Former governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke, has mentioned the All Progressives Congress is a celebration that’s collapsing and never one of the best place to go.
He said this on the stakeholders’ assembly of the Peoples Democratic Celebration held on Sunday at Transcorp Lodge, Calabar.
The assembly’s predominant agenda was the defection of the state Governor, Prof Ben Ayade, from the PDP to the APC final Thursday.
“APC is a celebration that’s collapsing. It isn’t a spot to go for Cross River. We are going to revive the glory of Cross River. I took dangers to see the emergence of this authorities. They even accused me of gathering cash. It’s an insult,” Imoke mentioned.
Talking additional, he mentioned, “I’ve been a governor and I served my folks diligently. Now now we have seen a distinct strategy to governance. It isn’t democratic. Our politics is good. We don’t play politics of harassment and intimidation.”
Imoke mentioned Cross River remains to be PDP and the motion of 1 man doesn’t change that truth.
He mentioned the occasion will likely be handed over to youths in 2023.
“We wish youths that may ship. The time has come for a generational shift. The following governor (of Cross River State) will likely be a person of character. The following Nationwide and state Meeting members will likely be males of character,” he mentioned.
The previous governor mentioned by no means was there a time PDP within the state was run by one man.
The stakeholders, comprising largely of members of the Nationwide Meeting and stalwarts of the PDP within the state, all expressed optimism that the occasion will wax sturdy after the defection of the governor and others.
