A group of physically challenged men have joined the campaign team of the Labour party Senatorial candidate for Cross River Southern Senatorial District, Senator Bassey Otu. The group took to the streets of Calabar recently to campaign for their principal’s second term bid.

Speaking to CrossRiverWatch, Mr. Ekpenyong Akiba, media assistant to Senator Otu, told our reporter that the physically challenged people went to them voluntarily and asked to be part of the campaign team.

His word: “The handicapped and less privileged approached us that they are aware of the political happenings in the state and that Prince Otu is their candidate, since the PDP don’t want him they want to help take his gospel to the people by themselves which they have never done before”.

Continuing, Akiba said, “We as a team decided to encourage them, they are mostly Hausa’s and they have leadership structures across the state”.

He revealed that they have put in place all mechanisms to ensure their safety because they are prone to danger since defection is not treated with ease here in Cross River State.

On his part, the leader of the group, Mr. Musa Abdullahi affirmed that they volunteered to campaign for Senator Otu because he has been faithful to them.

He added that it is their innate desire that the Senator goes for a second term, maintaining that “We know things will be better if he goes back, he is our man”.
