Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has threatened to dump the Peoples democratic party, PDP if the party structure in Cross River State is taken away from Governor Ben Ayade.

He called on the PDP National working committee not to make a mistake of handing the party structure of the state to someone else order than Ayade adding that if Ayade leaves the party, he will have no other option than to leave.

There is a running battle over who becomes the next Chairman of the PDP in Cross Rivers.

Ayade and some party chieftains, including former governor, deputy governor, National Assembly members, state lawmakers and former elected and appointed party officers are at daggers drawn over who controls the structures ahead of 2023.

While Ayade is backing Alphonsus Eba (a.k.a Okadigbo) for the state chairmanship of PDP, the other aggrieved groups are totally behind the former PDP national publicity secretary and former Commissioner, Venatius Nkem, in the chairmanship race of the party.

Reacting to the situation Fani-Kayode tweeted, “It would be a big mistake for the NWC of the @OfficialPDPNig to take the party structures in his state away from Ben Ayaade, Gov. of Cross Rivers state, and hand them over to anyone else. If this is done and Ayaade leaves the party be rest assured that many of us will leave with him.
“You cannot and must not undermine a sitting Governor or attempt to humiliate him in his own state and before his people. Some of those that are advocating and behind this nonsense would never allow it to happen in their own states. A word is enough for the wise.
“No-one, no matter how big or powerful, should think that they own the @OfficialPDPNig. If there is any attempt to undermine Ayade it will spark off a crisis in the party that will split it right down the middle and the consequences will not be limited to Cross Rivers state.”


  1. It’s not proper to take away party leadership from the governor of the state instead of doing that why can’t you look a way of settling any issues among the party members. I’m not supprised because most of our politicians are selfish people.

  2. Politicians with their issues, everybody wants to be a leader instead of chosen or elect a leader among them. Selfishness is endemic disease that is killing the progress of this nation. PDP should settle their differences for the unification of the party.

  3. Is Ben Ayade the owner of PDP? Must he control the structure of the party because he is the governor of the state. I don’t think that is right at all instead they should enter into an election that should be free and fair to all interest in the position and whosoever that wins, should do the job
    If Femi Kayode wants to leave let him leave
