CrossRiverWatch has reliably gathered that Odey Ochicha, the Cross River State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in last Saturday’s elections has called the winner Senator Ben Ayade of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to congratulate him.
During the telephone call which was said to have been made at 11:20am this morning, Odey Ochicha congratulated Ayade for his victory and prayed God to give the governor elect wisdom to stare the affairs of the state successfully.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC last night declared Senator Ben Ayade, the PDP candidate governor elect having scored a total of 342,016 votes leaving Odey Ochicha of the APC in a distant second with a total of 53,983 votes while the Labor candidate, Fidelis Ugbo, came third with a total of 36,918 votes.
