The Cross River guber candidate of the National Rescue Movement, NRM, Mr. Patrick Solomon has vowed to take the State back to its glory days as the most peaceful and hospitable in the country.
The NRM Cross River governorship candidate pledged while joining the world to mark world peace day.
In a statement made available to our newsroom, he also called on Cross Riverians and Nigerians to eschew electoral vices in the 2023 general election.
He said he is “on a mission to rescue the State from its pitiable economic realities if voted to power.”
Furthermore, he maintained that “Governance is about one’s ability to understand the needs and wants of the people, I assure you that I know where we are lacking. I will implement economic reforms that will place the people at the center. Health, education, security, and transportation to deliver our abundant agricultural products and move easily will be my priority.
“Let us use the opportunity the world peace day offers to fathom the need to vote for a young and vibrant man to lead us. The number of inter and intra-communal crises shows the degree of discomfort brought about by small boundary issues that with a political will can be curtailed.”
He concluded by encouraging all to cast their vote, and ensure no irregularities occur during the election.
