Before now, the governor of the state, Sir Ben Ayade had made the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) feel they had no place in the state. He took over their Secretariat, convinced many stakeholders to join him. He even went as far as stopping the allowance of some of the Cross River State House of Assembly members who refused to join him in the party.
But it seems everything is beginning to crumble in his face.

Firstly, aggrieved members of the APC who conducted their parallel congress have decided to take the matter to court, claiming that the governor cannot come to their party and make old members irrelevant.
Secondly, The governor's hope of getting the presidential ticket has crumbled as reported on THE WHISTLER.
Many who had the hope of getting appointments when he becomes the President are now becoming hopeless. They may consider returning to the PDP.
Thirdly, after the street sweepers protested in Calabar over the non-payment of their salaries for 6 months, many APC members have expressed displeasure with the governor for not showing mercy on those innocent women.
The most pathetic part was when security operatives dispersed them with tear gas. This may lead to so many members leaving the APC, bearing in mind that they have nothing to gain anymore in the party since the governor's ambition has crumbled.
