Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade says he will vie for the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2023 if the party finds him fit.

Ayade stated this during an interview on Sunrise Daily, a Channels TV programme on Wednesday.

He was responding to a question on whether he would vie for the presidency on the platform of APC.

The governor said that the party should base the choice of its presidential candidate on zoning.

When further pressed on the matter, he said he would contest if the party finds him “fit and proper”.

Ayayde said, “I think the party should take a decision based on zoning principles which would be resolved as a party.

“Let me say, yes and no. If the family (APC) finds that I am fit and proper, yes. If the family finds that there is a better option and that option fits into the zoning (arrangement), of course, I will stand by the party’s position.

“I am a conformist; I stand with the system. I have never been an aberrant. I work with the system.”
