The opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Cross River state is experiencing cracks within its fold as a result of the choice of who emerges as Deputy Governor candidate of the party in respect of the 2023 general elections.

Wednesday witnessed a protest against the eventual emergence of Mrs Emana Duke Ambrose-Amahwe as the Deputy Governor candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Cross River.

A population of young persons where seen protesting and chanting the phrase ‘we no go gree ooooo, we no go gree’ along the stretch of Mary Slessor Avenue in Calabar Municipality through to the secretariat of the party in the state.

At the locked entrance of the PDP state secretariat these protesters were heard to be singing ‘Emana we no want you! Go to the kitchen! We no go gree!’

These protesting young persons were also seen with numerous placards having sundry descriptions: ‘the south shouldn’t be a working tools (sic)’, ‘Emana must work for others, wait for others’, ‘What happened between Donald Duke and Mark Ukpo in 1998, will repeat itself’, ‘We say no to imposition and dictatorship’, etc.

Recall that Ambrose-Amahwe was screened last week by the screening committee of the PDP in Abuja.
