Senator Florence Ita-Giwa says that she has been disconnected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) since the 2015 general elections.

Ita-Giwa made the comment following her defection from the opposition party to the All Progressives Congress (APC) last week.

“First of all, I have been emotionally disconnected from PDP long before the General Elections because of impunity and the way the party trampled upon innocent human beings and killed people’s ambitions,” she said via a post on Instagram.

“It was not about me and it’s still not about me. I even went to the then president and leader of the party and offered to resign. Secondly in all those years I held no position in that party, I was just a floor member and as such could wander away but I continued to work for the party.

“Most importantly, when I joined PDP it was called PDP, but today it is tagged after people’s names, like Markafi’s PDP or Sheriff’s PDP. Is that a political party? More to come. God bless you all,” she added.
