Etang Umoyo, the member representing Eket Senatorial District of Akwa Ibom State, at the National Assembly, Abuja, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All progressives Congress, APC on Wednesday.
Etang told reporters that the seed of disintegration of the PDP in the state was sowed during the December 2014 governorship primaries of the party.
According to him,
“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”
