No fewer than 13 gubernatorial candidates from different political parties in Cross River State have pitched their tents with Sen. John Owan Eno, APC governorship candidate.
According to the group in a press conference Thursday in Calabar at Jorany Hotel the present administration of Sen. Ben Ayade is full of propaganda and not fit to be given a second term.
According to the group head, “We are tired of having a family government, we can’t be in a State where things are not going right and we keep quiet. It is because of that reason you see that some of us are Pastors, we have left the pulpit to the field to solve the problem.
“Owan Eno is God’s sent and watch out he’s going to win. Personally I’ve been Owan’s lover and supporter that have never met him but have been persecuted severely. Plus APC we are 14 out of about 28 candidates in the State, watch out we’ll win the election, we know what to door, our congregation will work for you (Owan Eno).” He concluded.
Responding after the interest merger the APC governorship candidate, Sen. John Owan Eno thanked the 13 guber candidates for finding him worthy.
According to him, “Why I really appreciate their gesture is because they looked for me even before it got to the time I would have looked for them, that’s how important it is.”
He further accused administration of Sen. Ben Ayade of corrupt practices. “Only when money is coming into the State you see projects and that’s how they take our money out, there’s no project that you can point to that has a visible running cost, only him and his family knows projects worth, all that will change.” He said.
The 13 guber candidates and their parties are: Pastor Ntami Efoge (Peoples’ Party of Nigeria), Pastor Charles Okoi (Alliance of Social Democrat), Chief Erete Okposong (KOWA), Dr. Kenneth Brown (Alliance for Democracy), Moses Adoyo (Better Nigeria Progresssives Party), and Dr. Charles Offiong Effraim (Democratic Alliance).
