Early results from the polling unit of the Cross River state deputy governor, Mr. Efiok Cobham have shown that the deputy governor could not garner enough support to deliver for his party as promised.

Reports say that, Efiok Cobham lost his unit in Creek Town, Odukpani to the rival LP in the Senatorial and House of Representatives elections yesterday, while Chief Gershom Bassey is said to have upper hand in the areas controlled by Chief Ekpo Okon, the former State Chairman of PDP.

Prince Bassey Otu is also leading with wide margin in Akpabuyo, Bakassi, Calabar South and Calabar Municipality in the results announced in the collation centers in spite of the absence of result sheets in some areas.

No vital information has been gotten as to the situation in Akamkpa and Biase, two of the seven LGAs making up the Southern Senatorial District, though there was an initial incident of hijack of materials by hoodlum. Information is still being expected from the Northern Senatorial District where the electorates were and are still expected to choose between the absent PDP candidate Hon. Rose Oko and the LP candidate, Dr. Julius Okputu.

On the whole, preliminary counting of votes shows that President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan stole the show throughout Cross River State in the presidential election yesterday, though elections continued on today March 29, 2015.
