The Chief Press Secretary and Special Adviser to the governor on media, Mr. Christian Ita, has debunked rumours that governor Ben Ayade has concluded plans to join the All Progressives’ Congress (APC).
In a chat with the New Nigerian Online, Ita said “there is absolutely no truth to the report that Governor Ayade is defecting to the APC”
According to him, “it is fake news. It is the fertile imagination of the author of the report”.
The governor, he added, “has a relationship with the President based on governance. So there is a need for us as a people to understand that governance is different from politics”.
Ayade, he sais, “is a committed member of the Peoples’ Democratic party (PDP) and has no plans to defect”.
He therefore appealed to party supporters and Cross Riverians to remain calm and focused.
