Governor Benedict Ayade has dumped the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He announced his decision moments ago at the Executive Council chambers of the Governor’s office in Calabar.
This confirms CrossRiverWatch’s earlier report that he was in a meeting with APC bigwigs.
The APC National Caretaker, Governor Mai Mala Buni, Governors Kayode Fayemi and Hope Uzodinma as well as Minister for State, Petroleum, Timipre Sylva were among those present.
His move is expected to alter the political permutations as to who succeeds him in 2023.
