Mr. Ekpo Okon, the running mate of Senator John Owan-Enoh, a factional gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State for the 2019 general elections has said his principal is determined to make a difference in the State.
Mr. Okon stated this when he was formally presented to the stakeholders of the party recently where he also expressed his believe that many more will john hands with them to emerge victorious at the polls.
“I listened to my principal as he spoke, the confidence he exudes is not for nothing. It is because he is determined and it is possible,” Okon said after being introduced by Mr. Owan-Enoh.
He continued: “I want all of us to accept one thing, that we can become that critical instrument to make a difference in our state.
“I have looked at the faces I see here and these faces I consider as the foot soldiers who have been doing it in the past.
“There are so many others who are not here with you but I can assure you, they will be willing to be here and be a part of it, because they know what we did today.”
Mr. Okon had defected to the APC after losing out at the controversial Cross River southern senatorial primaries that threw up Senator Gershom Bassey as the candidate for the People’s Democratic Party for the 2019 general elections.
The decision to select him as running mate for Owan-Enoh has been described as a masterstroke as he is believed to be a heavyweight that will garner votes in the seven local government areas that make up southern Cross River.
