Eseme Eyiboh, a top chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom state, will formally join the All Progressives Congress (APC) on January 6, Premium Times reports.


According to Eyiboh, the former spokesman of the House of Representatives, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has lost the visionary philosophy of its founding fathers and empowered a crop of political dealers deficit in inspirational leadership.

Announcing his resignation from the party, the former financial secretary of the Akwa Ibom state chapter of the PDP and chairman of the state’s Ethical and Attitudinal Reorientation Commission (EARCOM), said the PDP had thrown up economic choristers who had converted the commonwealth into private franchise.

His words: “Having had the privilege of the membership of PDP on whose platform I became the state Financial Secretary, Executive Chairman, EARCOM and later  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, instead of intended leadership nursery guided by the principle of social justice and a platform to promote content analysis of its manifesto and implement strategies of its programmes to government as an enabler for good governance, it has rather, thrown up economic choristers and social misdemeanours  who have converted our common wealth into private franchise thus turning the party and the state into a behemoth of monstrous proportion.

“Its present system has produced unprecedented crop of political ‘dealers’ instead of inspirational leaders occasioning the increasing deficits in revenue yielding assets and sundry incentives to trigger community growth and prosperity.”


In 2012, the Supreme Court  sacked Hon. Eseme Eyibo representing Eket Federal Constituency of Akwa Ibom from the House of Representatives and returned Dan Abia of PDP as the legitimate representative of the constituency.

Delivering judgment, Justice Rodes Vivour held that the respondent (Abia) was the rightful candidate of the party.
