The Gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Cross River State Professor Ben Ayade says his administration if voted into power will continue from where his predecessor left off.
Speaking at the flag off of his campaign at the Ogoja township stadium in Ogoja local government area, the first term serving senator stressed the need for Cross Riverians to take charge of their destinies and complain less about the poverty rate while extolling the virtues of Governor Liyel Imoke.
“poverty itself is a sin, when you put yourself above your problem, your body is free, your only limited by the problems you acknowledge, let your poverty not be the discussion, let it obey the Jacobean theory”
“ let me assure you of something, in reverse tachometry, when you realize that the man who has a history that is akin to yours, a man who shares the same destiny at any point of yours, if a man like that rose from nothing and today is something, because he made it, you too can make it.”
“ I give you this in my honour, in the history of mankind , in medieval times, it has never been done ….a man like senator liyel imoke, a shining star will bring a shining star and tell you I want to make you brighter, it doesn’t happen, can you give him three gbosa.”
“my dear people, today I stand before you, as a son of the north, I want to assure you, one thing you will get from me is that we are going to sustain and continue what we are doing from senator Liyel Imoke, we are going to bring in new energy, we are going to be vibrant and all that we must celebrate, accentuate them within the conformity of what we have agreed” he said drawing a loud cheer from supporters.
The campaign continues today be in Yala local government area.
