There's no <Ctrl-;> character. Ctrl characters are the ones from
0 to 31 (^@, ^A->^Z, ^[, ^\, ^], ^^, ^_).

All you could do is configure your terminal emulator so that it
sends a specific character upon pressing the <Ctrl> + <;> key
combination and use that as the escape character. At the moment,
most likely, your terminal emulator sends the ";" character upon
pression <Ctrl+;>, just like upon pressing <;>.
