“The Town Hall Meeting which is scheduled to hold in Calabar on Sunday February 3, 2019 at 3pm, will provide the governorship candidates the opportunity to address about five hundred key leaders and pastors drawn from the two bodies that form the bloc.

“The governorship candidates will also be expected to answer questions regarding their ambitions.

“The purpose of the Town Hall Meeting is to provide the CPFN/ PFN bloc the opportunity to decide which candidate to support after listening to all of them.”
