Ibinabo Fiberesima dumps PDP for APC after losing LG chairmanship ticket
Ibinabo Fiberesima, former president of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), shocked many of her fans and followers, when she announced that she has joined the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday.
This new move may not be unconnected with her failure to secure the party’s ticket to contest the Rivers State local government election in 2018.
the 46-year-old had sought to contest for the chairmanship of Okrika Local Government but she was made to step down for someone.
Ibinabo made the announcement of her defection in a Facebook post, where stated that she was exercising her constitutional right to freedom of association.
“I am one that has respected and enjoyed such rights especially making use of such association for the furtherance of my aforementioned goals and objectives,” she said.
“I strongly believe that associations must foster accommodation and value for those within it. It must appreciate efforts and risks taken to sustain that association and when it seems that one has been relegated to the point of redundancy and lack of mutual respect in spite of herculean efforts thereto, it then sadly signals a time to say goodbye and accept the recognition offered by another platform.”
