Mr. Daniel Obo has opined that PDP in Cross River State has no formidable opposition that can oust the incumbent administration of Sen. Ben Ayade, asserting that Ayade will have a smooth ride back to the Perogrino (Cross River State Government) House in the forthcoming general election.
Obo speaking to CrossRiverWatch TV in Calabar when fielding questions regarding his returning to PDP from APC made the postulation.
He further averred that political leaders in Cross River have failed the State by not having a political philosophy as well as not grooming the younger generation.
According to him, “Politics is not a do or die affair. I keep telling people that the PDP does not have an opposition at the moment, Governor Ben Ayade at the moment does not have opposition until it is certain that the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs is running election thats when Ayade will have opposition but for now, it is the aggrieved PDP members that are going to express themselves in the other flank.
“If it becomes obvious that the Minister of the Niger Delta is flying the flag of the APC, I can tell you that we are contesting election with the opposition but what we have here on ground, its PDP versus PDP and the higher PDP will win and if it remains like this that means there is no election. It is just a walk over.” He maintained.
He revealed that his choice of returning to PDP is because APC has no plan for his people (Obubra) which is his priority in politics and wont support any party that doesnt cherish Obubra.
Mr. Obo had resigned his appointment as Director General of Cross River State Recreation Park Agency as published on 30th June 2017.
