Ben Ayade Reacts To Report Of Court Sacking Him As PDP Governorship Candidate

What 33 Political Parties Said About Ayade’s Re-election As Cross River Governor

Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River state has reacted to reports spreading around that a Lagos Court of Appeal has sacked him as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the Saturday’s election.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Christian Ita, yesterday, the Governor dismissed such report as fake as there was no such pending matter before the Appeal Court.

He said, “case instituted in a Federal High Court in Abuja by Mr Emmanuel Ibeshi was discontinued when he filed a legitimate notice of discontinuance and as such never went on appeal.”

Ayade described the report as the “handiwork of political opponents who have been dazed by the reality that his bid was accomplished.”

He, however, urged members of the public and his teeming supporters to disregard what he termed as a fake report.
