Stalwarts of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State Saturday, strengthened the party’s machinery in Obudu the hometown of incumbent Cross River Governor, Senator Benedict Ayade with the commissioning of a new party secretariat and donation of motorcycles to ward chairmen.

The secretariat, a four bedroom apartment located at Hospital Road by Bishiri road, a stone throw from Animal Junction was donated by Honorable Paul Adah, a member of the House of Representatives in the 5th and 6th assembly representing Obudu/Obanliku/Bekwarra federal constituency.

Adah while presenting the new secretariat said this was part of the preparations on ground for the party to take over which is also being strengthened by the lack of sensitivity to the yearnings of the people by Governor Ayade.

When contacted, the State Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Egbung Odama told DailyTrust‘s Eyo Charles that the people are impressed with the performances of Governor Ayade.

In a similar vein, Prince Jedy Agba who contested the 2015 gubernatorial elections in the state under the platform of the PDP also donated 10 motorcycles to each of the ward chairmen of the party in Obudu.
