The All Progressives Congress (APC) Cross River State has confirmed Chief Clement Ebri, former Governor of the State as the Party Leader.
The confirmation was one of the decisions reached at a meeting of the State Executive Committee (SEC) of the party in Calabar Saturday.
According to the new Publicity Secretary, Mr. Bassey Ita in a press release made available to our newsroom, the party agreed that Chief Ebri is highly qualified for the position by virtue of belonging to all the organs of the party coupled with his leadership abilities.
