Former Senate leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba has described the overwhelming victory of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the last general elections as “a victory for Nigerians.”
Senator Ndoma-Egba while reacting to criticism trailing his defection to the APC said Nigerians had been liberated from the jugular grip of PDP.
He disclosed that the woeful performance of his former party in the general elections was a clear indication that PDP had been rejected by the people.
The former Senate leader, who represented Cross River Central and whose forth term bid was frustrated by the PDP, said with the emerging political scenario, Cross River was no longer a one-party state as taunted by the party.
According to him, ‘They (PDP) said Cross River was a one party state; this is no longer tenable. PDP) created a large pool of internally displaced politicians who still have political life in them and they are paying dearly for it.
“Fortunately, PDP has given a template of what should not be done, that impunity is not sustainable. They paid a high price for impunity and whether they have leant lessons from their impunity is what I do not know.”
Justifying his decision to dumped his former party, Ndoma-Egba said “we want to join (APC) in offering the people of Cross River a choice as the so-called one party state is no longer tenable.”
The former Senate leader noted that “our desire is to be able to give the people of the state a choice because politics is about choices.”
