A former governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke, on Sunday that the exit of Governor Ben Ayade would not destroy the state chapter.
Ayade had last week defected to the All Progressives Congress and also tried to convert the state secretariat of PDP to APC.
Imoke spoke at a meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party, held at Transcorp Hotel, Calabar.
He said, “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.”
“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.
