From Ijaw National Academy, Tears OfJoy For Dickson

Samuel Perekinmi is from Ekeremor Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

The race for the Cross River Northern Senatorial District ticket will be very dicey as no one is sure at the moment who will get it. But everything points to the fact that there won't be an automatic ticket for Rose Oko, the senator currently representing the senatorial district.

Zoning will determine the political equation in terms of power sharing, particularly, the governorship tickets, among the political parties just the way it happened in 2015. This does not mean aspirants won't spring up from the three senatorial zones. But parties will consciously pick the eventual candidates that would fly their flags in 2019 on the basis of a zone or character of the person with the credentials to easily win the election.
