The Immediate past leader of the senate Victor Ndoma Egba has publicly declared his movement from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) CrossRiverWatch can authoritatively report.

A member of the 5th, 6th and 7th Senate, Ndoma Egba’s move puts to bed months of speculations about his movement to the opposition party in Cross River State following his supporters move to the APC earlier this year.

At an event held at the APC state secretariat located along Marian road in Calabar, the erstwhile lawmaker who represented the central senatorial district in the red chambers of the national assembly for twelve years said “I came to reciprocate the various courtesy calls paid to me by the Chapter Chairmen of the APC from the ward level to the national body of the party and to tell you that I want to formally join the APC family.

“For a long time, it was said that Cross River State was a one party state. For a long time it was, but it is no longer tenable today, because the action of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) created a large pool of IDPs (Internally Displaced Politicians) who still have political life in them and must continue in politics. So the IDPs must find a platform to carry on with their politics.

“As we continue consultations with you, I want to assure you that we are aware the party has a constitution and we must be bound by it. We want to come to the party with values of integrity, fair competition and a level playing ground.

“Fortunately PDP has given a template of what should not be done, that impunity is not sustainable. They have had to pay a high price for impunity. Whether they have learnt lessons from their impunity is what I don’t know…”
