Ogoja sons and daughters have endorsed Ambassador Emmanuel Asegem to represent Ogoja/Yala in the House of Representative.
The endorsement took place when he stopped briefly on his way to Bekwarra to honor late Mike Ogar, 4th Speaker of Cross River State House of Assembly, where he was cheered by the youths and friends on his interest to contest the represent them.
In his speech, Ambassador Asegem advised the good people of Ogoja to support the administration of his Excellency Sen. Ben Ayade who is the leader of APC, the ruling party in Cross River State and the South South Geo-political Zone.
He added that Ayade, in collaboration with the party leadership will give a good candidate “who will wipe our tears.”
He further assured the people that if the leadership considers him for the Ogoja/Yala House of Representatives vacant position, he will surely make the party and the electorate proud drumming support for the Chairman of the party, Barrister Alphonsus Eba.
The youths who besieged him stated clearly their position to give him maximum support that is believed to complement the effort of His Excellency, the Governor and the Not Too Young To Rule Act, which is a major breakthrough in President Buhari’s government and support for young people to have their voice in the helm of affairs.
Asegem promised never to waiver in his characteristic humanitarian and advocacy for peace. He emphasized that he would go back to Ogoja for proper consultation at the right time.
