Southern APC Group Buys Nomination Form for Owan Enoh

The Cross River Southern APC Group has bought and presented the governorship nomination form for Senator Owan Enoh who declared to run for the governorship of the state at Ikom on Wednesday.

The form was presented in Calabar to the governorship hopeful at the weekend by a former member of the House of Representatives and member of the group, Bishop Alex Ukam.

Ukam, while presenting the nomination form prayed that the Holy Spirit would lead the governorship aspirant and that at the end he would emerge victorious.

Responding, Owan Enoh said “in the course of my political journey, the most difficult part is when favours are done to me. My politics is characterized by giving to people. Before my declaration at Ikom, the group promised to assist me financially in the course of my campaign. The group made good its promise when the chairman of the group, Ntufam Maurice Omin Iso, asked for my account number and what was sent to me was huge.

“I am overwhelmed by this profound show of commitment. Buying the form for me is the greatest demonstration of the commitment to support me. I will not disappoint you. People see us as serious. Etuboms almost gave me a near-adoption when I visited them on Friday here in Calabar. I went on a trouble-shooting mission and what I got was a near-adoption.

“Ayade has made removing him from office easy and people see us as serious. You should not stop at getting me the nomination form. You will see me through winning the party primary and the main election.”

Joe Etene, secretary of the group and former member of the Cross River state House of Assembly, in his closing remarks said “from the shores of Bakassi to the hill top of Obudu and other territories in Cross River, earthquake has started and would not stop until you occupy the governor's office in 2019.”

Speaking to journalists after his remarks, he cleared the air on the issue of zoning, saying zoning was for four years and the re-election of an incumbent governor was based on his performance.

“In APC, the governorship candidate can come from anywhere. Zoning has put us where we are today. Ayade won't be the first incumbent governor to be removed from office.”
