Chieftains of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Cross River State have welcomed Governor Ben Ayade who defected to the celebration on Thursday at Calabar.

There’s no gainsaying the fact that the past 6 years of being in the opposition has impacted the State negatively, even though you have consciously navigated the boat of governance in sync with all the APC-led Federal Government. As a State, we can ill afford to remain in the opposition. I commend you for recognizing this reality and also doing the needful for the good of the beloved State.”
He said of his hopes the”coming of Governor Ayade will enrich our internal democracy and I enjoin you to be consultative, inclusive, democratic, transparent and accountable because these will be the hallmarks of the All Progressives Congress family. In addition, I anticipate that your existence in the APC will strengthen the party and improve our electoral fortunes in Cross River State.”
