After several postponements and delays, the All Progressives Congress (APC) formally flagged off its campaign in Cross River yesrerday. 


The carnival-like ceremony saw mammoth crowd of supporters welcomed party bigwigs including the sitting governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, seeking the senatorial seat of the northern district of the state; the governorship candidate of the party, Senator Prince Bassey Otu.

The flag off took place at the Ogoja township stadium in the heart of Ogoja, the headquarters of the northern senatorial district of the state.

The Local Government Area was practically at a standstill as thousands thronged the venue to demonstrate their love for the ruling party in the state and the candidates fielded by the party.

The decision to commence the party campaign from the northern district according to political pundits in the state, was to make a statement of support and commitment to the Ayade-led government that come rain, come shine, his people and APC supporters in the state would continue to follow him to wherever he leads in the overall interest of the state and of the country as a whole.

Supporters were seen brandishing placards with different inscriptions such as, “Ayade we know”, “Otu for All’ will do it very well”, “Ayade is our leader”, “Okadigbo for the people”, “Tinubu is our president”, “No way for seasonal politicians in Cross River,” among others.

Speaking at the event, the State chairman of APC, Alphonsus Eba drummed support for the candidates of the party in the respective elective positions.

“I want to tell you that these forthcoming general elections in Cross River state are not about any politician, or about our governorship candidate, Senator Prince Bassey Otu and other candidates in the election, but about Cross River and our tradition of good governance.”

“We must all come out with our permanent voter’s cards and come out en masse during the polls to vote for all the APC candidates and Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu and Shettima as the presidential and vice presidential candidates, respectively during the elections.”

Echoing similar sentiments, Otu promised to sustain the legacies of the outgoing governor when elected even as he made a case for employment opportunities for the teeming youths.

Ayade in his remarks thanks the people for the unflinching support he receives from them and promised to give them even better representation if voted back to the Senate.

The event witnessed the presentation of party flags to the candidates of the party for the state House of Assembly, House of Representatives, senate and governorship elections.

Also, the state chairman of the party at the rally received one of opposition foot soldier named Hon Emma Lifu. He officially decamped to the APC along with hundreds of his excited supporters.
