2019: Obanliku Agog As Ayade Campaigns

2019: Obanliku Agog As Ayade Campaigns

Cross River State governor, Prof Ben Ayade was received by a mammoth crowd when his campaign train visited the Obanliku Local Government Area for his campaigns. The  Sankwala Cenotaph, venue of the campaign rally overflowed.

Ironically, a similar crowd greeted the campaign train of the APC candidate, Senator John Owan Enoh penultimate week when his campaign train went there.

The crowd made up of artisans, okada riders and market women lined up all roads leading to the venue to cheer Ayade as his campaign train made its way.

The enthusiastic supporters danced and sang the governor's praises as they pledged to cast their votes for him and all PDP candidates in the coming elections.

When Ayade mounted the rostrum to speak, a deafening chant of "Ayade is a goal" rented the air, with the jubilant crowd surging forward to  physically touch the governor and pledge their support for his re-election.

It took spirited efforts of security agents to keep the ecstatic crowd at bay. Speaking later, the governor told the people of the council that Obanliku was strategic to the state as the council housing the famous Obudu ranch resort.

He promised speedy completion of the 147 Mfom-Okuku-Obudu ranch road project linking the five local government areas of Cross River North senatorial zone.

As a demonstration of the importance he attached to the ranch, the governor disclosed that the Obudu/Obanliku axis of the road had already been asphalted in order to aid easy access to the facility.

Ayade said:"l want to assure you all that as a proud son of the north, l won't fail you. Be rest assured that l am very committed to the welfare of our people and all the developmental projects we have started in the north will be completed in our quest to develop our zone in line with others."
