Former Ebonyi State governor, Sam Egwu has said that aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are planning to come together to form another party.

Egwu, now a Senator representing the Ebonyi North Senatorial District, made the comments while speaking to journalists at his country home, The Guardian reports.

“Yes, some people are of the view that a new party should be formed because of the lingering crisis. But one thing I believe is that in as much as I know that forming new party may be good option because the situation we have found ourselves in our party may be difficult to come out of it in the near future, the formation may not be the best option,” he said.

“Let me tell you, this agitation for formation of new party is not only in the PDP, it is also in the APC where some leaders are not happy the way they are treated,” he added.
