Former Senate Majority Leader, Ndoma-Egba dumps PDP


A former Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party.

Ndoma-Egba in a resignation letter he personally signed and addressed to the PDP Chairman in his Akparabong Ward of Ikom Local Government Area of Cross River State, on Wednesday, highlighted some reasons which forced him out of the former ruling party.

The senator, who represented Cross River-Central senatorial district in the Senate from 2003 to 2015, was elected on the platform of the PDP.
In his resignation letter, Ndoma-Egba noted that the current policies and direction of the PDP had become inconsistent with his philosophy and commitment to democratic principles and that he could no longer pursue his “political beliefs in the party in its current state.”

The former Senate Leader said, “I returned to politics to pursue certain ideals and values, to contribute towards strengthening democracy, to give a voice to my people, a people who have been most kind and generous to me.”

“Before, PDP was strong in Cross River State because it offered members an atmosphere and opportunity for self expression within its confines. Today, those values that underline democracy have totally become strange to the party.

“I, therefore, resign my membership of the PDP forthwith and urge you to take the necessary steps to reflect this in your records,” he added.
