By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to help President Muhammadu Buhari save Nigeria.
Ayade, who moved to the ruling APC from the former ruling party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday, said he believes in the leadership qualities of Buhari and wants to help him solve the country’s several challenges, expressing his gratitude to his former party for giving him the platform to become governor.
The governor was speaking during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday.
“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 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.”
