Obidike described his move as a victory for the APC in the South-South part of the country and a plausible confirmation of President Buhari’s unflinching leadership style.
He said, “Our president has yet again been vindicated by the crucial entry of key political figureheads in Cross River state that our president has the popular support and hearts of the Nigerian people, especially those of the South-South.”
Recall that the Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade, on May 20, 2021, also dumped the PDP for the APC.
The governor announced his decision at the Executive Council Chambers of the Governor’s Office in Calabar, the state capital.
