Cross River Deputy Governor Dumps PDP For APC GoldenNewsNg Reports.
The deputy governor of Cross River State, Prof Ivara Esu, has defected from the People Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
GoldenNewsNg reports that Esu joined the APC, four days after his principal, Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to report gathered, Prof Ivara Esu said he joined the APC willingly and not forced to defect.
He also emphasized on the rumours making rounds in the Rivers state accusing him of unwillingness to dump the PDP for the APC, saying that he registered in his ward as a full member of the APC.
Prof. Esu noted that his defection with the Governor, Ben Ayade to APC would not affect the projects that have been initiated by the administration and assured that all projects must be given due attention.
The deputy governor urged all his supporters not to be upset or resort to violence because the decision to decamp to the APC was his free decision.
Esu, however, said he might return to the PDP if the situation warrants, adding that matters may have to be considered and hard decisions will have to be taken
