Senate leader opts out of rescheduled PDP congress in C/Rivers

Published by Tribune on Mon, 24 Nov 2014


SENATE Majority Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, said on Sunday that he will not be part of the rescheduled Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ward congresses in Cross Rivers State fixed for today, November 24.Ndoma-Egba, in a statement made available to the Nigerian Tribune insisted that since the matter of the ward congress held November 1 in the state was still pending before the court, he would not be party to any other congress as a mark of respect for the rule of law.He stated that he was aware that a court was due to deliver judgement on the matter today, adding that participating in any other congress would question his status as a lawyer and inner member of the bar.The statement read in part: 'I know as a fact that the issue of the November 1, 2014 ward congresses in Cross River State is sub judice as it is the subject of pending litigations before a Federal High Court in Abuja and the Cross River State High Court.'I am a lawyer of 36 years standing, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, leader of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Nigeria's highest lawmaking body. I therefore will not do anything to undermine the sanctity of our judicial process and the judiciary. Our institutions are far more important than my personal ambition, indeed any person's ambition. Our democracy will never be complete without the rule of law. We must therefore give the judiciary her place and respect.
