How Gov. Ayade contributed N2bn to APC campaign in 2019 elections
The Cross Rivers state National Assembly caucus on Wednesday claimed that Governor Ben Ayade contributed N2bn to All Progressive Congress (APC) during 2019 elections.
The caucus in a statement issued in reaction to Chief Femi Fani-Kayode’s statement urged the former Minister to go to his state and make the party strong.
Fani-kayode had warned the party against taking over the state party structure from Governor Ayade.
According to @1archibongedet in response to Fani-kayode,”The National Assembly members from CRS are astonished that Fani Kayode can get so ballistic on a matter, he knows nothing about.
“He throws tantrums at the people that have sustained the Party, while he is on sabbatical.
“We thought he was going to ask Gov Ayade certain salient questions before dabbling in to the CRS matter.
“Did he ask Ayade why he contributed two billion naira (#2,000,0000.00), to the APC in the 2019 Elections?
“Did Fani Kayode ask him why he supported Hope Uzodinma in Imo State against EMEKA Ihedioha of PDP in the last Governorship Election in Imo State?
“Did he ask Ayade why he sent N5 million only, in December last year to the Party, as a Seating Governor after so much pressure?
“Did he ask Ayade if he could win CRS for PDP without the NASS Members?
“Did he ask Ayade if he had at least 50% of the structures OR not, bearing in mind that there are other stakeholders and we are in a Democracy?
“Finally, we think that Fani Kayode should brief us on the standing of the Party in his own State, if he is on ground.
“We know that the PDP is very weak in his State, so he should go and put his State together for the Party.
“Fani Kayode’s main Occupation at the moment is “talking “ but he should choose when and what to talk about, in spite of the inducements.”
