Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State said he wants to help President Muhamadu Buhari in dealing with the challenges of the country.
Ayade defected to the ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC) from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday after months of speculations.
However, the governor said that he had no issue with his former party, saying the former party stood with him all through the way.
The governor made this known in an interview with Channels TV on Thursday evening monitored by TOS News.
In his words “In any other legal issue that I have had, PDP had stood with me. PDP gave me the opportunity to be a senator; PDP gave me the opportunity to be a governor. I would never have any time to pull down PDP. I have integrity, character, and honour. My politics have ethics. My decision to join APC is to join the President to reduce the tension in the country.”
Cross River state governor also hinted that some governors on the platform of the PDP will soon join the ruling party.
“I am happy to announce to you that very soon, more governors are joining the APC because what we want to achieve is a country where we all can sit with the President and agree on our succession process, we don’t have to fight,” Ayade said.
