Opinion: Ben Ayade may lose Cross Rivers to PDP in 2023 if he does not lay a solid structure for APC

The Cross Rivers State governor, Ben Ayade, may lose his state to the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023 if he fails to lay down a solid grassroots structure for the All Progressive Congress in his state.

Recall that Ben Ayade recently defected from the PDP to the APC, years after winning the Cross Rivers State governorship election with the PDP.

Shortly after his defection, former governor of Cross Rivers State, Donald Duke returned to the PDP. This means that the Cross Rivers State governor has a serious battle to face if he wants to deliver his state for the APC in the 2023 general elections.

The APC did not have a formidable and concrete grassroots structure in the state, this is why Ben Ayade must put in a lot of work to ensure that he delivers the state for APC in 2023.

The return of Donald Duke to the PDP has motivated members of the party who may have been demoralized by the defection of Ben Ayade to the APC.

The Cross Rivers State governor needs to set up a structure from the grassroots level capable of winning elections if APC must win in the 2023 general elections.

I know that this is politics and anything can happen, but we must also remember that there have been situations where governors were unable to deliver their states for their political parties.

States like Cross Rivers that has been known as core PDP states may need extra work if another party must take over.

The State only became an APC State because Ben Ayade defected, it is not as if he won the governorship election with the APC.

You can see that the APC did not win elections in Cross Rivers State, this is why Ben Ayade should work hard to lay a concrete structure.

From my assessment, Ben Ayade and the APC may have more work to do than the PDP in Cross Rivers State ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Dear readers, do you think that Ben Ayade can deliver Cross Rivers State for the APC in the 2023 general elections, or will the PDP take over?
