‘PDP Got Derailed’, Akwa-Ibom Ex-Rep Eyiboh Defects from PDP to APC
The former Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Information, Media and Public Affairs, Eseme Eyiboh, has defected to the All Progressives Party (APC).
Eyiboh, in a statement in Abuja, said he decided to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because the party had breached the philosophy of its founding fathers.
The Akwa Ibom-born politician added that his decision to join the APC was predicated upon the presence of mind, ideas, capacity and character that abound in APC to drive the change that would enhance the emergence of contemporary and knowledge-based social capital and new economic order.
He said: “Having had the privilege of the membership of PDP, which platform I became its state financial secretary, executive chairman, Akwa Ibom Ethical and Attitudinal Reorientation Commission (EARCOM) and member of the House of Representatives bespeaks the foundational vision of the progenitors of PDP as a leadership recruitment nursery.
“Today, that party has conducted itself in breach of the visionary philosophy of its founding fathers.
