Victor Ndoma-Egba


When Senator Ndoma-Egba turned 64 on Saturday, the 7th day of March 2020, President Buhari publicly acknowledged him in glowing terms. The President in his goodwill message described Senator Ndoma-Egba as a role model, a patriot and a man of impeccable credentials. And so did many glowing tributes and accolades pour in to honour this eminent lawyer, politician and patriot as he celebrated his birthday anniversary! From governors to senators, from ministers to community leaders, from church leaders to eminent lawyers, so did tributes pour in, to celebrate a man known for his cool head and stable disposition. Interestingly, Senator Ndoma-Egba shares the same birthday with Professor Osinbajo, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Interestingly both men are SANs and they share a passion for the uplift of Nigeria. Now, who is this man that many great Nigerians celebrated as he marked 64? Victor Ndoma-Egba is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, a politician, and a former Chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

He was a three-term senator, representing Cross Rivers Central Senatorial District of Cross River State in the Nigerian Senate from 2003 to 2015. He holds two national honors, Officer of the Federal Republic [OFR] and Commander of the Niger [CON].
