John Okon, chairman of the party in the state, who stated this in Calabar on Tuesday, said there was nothing the party could have done because Ndoma-Egba has made up his mind to leave the PDP soon after he lost the last National Assembly election.
Okon insisted that the ex-Senate leader lost to a better candidate in the National Assembly election.
The PDP chairman explained that after the election, several efforts were made to reconcile Ndoma-Egba with the party, regretting that such efforts yielded no positive response
He appealed to the former Senate Leader to forget the past and return to the party as there was a mechanism in place to accommodate all aggrieved party members.
