A socio political group in Calabar, Movement For Democratic Equity, MDE has urged the people of Cross River State to support the Northern Senatorial District to produce the next governor of the State.

The newly formed group stated this in Calabar while on a courtesy call to the Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Cross River State Council, Comrade Ndoma Akpet as part of its familiarization tour to critical stakeholders in the State.

Led by its Coordinator, Engineer Cletus Ogbang and Secretary, Sylverous Ogar, the group said its sole intention is to preach equity and fairness in the State and to ensure there is regular rotation of power across the three senatorial districts of the state.

“Our intention is to sensitize elites from the Northern district to unite and pick a credible candidate for the 2015 gubernatorial race.

“We are of the opinion that all political parties should zero their choice of candidate for 2015 governorship race to the Northern Cross River in the interest of equity.

“Equitable power sharing is as old as politics itself, let all Cross Riverians and well-meaning persons in the state key into the principle of power rotation as a means to foster peace and unity in the state polity”.

The group which claims membership from the three senatorial districts of the State however failed to convinced journalists why the Coordinator and the Secretary came from the same senatorial district of Cross River against their own principle of equity and fairness.
