According to the APC chieftain, the decision is informed by the fact that the party no longer offers her the avenue to keep promoting political participation.

She pointed at worsening security, the terrible economic crisis across Nigeria, and the leadership unrest in the APC as occurrences that corroborate her position.

Speaking further on her decision, she noted:

I fully identify with the philosophy of politics being about the local context, and will rather opt for a platform that has demonstrated commitment to the overall interest of the local context.

“I hold no grudge against any individual, for what they did or failed to do, while my membership of the APC lasted. This is not about me, it is about the people.
