The All Progressive Congress, APC candidate for Bekwarra state constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly, CRSHA Comrade Akwaji Henry Omang has opined that he will go with his constituents to where they cannot go alone if elected.
Akwaji, a graduate lawyer from the Faculty of Law in the University of Calabar, UNICAL, barred his mind in an
impromptu interview at the Ugidi market, Abouchiche Bekwarra when CrossRiverWatch caught sight of him supervising the erection of some of his campaign billboards sponsored by the Bekwarra Progressive Forum, BPF.
He stressed the need for Bekwarra people to endure the postponement of election a little longer as it is their fundamental right that cannot be taken away from them. His words, My message rex judicata to my people is that they should keep faith and hold on to the change they have embraced in APC so that we can get a pragmatic difference, he said.
Speaking further on his campaign he said, I have gone far, my interest is the Bekwarra nation. I want to go with Bekwarra people where they cannot go alone. As you can see, I am here in Bekwarra and have been here for a long time, I am talking my people into understanding the purpose of good governance and God is helping me, my people are positively behind me”.
On the postponed general elections, he stated that “If you want to look at it from the surface it is undoubtful that the government of the day is playing the same pranks that have always given them an edge. However the optimism is glaring that what will be must be”.
He however lamented over the poor percentage in the delivery of Permanent Voters Cards, PVC and expressed optimism regarding his party’s chances of winning in his constituency and.
I have observed that the response to the acquisition of PVC’s is low, I also discovered that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has rolled out more personnel. Adding that, window period or no window period the APC can make do with the already distributed PVC’s and still achieve success.” he concluded.
