Honourable Grace Bassey, Councillor of Ward 7 in Bakassi Local Government Area of Cross River State, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The lawmake’s defection was made known in a letter addressed to the Chairman, PDP Ward 7 in Bakassi on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.
Giving reasons for her defection, the Councillor said she is a signatory of the Back-to-South agenda, as the Southern Senatorial District cannot wait for another 32 years before it can climb the Diamond Hill seat.
“As a signatory of the Back-to-South Movement, I find it contradictory to campaign, support or vote for a guber candidate from the Cross River Central or North.
“The South cannot wait for another 32 years on end for power to return to her”, the letter signed by Bassey read in part.
She further thanked the PDP for giving her the platform in which she became a member of the Bakassi Legislative Council. “I thank you all for the opportunity given to me under this platform until now”, Bassey added.
