Governor Ben Ayade has accused politicians of paying militias to destroy Nigeria, insisting that President Muhammadu Buhari is an honest leader with integrity.

He stated this while fielding questions from journalists after meeting with the president at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Regarding his defection, he told the journalists, “I moved into the APC because of my personal relationship with Mr President. I have watched him, and I found honesty, integrity and I see his wish and commitment to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“To that extent, I have a leader that I trust. Opposition in the third world means let everything happen that will make the other party look bad.

“I am one of the strong Nigerian governors, who has risen beyond party lines and ethnic lines by virtue of my education and exposure.’’

According to him, defecting to APC is a rude shock to the PDP.

“The reality is that PDP had the best result in Cross River – of all the elected offices, all the chairmen of the councils, all the counsellors, all the National Assembly members but one, all the chairmen of the local governments, all commissioners, all the appointees, all of them were PDP before I defected.

“So, for such a governor who led PDP to such a victory, to defect to APC, definitely, it must come as a very, very rude shock,” he said.

The governor condemned the reported cases of attacks on public facilities by those he described as paid militia and bandits across the country.

He accused unpatriotic politicians of sponsoring attacks, kidnapping, and the killing of innocent citizens.

“The increasing insecurity in Nigeria as Nigeria suffers attacks from extraneous aggressors paid militia and bandits. The opposition party only celebrates that because they believe it gives them a chance to win in 2023.

“So, opposition becomes very cannibalistic. So, you rejoice over the bloodbath in your country. You rejoice over the level of insurgency and killings in your country just because you are playing opposition.

“The country is snowballing into civil strife. We need to come together and support Mr President to overcome the insurgency which is characterised by external militias, who are paid for the purpose.”
