The PDP primaries for the Cross River South Senatorial District holding at the Cultural Center Complex Calabar got into a hitch on Sunday afternoon causing delay of accreditation of delegates.

Materials arrived the center at about 1.30pm but no business could be carried out as the managers of the place are said to have complained that the party did not pay for the use of the center.

CrossRiverWatch gathered that as a result of the delay occasioned by the said non-payment, most delegates and other supporters of Senator Prince Bassey Otu started demonstrating demanding that their candidate be returned unopposed as according to them there was nobody to match him nor the record he has achieved.

It took the passionate efforts and pleading of Senator Prince Otu to calm the protesters who equally booed at Mr. Ekpo Okon who came to the venue, while singing and warning Governor Imoke to remove his hands from the southern senatorial race and allow the people to decide or be prepared to get his fingers burnt.

However, as at the time of filing this report, accreditation had commenced and the situation had also become reasonably calm.

  • Hearing that the Southern Senatorial District congresses have been rescheduled….Each time an election is rescheduled, an Imoke stooge wins, let’s see how this one will pan out.

    Can impunity continue to reign like this in Cross River State? Hmmmm…
