Former Cross River Governor and aspirant for the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Clement Ebri has accused the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Pastor Usani Usani of working hand-in-glove with incumbent Governor Ben Ayade to kill the State.

This comes on the heels of another fresh round in the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party since the commencement of congresses to elect new executives.

And, Ebri, while addressing newsmen recently in Calabar said that: “We are aware and have on authority that our member, the honorable minister of Niger Delta is in league with the Cross River State Governor to sound the death knell on APC in our state.

“How else can you justify the situation where our president who was refused public space in 2015 can now find favor in Cross River State to the extent that the Cultural Center with an alternative of the International Conference Center was easily offered by the Cross River state government?

Ebri who is the only Cross Riverian in the national Board of Trustees of the party also decried what he said is, “the illegal deployment of soldiers who fired live bullets on” supporters of the party.

He demanded that a state congress be conducted and explained that the secretary of the congress committee had submitted a fake list to the national secretariat.

“The congress committee led by Maj. Gen. U.T. Umar rtd. had conducted successful congress across the state and were in the process of collating results from the Local Government congress when news got to us that the secretary of the committee, one Mr. Ambrose Egwunatum had surreptuosly taken off from the state with fake result sheets to submit to National Secretariat without the congress chairman’s knowledge.”

Also, he said that: “A proper state congress using the authentic state elected at the ward congress be held before Saturday, 26th May 2018.”
