The political base of the PDP candidate for the Obudu/Obanlikwu/Bekwara Federal Constituency, Barrister Legor Idagbo, swelled yesterday with the decision of former spokesman of the ruling PDP, Barrister Venatius Ikem to join forces with the Bekwara born politician in Saturday’s election.

The joining of forces by the duo is perceived by many as an alliance that cannot be defeated by any other factor in the constituency. In a campaign event yesterday, Barrister Vena asked the voters to elect Legor Idagbo in Saturday’s election.

When CrossRiverWatch contacted Barrister Ikem who many have misconceived to be having irreconcilable issues with Legor, he simply said: “Yes, I have joined Legor’s campaign. I believe he will win and we are on the field already to ensure that we achieve that.”

Some respondents who spoke to CrossRiverWatch over the development hailed the two leaders and encouraged their supporters to follow suit.

Barrister Awhan Ogar, in a reaction told CrossRiverWatch that, “This is a very important development for our constituency. Every right thinking citizen of our constituency should be happy when our leaders who are hitherto thought to be at logger heads mend fences and decide to work for the interest of people. Legor and Vena are our leaders from that zone and if they have decided to work together for the next election, then it is a done deal.”

Anthonia Atsuan, another respondent also said, “This will be a very serious blow on the opposition Labor Party who were hoping to draw from Vena’s support base and cause an upset in Obudu but with this alliance, all that is gone. The supporters of politicians should also continue to learn from the action of these two great leaders of our constituency that when politicians are at each other’s neck, supporters should be circumspect in their reactions and comments because you never can tell when they will make up. But on the whole it is a good thing for us and we hope that this has finally given PDP victory.”
