Ahead of the 2023 general elections, a Chapter Officer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Etim Ekpo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom, Comrade Nsikan Inyang, has decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the centre.


Speaking with our Correspondent in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital, Inyang, explained that his leaving the party which he diligently served for eight years became necessary following years of marginalization and frustration in the hands of political leaders of Etim Ekpo.

According to Inyang, who hails from Udianga Enem in Etim Ekpo ward 8, it was time for a new political order that would recognize the essence of the youths as future leaders and stressed the need for all hands to be on the deck to install a new and progressive order that would capture the popular interests of everyone in the Local Government.

He explained that allowing the Local Government to continue to remain under the vice-grip of few politicians under one man cabal, real development would consistently elude the Council that remain for several years without positive changes that impacts on the lives of the people.  

His words: “I have served the PDP for over eight years and what I get is frustration and dashed hopes by the political leaders of Etim Ekpo, who can only promise but can’t redeem their promises.

“I have been a loyal party man in PDP but all my efforts to help in strengthening the PDP in the Local Government cannot be rewarded. If I have a problem and no one recognizes your worth, then it is better for me to go elsewhere, where I believe my loyalty would be recognize and rewarded.

“Therefore, I am going into the APC where I believe secure my political future be secured because, if you check, the APC as an opposition party in the state has a better reward system for those who sacrifice for the interest of the party.

“I had spent the last eight years working and sacrificing for the PDP but those who claimed to be the owners of the party in Etim Ekpo have taken it upon themselves to use their hands to kill the party not minding the fact that politics is game of number and the people are the ingredients.

“My happiness is that the leaders of APC as party in the state have resolved to bury the feuds, for harmony and unity to reign in the party ahead of the 2023 general elections, and they are working towards that with a view to capturing the state in 2023.”With consistent movements of PDP chieftains the APC in the recent times, you would easily understand that the APC is the way to go because PDP is already a sinking ship to be avoided, except you want to be drowned when it finally sinks beyond redemption.

 “Therefore, I have to leave in earnest with my wealth of experience garnered over the years, and I believe I, working with other chieftains and officers of the APC, we will be able to galvanize the electorates across the 11 Wards in Etim with a view to delivering the Local Government to the APC”, Inyang assured.
