APC lauds senator Effiong’s defection
The South-South Zonal Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared that the decision by Senator Nelson Effiong (Akwa Ibom South Senatorial District) to dump the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) for APC is a right decision.
Reacting to the defection, APC said the Senator took a wise decision that would sustain his political carrier, as well as give relevance to the people he represents.
The party’s National Vice Chairman (South-South) Ntufam Hilliard Eta, who said this in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Bassey Ita, pointed out that Senator Effiong decision was auspicious and well thought out in current political decision.
“Senator Effiong had felt the wind of change in Akwa Ibom state and since he cannot come against it or stand in its way, it was wise he joined it.”
He added that, with the coming together of the likes of Obong Umana Umana, Chief James John Akpanudoedeghe, Obong Nsima Ekere, Chief Sam Enwang,Madam Rachel Akpabio and Atuekong Don Etiebet among many others, there’s a clear indication that change is going to replace retrogressive governance in the state.
