His Excellency,

Sir Benedict Ayade,

Governor,

Cross River State.

 

Sir,

THE EMERGENCE OF BARRISTER ATTAH OCHINKE AS PDP CANDIDATE FOR IKOM/BOKI FEDERAL CONSTITUENCY, CROSS RIVER STATE: A CLARION CALL FOR APC TO PRESENT THEIR BEST.

Politics they say is a game of number, and the credibility and acceptability of the individual Candidate(s) will play a very crucial role in swinging the votes during the 2023 general elections, especially with the recent Innovation of the the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) to introduce the BVAS machine in the 2023 general election.

The APC being a progressive party should endeavour to always consider the interests of the masses in the process of choosing its Candidates for an election. The essence of internal democracy is extremely important, because any Candidate that is a product of the people’s collectivism, will definitely have an edge in the main election. This is because, his or her Candidature will trigger those that were part of the process of his victory in the Primary election to also stake their neck to protect his victory in the general election.

This issue of Consensus by APC must be totally jettisoned,if it is done with the motive of foisting an unpopular candidate on the People.

The Boki people by nature are Republicans that would never accept to be compelled to do what is considered absurd in the name of loyalty to the Party.

With the emergence of Barrister Attah Ochinke as the PDP Candidate for Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency, the onus of winning the 2023 House of Representative election in Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency is in the hands of the APC by presenting a credible and sellable Candidate for the general election.

As a Party, it is very ridiculous to always insist on the use of consensus as against direct or indirect Primary. Consensus most times breed discontent among aspirants and their supporters.

If APC is interested in broadening the political horizon and increase participation of those at the grassroot in order to arouse their enthusiasm, the APC should listen to the opinion of the majority when it has to do with the mode of Primary.

The choice of the APC winning Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency, is in their hands. The emergence of a thorough bred and experience Political strategist like the PDP Candidate is enough warning to the APC to root for a very credible and popular Candidate that can win the general election.

It is in the best interest of the APC to take decisions relating to the quality of its Candidates as a major criteria and panacea for winning the general election.

At this point that we find ourselves, primordial sentiments and Political patronage should not be considered by the APC in picking its Candidate. Only a formidable Candidate can secure victory for the APC in the general election.

It should be noted that a credible and transparent process, where all the aspirants are given a level playing field does not admit of tinkering and tampering with a list of delegates generated from the components wards which are of public knowledge and which are with INEC and security operatives. The people of Ikom/Boki will vehemently resist such fraudulent act as the crisis that will ensued will mar the chance of success of the Party in the main election.

The State actors currently attempting to fraudulently tamper with the list at the National Headquarters of the Party should be mindful of the possible effect of their act.

Finally, those bent on imposing any preferred Candidate on the people of Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency should be mindful of the fact that the days of writing results and impunity are gradually fading away from our political landscape. Thanks in advance,as I count on your Political sagacity to be courageous to take the right decision for the collective interests of the Party.

 

Long Live APC!

Long Live Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency!!

Long Live Cross River State!!!

Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria!!!!
