Adamawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the exit of Senator Grace Folashade Jackson Bent from the party to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a movement of an empty politician to a party of no relevance in the state.
The party said the gathering of APC governors and party chieftains to receive Grace last Saturday was a camouflage move by her to blindfold them to believe that she is a politician worthy of note in Adamawa State.
The Adamawa PDP organizing secretary, Alhaji Hamza Madagali, in an interview with our correspondent said Grace defection was a welcome development, a good omen the party has been praying God to send away enemies of the party in a political dungeon where they can’t be able to come out till eternity.
He revealed that the Senator has lost popularity from her people in the Southern Senatorial zone, fell out with them in 2019 when they refused to vote her as their sole senatorial candidate despite given her the privilege to form the party exco (delegates) of the zone.
According to him, it’s unfortunate the one time Senator is “indignant and resulted in shifting blames, calling the name of Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and many party chieftains behind her political perils.”
“It is a good omen ever had by Adamawa PDP for a politician of her worth. A senator who is no longer relevant, fell out with her people and undermine the privileges she enjoyed in the party rather turned her an ingrate personally for the that made her a complete woman.
“I believe she is missing out, thank God she said PDP made her who she is, whatever and wherever she will be, it is the glory of PDP that will keep her. This is the truth she will always admit,” Hamza said.
The PDP official refuted the claims of APC chieftains during the welcoming ceremony of Grace in Yola that no prominent politician in PDP, and that bigwigs in Adamawa politics are all in APC.
He refuted that the heavyweight politicians in PDP cannot find such APC.
“We are happy she left us, gone with her political woes to APC where she can finally destroy her political ingrate attitudes,” Hamza added
