Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba SAN

Former Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN has taken a swipe on the duo of former Cross River state governors, Mr. Donald Duke and Senator Liyel Imoke for casting aspersions on the person and office of Governor Ben Ayade in the course of their political campaigns.

 First it was Sen. Imoke who informed a PDP campaign gathering that making Ayade a Governor was a mistake that he regrets. He had gone on to chastise the Governor for perceived wrongdoings.

 This was followed by Mr.  Duke who described Ayade as a failure while campaigning in Obudu for the PDP gubernatorial candidate, describing him (Ayade) in unprintable words in another campaign captured on video and which made the rounds in the social media.

Fielding questions recently at a briefing by the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state during the presentation of his manifesto at the Ernest Etim Bassey Press Centre, Calabar, Ndoma-Egba  said, the very discourteous statements credited to the duo are unbecoming of the two former occupants of the exalted office of Governor saying, “it is the highest honour everywhere for anyone to be voted and given the mandate to lead as Governor and that should not be lost on any occupant of that office, whether past or present.” 

He said it is a widely known fact that the two former Governors were at some point proteges of former Governor Clement Ebri who brought them up politically and “fortunately Ebri is still alive and the two of them should take a cue from him on how to conduct themselves out of power”.

Ndoma-Egba added that he was well aware that Ebri had his frustrations and disagreements with the two of them while they held sway as governors but he never went public with any condemnations because he sees the office of Governor as sacred. 

Speaking further, Ndoma-Egba appealed to both Duke and Imoke not to desecrate the high office they once occupied because it could get back to them. He charged the media to start a debate on the standard of conduct for those in public office, whether past or present.

Similarly, the All Progressives Congress (APC)governorship candidate in the state, Senator Bassey Otu has condemned the attack on Ayade by the former governors saying, ” for me I feel very sad and these are past leaders but they should call themselves to order”.
