Senator John Owan Enoh has finally been shortlisted as the APC Governorship candidate for the Cross River State 2019 general election by INEC.
The information was made available to our newsroom by Mr. Bassey Ita, State APC Publicity Secretary.
The statement reads in part, “On behalf of the entire organs and arms of our great party, All Progressives Congress in the State, may I heartily congratulate most especially Senator John Owan Enoh, our Governorship candidate as well as all the Senatorial candidates, House of Representatives candidates and House of Assembly candidates for scaling through the tough screening hurdle of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and making the commission’s final list of candidates.
“Beyond making the INEC list, some of you were exposed to some sort of unnecessary tortuous situations which put undue pressure on your resources, energy and time that would have been applied early enough in quelling the rebellious opposition against our quest for change.
“It is indeed important to State that this has been a tough and tortuous journey for which you deserve the ‘succour’ of our appreciation.
“Congratulations and may God be for you and all of us the strength to carry on to the end which is victory in the coming elections”, the statement reads.
The state chapter of the APC has been enmeshed in factional crisis that have seen both Senator Owan Enoh and Pastor Usani Usani, Minister of Niger Delta, both laying claim to being the party’s governorship flag bearer in the 2019 election.
