Victor Udofia, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member representing Ikono State Constituency in the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly has dumped the party.

The defection is contained in a letter sent to the PDP State Chairman, Paul Ekpo and signed by the lawmaker himself and made available to journalists in Uyo on Thursday.

Mr Udofia, who did not state the party he’s defecting to or give reason for his defection, thanked the PDP for the opportunity granted him while he was in the party.

“I present to you highest compliments and wish by this communication to formally offer to you my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

“I joined the PDP and remained with it against all odds with the belief that the party will be fair to all and reward individual sacrifice.

“As I exit the PDP at this point in time, I wish to thank the party for availing me the platform upon which I am currently serving this state in the honoured capacity of member of the House of Assembly,” Mr Udofia said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Udofia is the fifth lawmaker to have defected from the PDP.
