BREAKING : Ayade remains PDP guber candidate, report of A/Court sacking fake - Ibeshi

Governorship aspirant of the People's Democratic Party, PDP in Cross River State, Hon. Emmanuel Ibeshi has rubbished reports trending on social media that Appeal Court has sacked Governor Ben Ayade as candidate of the party.

Ibeshi in a statement by his media aide, Efiom Attoe said that the report that Ayade has been sacked for him to be recognized as the candidate was fake.

He described the report as handiwork of the opposition in the state noting that the suit he instituted against the Governor in Abuja High Court has since been withdrawn.

The statement by Ibeshi has now confirmed earlier report by Fearless Reports that the news about Ayade's removal as PDP candidate by an appeal court sitting in Lagos was false.

According to the statement, Ibeshi urged Cross Riverians to disregard the statement noting that he was fully committed to the reelection bid of Gov. Ayade.

"The attention of Hon Emmanuel Ibeshi has been drawn to a story circulating on print and social media to the effect that a Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos on Wednesday 6th of March, 2019 sacked His Excellency, Governor Benedict Ayade as the PDP Gubernatorial candidate for Cross River State for the March 9, 2019 Gubernatorial elections and replaced him with Hon Emmanuel Ibeshi.

Hon Emmanuel Ibeshi had actually instituted a suit at a Federal High Court in Abuja to challenge the decision of the PDP to withdraw his clearance to contest the PDP Gubernatorial primaries against HE Gov Ben Ayade but had also withdrawn the suit soon afterwards in the interest of the Party and Brotherhood, and has since been doing all he can to help Gov Ben Ayade deliver the dividends of democracy to the good people of Cross River State.

Hon Emmanuel Ibeshi believes that the said story is the handiwork of the opposition in CRS and hereby wishes to urge the electorate and numerous supporters of HE Gov Ben Ayade to disregard the said story in its entirety", the statement reads.
