Gershom Bassey, it is very crystal clear that the Southern Senatorial District in this dispensation has been sweltering in the heat of ineffective representation occasioned by empty as well as unfulfilled promises, politics of hijack and self centeredness, where deceit becomes the order of the day whereas dividends of Democracy is sunk into oblivion".

  The group haven established that Ntufam  Ekpo Okon is the set man to rescue the Southern Cross River From oblivion went on to to extol the sterling qualities of the Odukpani born political leader. 
"Ntufam Ekpo Okon, you are indeed a wagon of Integrity, an Erudite Scholar, a great Philanthropist, the Man in our Neighborhood, the Real Party Man who will remain the most outstanding candidate of the PEOPLE'S DEMOCRATIC PARTY [P.D.P] to face and withstand the heat of the opposition parties in the General Elections."
