Ex-Rep, Eseme Eyiboh, dumps PDP, joins APC

Eseme Eyiboh

A top chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, in Akwa Ibom State, Eseme Eyiboh, on Sunday announced his resignation from the party.
Mr. Eyiboh who made this known in a statement to PREMIUM TIMES, said he will officially join the All Progressives Congress on January 6.
As a member of the PDP, he said he was the party’s financial secretary in the state, executive chairman, Akwa Ibom Ethical and Attitudinal Reorientation Commission, and later a member of the House of Representatives.
According to him, his progress indicated the foundational vision of the progenitors of PDP as a leadership recruitment nursery.

But currently, he said, the PDP has breached the philosophy of its founding fathers by nurturing economic choristers who he said have converted the state’s commonwealth into their pockets.
“Its (PDP) present system has produced unprecedented crop of political ‘dealers’ instead of inspirational leaders occasioning the increasing deficit in revenue yielding assets and sundry incentives to trigger community growth and prosperity,” Mr. Eyiboh said.

“It is worthy to note that, as the reign of this development eclipse, poor ethical integrity and deteriorating institutions subsist, it is imperative for people with development orientation and appropriate mindset to come together and inject a new deal to stimulate the collective urges and aspirations of our people with functional confidence.
“I have, therefore, taken the hard choice of resigning from the Peoples Democratic Party and in preference for the platform of All Progressive Party where I hope to further my contributions to the development of the state and Nigeria.”

Mr. Eyiboh said the decision is predicated on the massive presence of people with ideas, capacity and character in the APC, who he said are capable of driving sustainable change in the state.

      The problem with people like Eyiboh is that they don’t understand that in Nigeria politics once you are out of office you can’t influence anything. Since 1999 he’s been doing the things he’s complaining about because he’s being holding one form of office or another, and now that he’s out of office he’s moaning.

  • Say the truth

    It is the season and it’s the thing in vogue join them. Ita Enang is already employed so don’t waste time. When they deny you ticket for the next election you will still sing another song. A typical Nigerian politician stands for no principle but butter on the bread. He can’t survive the next four years without cake so he had to take ‘hard and difficult decision’ to jump into APC’s boat because that is where it’s happening at the central.
