Why speaking on the defection which was announced on Facebook she stated that she was simply 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.”
