The All Progressives Congress (APC), in the Central Senatorial district of Cross River State, has announced that it has formally invited the former Leader of the Senate, Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN) and third republic governor, Mr. Clement Ebri to join the party in order to strengthen it ahead of future elections, and in the interest of the state.
Vice Chairman of the APC in the district, Hon. Cletus Obun, who made the disclosure said other heavyweight politicians from the district that have been formally invited to join the party include a former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Venezuela, Maurice Ekpang; human rights activists, Utum Eteng, and Chief Wilfred Inah.
Obun said the APC has also contacted the former Deputy National Chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), Dr. Sandy Onor; and former Chief of Staff to a former governor of the state, Dr. Alex Egbona to join the party.
Obun said though Onor and Egbona are currently pursuing their matters in the election tribunal, there is hope they will join the APC as soon as possible.
Obun’s disclosure, while addressing journalists in Calabar, came against the backdrop of the controversy surrounding the likelihood of Ndoma-Egba, Ebri and other political leaders of the state joining the APC in Cross River.
