Addressing his supporters at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport (MEIA), Otu who is also a member of the senate committee on petroleum, upstream, explained why he left the PDP.
Otu said, "I am coming home to enjoy Christmas with you and to let you know that I am totally displeased with the way PDP conducted her primaries in Cross River State.
"What I want to leave you with tonight is that, for now, I have resigned from the People's Democratic Party.
"I want to thank you for the support and prayers I have been enjoying from you. Today you sent me to represent you. My representation in the Senate has been totally about the people and not myself. I am totally displeased with the way the PDP has conducted itself. My objective here is to consult with all of you and in no distant time, we would come out with a decision.
