Governor Ben Ayade’s led government has allegedly barred the All Progressives Congress, APC from using government facilities in Obudu local government area of Cross River State.

The party planned to use either the ‘Civic Centre’ or the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) events’ hall for their rally’ today, Saturday, in Obudu local government area of the state but the government allegedly denied them access to the facilities.

Governor Ayade is also from Obudu. Some thugs allegedly loyal to the Governor have also destroyed campaign banners mounted at the APC Secretariat in Obudu.

Speaking, one of the members of the organizing committee, Victor Adie said that, “We paid for the civic centre days back only for us to be told just yesterday that we can no longer use the place. Our money was refunded and as peace loving people, we quietly left.

“When we got another hall, that’s the NUT event hall, on the verge of paying, we were told we can’t use the hall citing orders from above. Even our Secretariat that we have opted to use is under siege, we noticed this morning that some thugs brought down and destroyed our flags yesterday.

“We have gone to the police but the DPO is saying we can’t hold the event. We heard soldiers are coming from Ogoja to disrupt the event and we don’t know our offence. When has it become an offence for a political party to meet?”

When contacted, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ayade, Christian Ita said the governor cannot reduce himself to that level.

He said that the Governor was too busy to start thinking of disrupting APC event.

He said, “That’s too petty. The Governor is on investment drive now in China, would he leave that to come and disrupt APC function?

“They should look within them to know who is responsible because the governor is too busy for that”.
