Consequent on the recent development in the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to hand all incumbent National Assembly members seeking re-election an automatic ticket, Cross River Daily reports that negative reactions to this development are becoming obvious as three National Assembly aspirants have already used the party’s exit door.
On one hand is House of Assembly member representing Odukpani State Constituency, Hon. Bassey Akiba currently seeking to represent Calabar Municipal/Odukpani Federal Constituency at the Green Chambers, and, on the other hand is former House of Representatives member, Hon. Nkoyo Toyo who is also seeking to represent Calabar Municipal/Odukpani Federal Constituency.
Reliable sources told Cross River Daily that Bassey Akiba is now with the All Progressive Congress, APC, while Nkoyo Toyo is with the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
In the same story, a report reaching Cross River Daily, late yesterday said KJ Jedy Agba, an aspirant for Obudu/Obanliku/Bekwarra Federal Constituency has also abandoned the party for APC.
