John Achala, the acting chairman of the APC said that Governor Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers state has been pleading with key APC stalwarts in the state and at national level to clear way for him to leave the PDP and join them.

Speaking with the Daily Trust yesterday at the party’s secretariat in Calabar, Ochala said, “I can confirm authoritatively that Gov. Ayade has spoken with us more than five times about his intention to decamp from PDP to APC.


But the Chief Press Secretary to Gov Ayade, Mr Christian Ita, said it’s incorrect to spread such rumour.

“Gov Ayade has said it several times that he is not leaving the PDP for any reason. Perhaps, the people in APC just like my governor. And probably, they are misunderstanding Ayade’s closeness to President Buhari, therefore insinuating that he is nursing ambition to join them”, he said.
