Stella Oduah, a former Minister of Aviation and senator representing Anambra North in the National Assembly, has left the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) just three months after joining the party.
However, she has announced a return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party she left in June, saying she was wrong to think APGA had ideological leanings to Igboland.
“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. Thank you.”
