Cross Rivers State Governor Ben Ayade has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Governor Ayade disclosed this on Thursday morning after a closed-door meeting with six APC governors and members of the National Assembly who visited him at the Government House.
The governors who visited Ayade include Governors of Kebbi, Imo, Yobe, Plateau, Jigawa, and Ekiti State.
APC National Caretaker Chairman and Yobe Governor Mai Mala Buni also declared Professor Ben Ayade party leader in Cross River State.
Gov. Ayade was elected as the governor of Cross Rivers State in 2015 under the platform of the PDP. He was reelected in 2019 under the platform of the same political party.
