The senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, is set to defect to the All Progressives Congress.
A source close to the senator disclosed this to PREMIUM TIMES.
The source said the senate leader was only counting days to his defection.
In what may look like a prelude to the much expected defection, supporters of the senate leader, Thursday, invaded the APC state headquarters along Barracks Road in Calabar to announce their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party.
The defectors, led by the Campaign Director of the Senate leader, Ernest Irek, and immediate past Chairman of Obubra LGA, Chris Obasse, included former councillors and other top public office holders.
They said, tired of oppressive leadership, their mission was to join hands with the APC to form a formidable force against the PDP.
When contacted the senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, said, he was not ready to go into details.
“Anybody or people are free to crosscarpet to any party he/she may feel okay with,” he said. “It’s their right.”
PDP in the state has been struggling with internal rancour since the last primaries, leading to the defection of prominent party faithful.
