2023: No Going Back On Zoning In Cross River – NYCN Vows


January 25, (THEWILL) – The Cross River State Chapter of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, says there is no going back on zoning in the state.

Comrade Dan Obo, Chairman of the State chapter of the NYCN disclosed this in Calabar during a Town Hall engagement with youth leaders from the southern senatorial district of the state.

He said the council has endorsed the candidature of the APC gubernatorial candidate, Senator Prince Bassey Edet Otu, and also adopted the party because of its youth-friendly disposition.

“We are not going back on supporting a southern governor for Cross River State, and in doing so, we must win because we have seventy percent of the votes.

“We cannot have seventy percent of the votes and then lose elections.

“We have come here to reaffirm our commitment that we are in for this and are not going back.

“For today, it is visible to the blind that the political party that has more going people flying their flag for 2023 is the APC.

“As an institution, we will stand for a party that gives more young people the ticket.

“We at the Youth Council will support the APC and will mobilise all our youths to stand with the APC, and God willing, we will win,” he said.

He explained that the position of governor in the state goes around the three Senatorial zones of the state and for equity’s sake, it’s the turn of the south to produce the next governor.

He also said the APC has one of them on its ballot paper as a running mate and that the APC gubernatorial candidate engaged the youths on his plans for youth development in the state.

He said they are confident the youths will triumph because It is no longer time to hijack materials and send youths to kill themselves, but the BVAS will speak for itself.

He accused some leaders in the state of spreading lies in the course of their campaign, maintaining that the only solution to this desperation against equity and justice is for “us to get our PVCs and then make sure that we vote to stabilise our polity and Cross River State so that tomorrow we will not fight.”

The NYCN helmsman also advised some leaders in the state to desist from telling lies and also denigrating the office of the governor as they take exception to this.
