Senator John Owan-Enoh has been backed by the Women Impact Network (WIN) to run for a second term in office as the Senator representing the central senatorial district of Cross River State in the National Assembly.
Owan-Enoh who was nicknamed “Johnwin” by the association got the backing recently during the commissioning of the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Ajassor, Etung local government area where some members of the People’s Democratic Party who defected to the All Progressives Congress were welcomed to the party.
The women group commended the leadership qualities of Mr. Owan-Enoh and noted that women across the senatorial district support him and are ready to vote for him at the next elections as he had brought the dividends of democracy to his constituents.
In his remarks, Owan-Enoh who commended the women for their firm resolve to continually support him, pledged to deliver on his mandate even as he hoped that those who are still contemplating joining the APC, do so quickly and bragged about his record at the polls.
“I will continue to respond to the needs of my people. As we journey towards 2019, we want everyone to be part of the movement for as we consolidate in Etung, we are taking it to other parts of the state,” Owan-Enoh said, adding that: “We have not failed before and we are not going to lose anytime soon.”
CrossRiverWatch had reported that Mr. Enoh’s defection which followed that of Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, Prince Jedy Agba among others will trigger more defections especially in the central senatorial district.
