Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State, yesterday, accused Senator Grace Bent of anti-party activities following her defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party’s organising secretary, Hamza Madagali, told newsmen that the former senator developed thick skin against the PDP’s ethics two years ago, after she lost to Senator Binos Dauda Yero during primaries to represent southern senatorial zone.
Madagli stressed that it has been long when she (Bent) lost political value in the state, which made Governor Ahmed Fintiri out of sympathy facilitated the position of Board of Trustees (BoT) member at the national level for her.
However, Madagali said it was sad for a political party to loss a member to another party but admitted that the former senator’s contribution in the party was mainly for her personal interest.
‘’Senator Bent dominated her zone for personal interest as a result we lost good hand like Mr Filex Tangwami from the zone.
“Since 2019 when Bent lost out to Sen Binos Dauda, she had never participated in any political function as BoT member from the state.
“She has been destroying PDP for the last two years and therefore the PDP has no regret over her defection,” he said.
Bent during her defection said she has open a new chapter in her political career, and attributed the massive defection to APC to the popularity of the party.
“The massive infrastructure and solid democratic credentials being rooted by the party was its major selling point for APC”, she said.
