The Chairman of the Cross River State chapter of the Labour Party, Maurice Ekeng, on Sunday, defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ekeng’s defection alongside some members of the Labour Party was contained in a statement issued by the publicity secretary of the APC, Bassey Ita.
According to Ita, the defectors were received at the Marian Road Secretariat of the party by the APC State Chairman, Sen. Matthew Mbu whom he represented at the event.
Ita revealed that Ekeng defected along with his entire State Executive Committee because of the exemplary leadership of Governor Ben Ayade who recently defected to the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
