Mammoth crowds gather at the
Margaret Ekpo International Airport to welcome their own, the Incumbent representing southern senatorial district at
the national assembly today Wednesday 24 December 2014 in the person of Senator
Prince Bassey Edet Otu.
Senator who is believed to be arriving from Abuja transcends the mere fact that
the Sweet Prince is representing these lot, but is a demonstration of the true
allegiance constituents of Nigeria’s south southern senatorial district owe
this amiable and distinguished law maker. That is to say that these
constituents are sending a direct message of displeasure to the hierarchy in
the state chapter of the PDP, especially the Governor Liyel Imoke,that they are
not comfortable with the decision of the party hierarchy to deprive Prince
Bassey Otu the senatorial slot in the last concluded CRS PDP Primaries where
Mr. Gershom Bassey emerged the winner of the primary polls to represent
South-South Nigeria at the Senate. Infact, one of the aide to the Senator
describe the just concluded primary a sham.
Senator Bassey Otu is more likely to officially defect to the Labour Party(LP).
In the main, it is purported that Mr. Jeddy Agba, one of the gubernatorial
aspirants in the CRS governorship race, who withdrew from contesting in the
just concluded state primaries is declared to being the concensus gubernatorial
candidate on the LP ticket. Negroid Haven will update her audience as events
It has also been tipped that the presidency is
standing solidly behind Senator Otu on the premise that if cross riverians do
not support the Mr. Gershom Bassey in the 2015 general elections then these may
affect negatively the forthcoming election of President Jonathan. The logic
becomes, according to an aide of Sen. Otu who pleaded anonymity, since LP at
the national level has adopted Goodluck Jonathan then they should adopt the
Sweet Prince, if not the incumbent senotor would have gone to a more viable
opposition in the All Progressive Congress (APC).
It may surprise you to know that
Bassey Edet Otu has officially defected to the Labour Party. He said this to
his supporters at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport.
