OrderPaperToday – Senator Stella Oduah has returned to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the platform she was elected upon to the Senate in 2015.
This decision upturns her initial defection in June this year to the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
According to her, she believed APGA “had sound ideological leanings native to Igboland” but it was only “a mirage”.
In a statement released by her media office on Friday, the former Minister for Aviation described her move as “the beginning of a new political chapter”.
The statement read: “Politics has always been about ideology and delivering service to the people for me, because I believe leadership is all about solving problems.
“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.”
