Thousands of supporters of the All Progressive Congress, APC, in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State yesterday dumped the party for People's Democratic Party, PDP.

The APC members announced their defection during the official reception of a former Chieftain of APC, Chief Ernest Irek who recently dumped the party for the  PDP.

The event which held at the Mile 1 park, Obubra has caused major panic in the ranks and files of the APC in the state.

At the event, a  political group, "Team Enerst Irek" with an overwhelming population also declared total support for the reelection of Gov Ben Ayade in 2019.

It will be recalled that Comrade Dan Obo, member of the planning committee to receive Chief Irek had said that Irek has always complained that APC in Cross River State has no reward system for loyalty.

According to him "this could be his major reason for dumping the party".

The occasion which had Hon. Peter Akam, the Cross River State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry as the Chairman was well attended by political appointees of the present administration in the state.

Reacting to the development, one of the factional executive of the APC in the state who spoke in confidence said that, "the major troubles affecting the party may not be unconnected to the leadership tussle of who becomes the authentic gubernatorial candidate in the state and this has done more harm to the party than good.

Let's stop deceiving ourselves, all is not well with the APC in the state; forget what you read from some boys who are not even members of the party on social media".

Chief Enerst Irek is a former member of the House of Representatives.
