2023 Elections: Don’t compromise unity, integrity of PDP – Stakeholders, leaders warn aspirants

Stakeholders and leaders of the People’s Democratic Party in Central Cross River State have warned gubernatorial aspirants not to compromise the unity, cohesion and integrity of the party.

The stakeholders made this known in a five point communique released after its meeting which took place in Ugep, Yakurr LGA of Cross River State.

The communique was signed by over 30 stakeholders and leaders of the party in the senatorial district.

Some of the signatories include Hon Nicholas Ayua, Rt Hon Barr Sylvanus Odong, Elder John Ibara Agbor, Rt Hon Obeten Okorn Obeten, Rt Hon Bassey Eko Ewa, Rt Hon Chris Agibe, Rt Hon Nelson E Ofem, Rt Hon Itam Abang, Hon Emma Idaka, Mr Attah Ochinke as well as Hon Eko Atu.

The communique stated that, “The Central Senatorial District has provided leadership, direction and strength vital for the consistent success of PDP in the state, and resolved that this role has become even more imperative given the desire of the people of Cross River State to return PDP to power in 2023.

“The Central Senatorial District supports the principle of zoning and rotation of political responsibility in the state, and particularly supports the sustenance of the rotation of the governorship of Cross River State following the already established sequence amongst the various senatorial districts.

“That the governorship of Cross River State in 2023, following the established sequence of rotation, should be zoned to the Southern Senatorial District of Cross River State; this position is taken in the unshaken confidence that there are members of the party from the Southern Senatorial District with capacity, competence and commitment to lead the state and restore the developmental strides the state was hitherto known for.

“Party members across the state aspiring for offices and positions of responsibility on the platform of the party should maintain decorum in the conduct of their political activities and ensure that the unity, cohesion and integrity of the party are not compromised.

“These resolutions are not in support of any particular aspirant, and gubernatorial aspirants from the Southern Senatorial District are all encouraged to propagate their aspirations within the bounds of decency, while working to reconcile their various aspirations.”
