The former permanent secretary in Cross River State and member of the Governing Council of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Dr Mathew Achigbe, has resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
At a reception welcoming him to the APC in his Ofombumgha/Yala Ward in Obubra Local Government Area, Achigbe said his decision was in the interest and development of Obubra residents.
According to him, no true son or daughter of Obubra with the people’s interest would remain in the PDP.
Achigbe said APC presented a source of hope because it had won the hearts of the people.
Also, former House of Assembly’s Minority Leader Alex Irek hailed those who dumped the PDP for APC.
