It is indeed a breath of fresh air waking up to a new dawn of tranquility in our great Party in Cross River State. It is unarguably, the beginning of many successes for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) family in the State.
Elated by this development, I most sincerely congratulate our great Party for the successful conduct of her congress and the emergence of principal officers to pilot the affairs of our party without any form on rancour or acrimony.
This successful and unprecedented peacefully conducted State congress is an indication that victory looms in all corners for the Cross River State PDP family which would culminate into victory for the good people of our dear state.
Once again, I congratulate Cross River State PDP for achieving this great feat, as it is the first breath of fresh air, not just for our great party but for the people of the state.
Also, I most passionately congratulate the Chairman of our party, Venatius Ikem Esq. His emergence is laudable and a certainty that with his wealth of experience having held national offices will positively impact on the State as he propels the PDP to victory come 2023.
As a staunch member of the PDP and one who is familiar with your many capabilities, I am optimistic that with you as the captain of this ship, our great party will reclaim power in the coming elections.
I also wish to commend and congratulate Rt Hon Frank Adah for his show of sportsmanship in conceding to this consensus, the party is grateful to him.
While I congratulate you on a new beginning, I urge you not to overlook the coincidence in your emergence as the State Chairman of the PDP in Cross River State two days before your birthday.
You must continue the good work with even greater vigour, utmost sincerity and accountability to write your name in gold and on the sands of time.
This is wishing you the very best of your birthday filled with endless possibilities. Happy birthday Venatius Ikem Esq.
Sir Arthur Jarvis Archibong.
