THE IMPUNITY IN AKWA IBOM APC IS SUFFOCATING – Hon Effanga
FMR. COMMISSIONER, APC CHIEFTAINS IN UYO DEFECT TO PDP
By Enwongo Akpan, Uyo | August 9, 2017.
A former Commissioner for Science and Technology Hon Samuel Effanga has led the first batch of over over 200 defectors to the Peoples Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom State, with the promise that the entire APC fold in Uyo will be emptied into the PDP in the months ahead.
In a short speech to formally announce his return to the PDP, the former Commissioner and former House of Representatives Candidate said his brief stay in the APC was filled with regret as he was shocked to find out that the impunity in APC was more suffocating than in any other party in Nigeria.
“I left the warmth of the PDP family with the hope that I was going to find more warmth in the APC only to be greeted by a high level of impunity. I want to say that I am back to the party that I truly belong to. A party that produced the present Governor who in the past two years has made impressive and result-oriented efforts in delivery on his campaign promises.”
He said the over 200 defectors who are leaders of thoughts in their various political bloc and circles have already begun the process of convincing their allies and supporters to return to the warm and beckoning embrace of the PDP in Akwa Ibom state.
