Thousands of the senate leader's supporters had on Thursday, April 16, announced their intent to join the APC, saying they were tired of PDP's oppresive leadership in the state.
Following the massive defection of his supporters to the All Progressives Congress (APC), the senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, will also be pitching his tent with the soon-to-be ruling party in a matter of days, Premium Times reports.
A source close to the senate leader was quoted in the report, saying Ndoma-Egba is only counting days to his defection.
Thousands of supporters of the senate leader had on Thursday, April 16, stormed the APC state headquarters in Calabar to announce their intent to dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Muhammadu Buhari’s camp.
The defectors, led by the Campaign Director of the Senate leader, Ernest Irek, and immediate past Chairman of Obubra LGA, Chris Obasse and other, said they wanted to form a formidable alliance with the APC to submerge PDP in the state.
In reaction to his planned defection, Ndoma-Egba, who spoke to Premium Times, said he was not ready to give details.
“Anybody or people are free to crosscarpet to any party he/she may feel okay with. It’s their right,” he said.
