A Governorship aspirant on the platform of PDP in Cross River State, Mr. Frank Bulam has declared that he has all the qualities required to sustain the pace of development and the peace in Cross River State if elected a governor in 2015.
Mr Frank Bulem, who is also the Chairman of the Board of Internal Revenue Service told CrossRiverWatch in Calabar on Thursday that he has functioned in managerial positions in top banks in the country and is currently an entrepreneur who is successfully managing people and resources successfully which is a testament that he has the ability and capacity to govern the state and maintain its tempo of development. “I am eminently qualified to sustain what Governor Imoke is doing because where the state is now requires somebody with the mindset and capability to blend public and private sector experiences”.
Mr Bulem who is from Idung Mbube in Ogoja local Government Area said he is courageous, humble and likes taking challenges which is why he feels that at this time he should take the challenge of governing the state in order to break new grounds of development. “I am courageous, humble and have integrity, more so I have maintained a wonderful relationship with all segments of society and political players which puts me on the pedestal to win the support of majority of the people in my party and the state”.
He said he, in the past three months has been consulting quietly and has firmly established his intentions in the minds of the people of the state and would soon make a formal declaration to openly tell everybody in the state his vision and mission. “There has been tremendous goodwill and support for my ambition across the three senatorial districts during my consultation because when I become governor, I would not be the governor of northern Cross River alone but of all the state so my consultations have been state wide”.
He said the zoning of the position of governor of the state has reduced the length of electioneering since majority of the aspirants that would contest for the position of governor are those from the Northern Senatorial District since the position has been zoned there. “Whether zoned or not, I would still contest because the state needs a bridge builder who can guarantee the peace and stability of the state but the zoning of the position to the north has shortened the length of the process”.
The governorship aspirant asserted that he is not coming into the race because the position of governor in 2015 has been zoned to the northern Senatorial District but he is taking the challenge because he fits into the caliber of personality that can successfully pilot the affairs of the state. “I have been an insider all this while and if it will interest you to note that I am the Chairman of the Board of Internal Revenue Service which I was appointed by Governor Imoke in recognition of my involvement in the development of the state”.
