The National Publicity Secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Princess Marian Tolofari, has resigned from the party.
Princess Tolofari confirmed her resignation in a letter made available to journalists in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
According to her, the resignation and defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is with immediate effect.
“This to inform the general public and the leadership of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) of my resignation from my position as the National Publicity Secretary of the SDP and my exit from the party.
“This resignation and defection is with immediate effect,” part of the statement read.
Princess Tolofari explained that her “resignation followed many months of consultation with my political leader and Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Chibuike Ameachi, and other associates on the need to return to the political tree and family for which I have been associated for many years in Rivers State in particular and in the country.
“My pursuits in the SDP had been useful but alienated me from my grassroots political movement.
“I wish to thank all those I have associated with in the SDP and wish the party well.”
