Obanliku stands still for Ayade as governor canvasses support for Tinubu, Otu, other APC candidates

In continuation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign in the Northern senatorial district of Cross River State, Governor Ben Ayade Monday led the party’s campaign train to the Obanliku local government area where a monster crowd of supporters attended the party’s rally.

The governor who is the party’s Senatorial candidate for Cross River North and the other candidates including the gubernatorial candidate, senator Bassey Otu, House of Reps member representing Obanliku/ Bekwara/ Obudu federal constituency, Hon. Legor Idagbo, state APC Chairman, Barrister Alphonsus Eba and other party chieftains had earlier held a consultative meeting with the Obudu Council of Traditional Rulers who endorsed and gave their royal blessings to them.

The campaign train also held a strategic Town Hall meeting with critical stakeholders in the council including the youths, community leaders, market women, religious leaders and non-indigenes.

The venue of the Town Hall meeting was filled to the rafters and for several hours drumming and chanting of “Ayade, Back to the Senate”, Prince Otu is the next Governor” punctuated speeches by the governor and the other candidates.

At the campaign rally held at the expansive ground of the Obanliku local government secretariat, security agents had a hectic day controlling the massive but ecstatic crowd who insisted on catching a glimpse of the governor, Otu and the other candidates.

Upon sighting Ayade on the stage, the crowd went into a frenzy, ceaselessly professing their support for him and all APC candidates.

Speaking, an elated Ayade expressed gratitude to the people of the council for the warm reception.

Describing Obanliku as home, the Governor said he was sure of a 100 per cent vote of the people.

According Ayade, “Obanliku is my home, I’m home with my people and I’m 100 percent sure of my people’s vote.

“Therefore, I cannot come to Obanliku and ask for your votes, but l will ask for your votes for my own boss, the Jagaban, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, our presidential candidate.He has the capacity and competence to fix Nigeria the way he fixed Lagos.

“I ask for your votes for Senator Bassey Otu. Equity, fairness and justice demand that Cross River South produces the next governor.

“Besides, Otu is a good man. He is qualified and ready for the job, he is competent, he has the experience.

“I ask for your votes for Legor Idagbor for the House of Reps and Sunny Achunekang for the House of Assembly; they are eminently qualified, tried, tested and proven.”

On their part, Senator Otu and Hon. Idagbor assured the people of unprecedented socio-economic and infrastructural development if elected.
