The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday suggested all Peoples Democratic Occasion (PDP) Governors to defect to the ruling social gathering.
APC Secretary Caretaker Additional-Strange Conference Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, in an announcement to welcome Cross River Governor Ben Ayade, urged PDP Governors to take a cue from the brand new defector and abandon the ‘sinking vessel’.
Akpanudoedehe, who described PDP as a useless social gathering, urged the remaining Governors within the opposition social gathering to go away it for a residing and thriving APC.
The APC scribe stated: “The All Progressives Congress (APC) congratulates the Governor of Cross River State, His Excellency Ben Ayade for his sensible and well timed determination to go away a useless social gathering, the Peoples Democratic Occasion (PDP) for a residing and thriving social gathering, the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“We commend the patriotic disposition and judgement that formed Governor Ayade’s determination to affix forces with President Muhammadu Buhari to construct a greater Nigeria as a member of the APC .
“The APC is advising the opposite governors who’re stranded within the sinking wreckage of the PDP to train the most suitable choice of abandoning that vessel.”
Commending Ayade, the social gathering scribe stated: “The APC notes with satisfaction that Governor Ayade has all the time been an APC man at coronary heart given the humane and progressive method through which he managed the affairs of Cross River State.
“The folks of Cross River State will now take pleasure in extra developmental initiatives primarily based on the APC values of delivering dividends of democracy designed to enhance the wellbeing of the folks.”
The APC noticed the overall lack of inner democracy, which turned the PDP right into a one-man present, has precipitated frustration and alienated PDP Governors and legislators who’re hardly consulted in the way in which the social gathering is run.
