By Archibong Jeremiah

The Cross River State chapter of the African Action Congress, AAC has accused some Government officials for attempting to tilt the playing field for the October 31, 2020 Cross River North senatorial bye-election to favor some candidates.

The party’s Chairman, Citizen Agba Jalingo in a statement issued Saturday morning said that, some aides of Governor Ben Ayade in connivance with former members of the party who have been expelled used backchannels to influence the replacement of the name of it’s candidate, Dr. Dino Magam for the bye-election as well as attempt to foist an alien as Chairman of the party.

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Friday, published candidates details of nine political parties and the AAC says the name which appeared as its candidate is not a member of the party.
