businesses need my attention. My brother, I have had enough of insults in politics, not at my age. Just imagine the way our board was dissolved with shame. My family and business need me. I wish the PDP the best.

When asked if he may opt for the APC in future, the former politician answered on the contrary.

“APC or PDP, I’m done with politics. I just want to concentrate on my businesses. Thank you,” he said.

Emiohe, who seats atop of many business conglomerates was a member of the dissolved Ambrose Alli University Governing Board by Governor Godwin Obaseki.

The former PDP chieftain was recently honoured with the prestigious title of the ‘Itohan of Esanland.

It was further gathered that the octogenarian played a significant role in the victory of Governor Obaseki second term ambition in Esan Central Local Government Area of the state.
