Ayade on why he moved to the ruling party, the Cross River state governor eulogised the attributes of President Muhammadu Buhari and the realisation that Cross River, which has been emasculated economically following the ceding of its oil wells, needed to be in sync with the party at the center, as the main reasons for his defection.
