The gubernatorial campaign of Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade ended Tuesday with moves to reconcile the differences between State lawmaker, Mr. Matthew Olory and federal lawmaker, Mr. Daniel Asuquo.

CrossRiverWatch gathered that there was no love lost between the duo who served at different times as Chairmen of Akpamkpa local government area over the last Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary elections for the Akamkpa/Biase federal constituency which Mr. Asuquo, a two term lawmaker, won after several intrigues which saw the name of Mr. Olory purportedly removed from the ballot paper.

The quarrel is said to have been over Mr. Asuquo’s intention to retain the position in order to give him an edge over others as the position of Governor is expected to be zoned to the southern Senatorial district in 2023 much to the chagrin of Mr. Olory and other PDP bigwigs in the local government area including the former State Chairman of the party, Mr. John Okon.

And, Mr. Ayade while addressing the stakeholders’ at the local government Secretariat shortly after speaking to a crowd of supporters outside, charged Olory to work for Asuquo.

He later met with the Traditional Rulers Council where he pledged to improve their welfare. The campaign team later left for Odukpani local government area where he promised to construct the first meaning super highway, afterwards he moved to consult with the traditional rulers promising also to improve their welfare and increase their monthly stipends if re-elected into office come May 2019.
