The Young Progressive Party (YPP) guber candidate in Cross River State, Mr. Joseph Coco-Bassey has committed to the Governance Agenda for an Inclusive Nigeria (GAIN) if elected.

GAIN envisages a progressive nation where the rights and freedom of youths, women, and Persons With Disabilities (PWDs), are fully realized.

Before signing the document, Cocoa-Bassey encouraged eligible voters to come out and cast their vote voluntarily, asserting that “it is the problems associated with voting that has caused voter apathy and that has led to recycling.”

After embracing the initiative, he maintained that the Vote Not Fight Election, No Be War campaign implemented by FACE Initiative in the South-South “might be small today, but it’s promising.”

The YPP guber candidate discouraged election vices, stating that, “we need to encourage women because they are strong and dedicated, but they have not galvanized themselves well.”

He pledged to work with the marginalized community if elected.
