“Please accept the assurances of my highest regards.”
Addressing a Press Conference after she dropped her letter at the party’s secretariat in Benin, Ativie, said: “I resigned from the APC because of lack of internal democracy.
“As we speak Edo State APC has no female candidate from the Edo South Senatorial District for the State House of Assembly election in 2023. I want to tell my supporters to remain calm. In a couple of weeks. I will let the world know where I am moving to.”
In conclusion, she stated that Nigerians are tired of the old order whereby the APC and PDP hold sway. She stressed that there is a clamour for a third force to address the myriad of problems confronting the country.
