Ndoma-Egba back from the deep

Senate Victor Ndoma-Egba seems to have found that tiny spark called conscience in his heart. For 12 years, he was at the Senate and stayed on as Leader of Senate, during the 7th Senate.

With his attempt to return hitting the rocks, Ndoma-Egba, a cerebral lawyer by all means, retreated into his shell and switched to the APC when power changed hands at the centre.

For all his legislative years, the senator saw nothing wrong with local council elections not being held by state governments.

Now in his new found home, sanity seem to have found the Silk so much that he advocates extra-constitutional ways to enforce compliance as per local government elections.

Ndoma-Egba has only succeeded in showing that because his home state Cross River is under the PDP should not give him impetus to offer a piece of advice that has no basis in law.

Hear him, “There are consequences for breaching the constitutional requirements to have a democratically elected local government system in place. “For instance, the Federal Government should withhold your funds, until you have a democratically elected system in place.”

This sought of thinking from a Senior Advocate beggers belief and should be thrown where it belongs: garbage bin.
