Defection: Obono-Obla welcomes Gov Ben Ayade

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I welcome heartily Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State of Nigeria into the progressives fold-All Progressives Congress, APC. Governor Ayade is Human, and he has his good and negative sides, just as I and You. 

He has done his Best for Cross River State, and he is still doing his Best. Cross River State has a huge debt profile which Governor Ayade inherited, but Governor Ayade has managed the State’s economy excellently, paying salary and doing projects. I salute him. He is a man of sagacity and courage!

APC is just seven years old.

PDP is 21 years old. APC controlled Federal Government is six years. PDP led the Federal Government of Nigeria for 12 years.

APC inherited a broken country and is doing its best to bring sanity. APC has brought a semblance in so many areas. Rome was not built in a Day. I believe APC is better than PDP. APC-controlled Federal Government has done more for this country in 6 years with little resources than what PDP did in 12 years with so much money. Welcome, Governor Ayade.

As an APC leader from Cross River State, I pledge to work assiduously with Governor Ayade to enhance the Party’s fortunes.


Okoi Obono-Obla

APC Leader from Cross River.
