Calabar, Cross Rivers state - The national chairman of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, has issued a quit notice to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River state.

The PDP chairman made the statement during the official inauguration of the caretaker committee and unveiling of the new party-state secretariat (annex) in Calabar.
PDP says Ayade's defection was a wrong political move
He said Ayade must be regretting his decision to defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
‘’This is a quit notice to gov Ayade, he should begin to pack his load and we also know that he is regretting joining the APC because more governor’s are joining the 14 PDP governors from the ruling APC.’’
According to The Sun, the PDP chieftain stated that the party was determined to reclaim power at the federal level.
He stated that the PDP will restructure the country if it governs Nigeria at the federal level. Secondus also promised residents of the state that the party will reclaim Cross River.
