Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma Egba yesterday petitioned the national leadership of the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP asking for the immediate dissolution of the Cross River State executive and called on the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to take over all other processes relating to the outstanding aspects of the party’s activities.

Ndoma Egba, in the petition to the national leadership of the party, accused the Cross River State executive under the chairmanship of Ntufam John Okon, of instigating the sealing of state party headquarters ahead of the party’s delegate elections which scuttled the election of national delegates in the state.

According to the petition addressed to the national chairman of PDP, Dr Adamu Mu’azu, and dated November 10, 2014, Ndoma Egba alleged that “Mr. Chairman, in spite of his premature celebration, it is obvious that the state chairman is clearly disappointed by the outcome of the November 1, 2014 ward congresses in Cross River State followed by his ineptitude in not taking advantage of the appeal process already put in place by the party.

“To demonstrate his frustrations, he detained members of the panel that came to conduct the November 8, 2014 national delegates elections.”

But Okon has described Ndoma-Egba’s petition, calling for the dissolution of the executive committee of the party in the state as mere grandstanding.

According to the state PDP chairman, the leadership of the party in the state will not sit by while a few moneybags subvert the will of party members as expressed in the ward congress.

He said the disciplinary actions taken against some members of the party were taken by the full executive committee of the party.

He said, “After the ward congresses, an element of criminality was introduced into the exercise when the results of the exercise were switched to favor some moneybags against the will of majority of our party members.

“We found out that some people had compromised the system, and as such needed to act swiftly to instill discipline. The question is who are those that perpetrated this fraud and then rushed to court to obtain an injunction to prevent the party from looking into the matter?

“Everybody in Cross River witnessed the congresses and know what the outcome was. We are merely resisting attempts by a few people to subvert the will of our party members.”

He said the Senate Leader can write as many petitions as he wants, but he won’t fool the National Leadership of the party who already know what transpired during the ward congresses.

  • Ndoma egba should go and sleep. 16yrs in d senate and u want 20. are u d only cross riverian????

  • When would our people be really tired of living lives of toys. Must they always they always choose who becomes what are d peril of the masses? Indeed, I am dissappointed at the person of the State Party chairman, still ready to be used to perpetuate the wicked acts. Thank God this time it is not going to b a TEA PARTY 4 for them. Crossivarians will resist it this time.

  • My position is that Ndoma Egba should start coming home. There is no democratic dividend from him. Check out the state of Ogoja-boki-Ikom-Obubra-Yakurr highway. Ndoma Egba should start coming home Period

  • Can someone tell victor to close his mouth, in 2011 how did he win the primaries against Patrick iwara was it not substitution? How did he forge result sheets at the collation centres? Who does he think he is fooling , the tables have turned against him now he wants the exco dissolved, balderdash. It serves both parties right for the PDP it’s only a case of homecoming roosters.. However for those in the field in 2011 we know that victor cannot win without state backing, not even in akparabong where he comes from which begs the question why is he even bothering himself?

  • Desmond ikuma joseph

    Who is ntufam okon to chalenge ndoma ebga imoka era has fallen and GJA will win the election if not we crossriverian wount alow them to impose thier erand boy on us

  • It is bad to be ill at ease. An empire has fallen for another to rise. The so called family has gone extinct. Resign now Mr. John Okon. You announced to Nigerians that the process was free and fair, you also told Crossriverians that Jeddy Agba is not a member of PDP, why will you now query the process and suspend Agba. I have learnt to work with very upright and sound minds instead of thinking of putting someone i think would be toyed around. Let’s rise and put back our dear state in the road map of our dear country. Arise, Arise, O my people.

    • My friend, well said. The more they try the more the lose the people’s mandate. It’s sad really.

      Those of us who know the truth should not hesitate to let our voices be heard because what they are doing and what they plan to do is nothing short of dark arts.
