After six months of speculation, former Senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), formally resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday.
In a resignation letter dated September 14 and personally signed and addressed to the PDP chairman in his Akparabong Ward in Ikom local government area of Cross River State, Ndoma-Egba cited factors which necessitated his exit from the party on which platform he contested election and was in the Senate for 12 years.
Ndoma-Egba represented Cross River Central senatorial district in the Senate from 2003 to 2015.
In his resignation letter, he said; “Hitherto, PDP was strong in Cross River 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”.
