Florence Ita Giwa, popularly known as Mama Bakassi, has returned to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, less than a year after she left to join the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a statement made available to the media, the 72-year-old said she quit the APC because of the confusion she met in the party.
“I cannot understand why out of sheer negligence, (a) party will not be able to present candidates for elections in several key states nationwide,” she said.
“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.
“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.”
