Calabar South, Akpabuyo, and Bakassi Federal Constituency (CAB) Forum has inaugurated its pioneering Executive Council in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
Speaking during the inauguration, the new Chairman of the forum and Member Representing Bakassi in the State House of Assembly, Dr. Ekpo Bassey pledged not to lead the organization astray.
He sued for unity amongst leaders from the three LGAs (Calabar South, Akpabuyo, and Bakassi local government areas) that make up the forum reiterating that “the forum seeks to bring lasting peace and unity amongst the people. This is not the time to be on two sides. This is the time to be united.”
On his part the CAB Forum Secretary, Mr. Ene Ekpe Ekpenyong, promised that the objectives and vision of the organization are geared towards societal progress.
The inauguration ceremony ended with the group throwing their weight behind the second term bid of the State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade.
