Mr. Baron Eyo has succeeded Governor Ben Ayade’s Special Adviser on Inter Party Affairs, Mr. Austin Ibok as the new Chairman of Labor Party in Cross River State.

Baron was presented unanimously from the Southern Senatorial District of the State; the same zone where the immediate past Chairman is from.

The emergence of Eyo was by a State congress held Friday in Calabar presided over by Mr. Bobo Atari-Adou, National Vice Chairman South-South.

Bobo while speaking, chastised members of the party for their inability to win any public office in the State and urged them to be more faithful to the party.

He expressed worries about the financial commitment of members of the party in the State and lashed those playing anti party activities while calling on party faithfuls to openly identify them for appropriate sanctions including suspension or expulsion.

Earlier, the immediate past Chairman, Austin Ibok, who has since taken an appointment in the PDP led state government, resigned in accordance with the Labor Party constitution which states that when one gets a permanent appointment such a person should resign.

Ibok lauded those who supported his reign vowing never to leave the party. In the same vain he apologized to those he might have stepped on their toes asking them to support the new government.

The new Cross River State Labor Party Chairman, Baron Eyo in his acceptance speech pledged to work for the entire good of the party not individuals.

He said his tenure would be known for open doors policy and would leave up to expectations.

Before the process was completed there was a heated argument which stalled the congress for about an hour. The argument was over the suspension of two members of the party, (Mr. Daniel Oku – Publicity Secretary and Mr. Emmanuel Adie – State Treasurer) for failing to return certain amount of money.

The congress was observed by John Ekawhe and Liyel Ivara of INEC in Cross River State.
