APC Chieftain Wants 2nd Term For C’River Gov



A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State, Comr Godwin Akpama, has called on party stalwarts from the state chapter of the APC to join the band wagon for the adoption of incumbent governor, Ben Ayade as governor of Cross River State in 2019, alleging that leaders of the APC are not serious with the ambition to take over power from PDP in the state.

Akpama, made the call while lambasting some top leaders of the party over what he described as inability of the party leaders to work with one another, saying that the unity in the party, has been depleted by attitude of the party leaders.

  He said that the only way to make the leaders of the party pay dearly for their misbehaviour is to join the band wagon for the adoption of Prof Ben Ayade, who he claimed, has been working very hard to transform the state.

Akpama, who spoke yesterday, angrily on the disunity among party leaders in Calabar, maintained that by his estimation, some leaders of the APC are not serious with the business of taking over power from the PDP in the state. He accused some leaders of holding nocturnal meetings with influential people in Ayade’s cabinet, so as to get juicy contracts, only to turn around in the daytime to fool unsuspecting members of the party.

Akpama, an immediate past chairman for Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC), accused the leadership of APC of failing to do all that was required to be done to ensure that the APC produces a governor in the 2019 elections. He called on all party supporters to adopt Gov Ayade for second term irrespective of the party affiliation since he has the potentials of taking the state to an enviable height.

“To be frank, our leaders have failed us due to the greed and quest for power and selfish interest!

“Why would men, who brand themselves as leaders of our party, polarise the party instead of walking as one body, don’t they know that unity is strength? The former IPAC boss queried.
