Why I Dumped PDP For APC – Gov Ayade



The Governor of the Cross River State, Ben Ayade, has disclosed the reason why he dumped his old party People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to join the All Progressives Congress (APC)..

Disclosing the reason why he left PDP to join APC, the River State Governor said there was a need for the State to belong to the center following the ceding of its oil wells. He also attributed his move to the attributes of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Having seen and known the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his commitment to this country, his nationalistic disposition and all the efforts he has made to bring Nigeria to where we are today, it is obvious that at this point, we needed to join hands with him to build a Nigeria that we can be proud of.

“We need all governors to recognize that it is not the party that matters. It is the character, it is an honor, it is the commitment to the vision of this great nation. We all need to know as teamwork ahead of the president by working towards building a prosperous country that the succession worries of 2023 will come without the fears and the worries the international community has for us.

“I believe that if everyone of us as governor join hands with Mr President, I think we can sit on the same dining table and fashion out a way to govern this country,” Ayade stated
