Former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, on Friday, announced her defection from the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) to the the PDP, the party she left to join APGA back in June this year.
Oduah who is the senator representing Anambra North Federal Constituency at the National Assembly stated that her reasons for joining APGA in the first place was due to her believe that the party had ideological leanings towards Igboland but to her surprise, she found that what was on ground was not what is being perceived by those outside the party.
Her statement reads:
“Politics has always been about ideology and delivering service to the people for me, because I believe leadership is all about solving problems,” she said in a statement released by her media office on Friday.
“Political platforms must afford members unfettered opportunity to participate in the electoral process and to solve the problems of their community, constituency and state.
“I joined APGA because I thought it had sound ideological leanings native to Igboland. But my ideological expectations were a mirage.
I discovered that internal democracy, which will guarantee justice, fairness and equity, was also not in practice in the party.
“After due consultations and with respect to my religious beliefs, I announce that PDP remains the vehicle through which I will keep fulfilling my mandate to the people of Anambra North.
