Ex Governor of Cross Rivers State and former Minister of Power and Steel, Senator Liyel Imoke has said that the ruling All Progressives Congress is collapsing and not the best place to be in.

He made this view known at a Stakeholders meeting held in Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Calabar on Sunday.

The main agenda of the meeting was the defection of Governor Ben Ayade from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC.

He said: “APC is a party that is collapsing. It is not a place to go for Cross River. We will revive the glory of Cross River. I took risks to see the emergence of this government. They even accused me of collecting money. It is an insult,” Imoke said.

Speaking further, he said, “I have been a governor and I served my people diligently. Now we have seen a different approach to governance. It is not democratic. Our politics is sweet. We don’t play politics of harassment and intimidation.”

“We want youths that can deliver. The time has come for a generational shift. The next governor (of Cross River State) will be a man of character. The next National and state Assembly members will be men of character.” he added.
