In what may be seen as a show of sportsmanship, the PDP and APC in Cross River State are both optimistic about the outcome of the Ogoja/Yala federal constituency and Akpabuyo State constituency by-elections.

Speaking to journalists in one of the polling units, the ruling APC State Chairman, Barrister Alphonsus Ogar Eba said, “We must understand what we are doing now is for just 15 months, they are all my brothers, I was in PDP yesterday, today the have the right to remain in PDP, I’m in APC. Once they realize that they are a minority and their number is inconsequential, they will want to align.”

On his part, Sen. Jarigbe Agom of the PDP told journalists that earlier the security agencies were very professional.

Sen. Jarigbe alleged that “I know the APC led Government in Cross River State tried to influence them and they declined.”

So far no record of violence has affected the by-election activities in the three local government areas participating, Ogoja, Yala, and Akpabuyo. Though some of the machines seem to be slow.

In Akpabuyo, it is observed that preferential treatment is given to those with disabilities in two polling units because they have two disabled persons as Assistant Officers.
