why does negative charge flow from lower potential to higher potential

Expert Answer:

If there is potential gradient exist in a region, then we have electric field exist in this region.
Charge particle experience force (q×E) in electric field , where q is magnitude of charge and E is electric
field intensity. Negative charge particle moves in a direction opposite to the direction of electric field. 
 
In electric field , direction of low potential region to high potential is opposite to the direction of electric field.
 
Hence negative charge moves from low potential region to high potential region.
