The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday dissolved the party’s caretaker committee in Cross River State.

The party took the decision just 24 hours after the defection of the state governor, Ben Ayade, to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, said the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) approved the dissolution of the caretaker committee on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC).

The statement read: “The decision is in pursuant to the powers conferred on the NWC by the PDP Constitution.
