Senator Florence Ita-Giwa on Thursday made a dramatic return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party she left barely a year ago for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ita-Giwa announced her return to PDP, which she calls her original home, in Calabar, Cross River State.
Ita-Giwa, who was a onetime Senate Deputy Minority Leader in a statement said that in her over three decades in politics, she has not see the kind of confusion she met in APC inspite of the kind of forthright President the party produced in 2015 in the person of Mohammadu Buhari and an intelligent Vice President, Prof Osibanjo.
She noted that recent activities in the APC is nothing but complete confusion.
“I cannot understand why out of sheer negligence party will not be able to present candidates for elections in several key states nationwide.
“I cannot understand how any party will have in its ranks popular and trusted leaders who can muster tremendous goodwill for the party and yet treats them with disdain.”
She said the APC is factionalised beginning from the ward to the national level which shows how incapable for it to organise itself and get ready to win an election and for that reason, she would prefer to swim or sink with her original home, the PDP.
Ita-Giwa, known as Mama Bakasi, said: “The experience of the supposed recent direct primaries was also a taste of sour experience where factional interests simply allocated figures and manipulated same as votes after shutting out other aspirants in the race.”
According to her, the fictionalisation affected her ward and local government area where the party is grappling with the problem of proper resettlement of the people and there are divisions in the party which shows it can never make headway or win the PDP.
She called on her supporters to join her as she returns to the PDP and ensure victory for the party at all levels.
