She cited her disqualification during the screening for the 2019 Taraba state governorship race by the APC National Working Committee as reason for her action.
The former Minister suspected to be loyal to ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar a leading Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said she had yet to come to terms on why she should be disqualified from the race without reasons.
She said that if the leadership of the party did not find her fit for the race she also should not be found fit to remain in APC.
Her words :“If I am not good enough to contest elections in the APC, then I feel I am not also qualified to remain a minister in the APC government”.
She, however, did not disclose her next political abode but political watchers believe she may be coasting to PDP where her political mentor, Atiku is contesting for its ticket.
