Former governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke, has warned members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against joining the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Naija News reports that he stated this at A stakeholders’ meeting of the PDP held on Sunday at Transcorp Hotel, Calabar.
According to the former governor, APC is a party that is collapsing and not the best place to go.
“APC is a party that is collapsing. It is not a place to go for Cross River. We will revive the glory of Cross River. I took risks to see the emergence of this government. They even accused me of collecting money. It is an insult,” Imoke said.
“I have been a governor and I served my people diligently. Now we have seen a different approach to governance. It is not democratic. Our politics is sweet. We don’t play politics of harassment and intimidation.”
Imoke said Cross River is still PDP and the movement of one man does not change that fact.
He said the party will be handed over to youths in 2023, adding that there was never a time Cross River PDP was run by one man.
“We want youths that can deliver. The time has come for a generational shift. The next governor (of Cross River State) will be a man of character. The next National and state Assembly members will be men of character,” he said.
Recall that Governor of Cross River, Ben Ayade, had last Thursday dumped the PDP for the APC.
