“Ayade start to pack now! He has been here for 6 years, nothing to show; the youths are hungry, people are suffering. Across Nigeria, it is only PDP states that are delivery democratic dividends.
Continuing, the PDP Chairman said “When I heard of food on the table, I asked, which food on the table? It is the APC blood that is on the table. Cross River has had good governors; Donald Duke transformed Cross River State, Ayade came and killed everything. Where is Tinapa that Duke built? Ayade has killed it. Another performing governor the state has had is Sen. Liyel Imoke; he did well as a governor.
