Senate Leader, Chief Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN, has reiterated the position of the Cross River State Government and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to cede the governorship candidate in the 2015 governorship election in the state to Cross River North.

Senator Ndoma-Egba who spoke to CrossRiverWatch in Abuja recently noted that for the sake of equity and fair play, Cross River North Senatorial District should produce the state governor as the Central and the Southern Senatorial Districts had already produced governors.

He said, “Well, for us in PDP, we believe in honour. And I think we have made a categorical public pronouncement that after Senator Liyel Imoke’s tenure from the Central Senatorial zone, the governorship would go to the North.

“Donald Duke who was there before him, happened to come from the South which means the South and the Central have had it. It is something that we have publicly proclaimed and we are committed to the word that we pronounced. When we say something, we mean it.”

The Senate Leader however, said that having decided that the position should go to Cross River North, it was left for the people that make up the senatorial district to work hard towards achieving that.

He said that the position was for the PDP, stressing that another political party could decide not to give the slot to the North which could even affect the people if they did not put their house in order to realize their ambition.
