APC woos former governor, others

09 September 2015, 15:16

Calabar - Apparently moving to consolidate its poaching of high profile personalities from other political parties, some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are said to have taken some strategic steps to woo a former governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke into joining the party, reports New Telegraph.

Also on the list of the APC are a former Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba and a former governor of the state in the third republic, Clement Ebri.

A delegation of members of the Cross River State Executive Council of the party, led by its Vice Chairman Central and Chairman of the Stabilization and Mobilization Committee, Obun, on Tuesday visited Ndoma-Egba to formally invite him to join the party.

Obun during the visit extolled the virtues of the former Senate Leader and stated that the APC needed men of character and integrity like him.

He said that Ndoma- Egba was top on the list of those to be wooed given the ill-treatment meted on him by Peoples Democartic Party (PDP) before the last general elections.

Responding, Ndoma-Egba said it will be the height of selfishness if did not consider the party's offer but that he will follow the necessary protocol of consulting with his supporters.
