Another member of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Etang Umoyo, has defected to the All Progressive Congress, APC.
Etang, a Third Republic Senator, a founding member of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, and the most senior politician in Esit Esit Local Government Area, says that Akwa Ibom State is moving backwards under the government of PDP.
In his statement, he explained;
“Today is just for me to officially present myself to my Ward as a member of APC but I had long abandoned a group of mafians who called themselves politicians in PDP immediately after the gubernatorial primaries in 2014 which saw to the imposition of a particular candidate against the wishes of the people.
“Today, the state is moving backwards because of that singular act of impunity,” he added.
Etang Umoyo registered with the APC in his Etebi Ward 7 on Wednesday.
