According to results obtained from an online poll conducted by the publisher of The Warden an online news platform, Mr. Ekeng Inyang, the senator Representing Cross River State Southern Senatorial district in the red chambers, Sen. Gershom Bassey was flawlessly beaten by a onetime Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) state chairman, Ntufam Ekpo Okon who is being rumored to be interested in the Federal Job.

Results obtained from the poll shows that Ntufam Okon handed Sen. Bassey the merciless defeat by clinching 82% of the total votes cast, while Sen. Bassey went home with 18% of the votes cast.

According to Mr.  Inyang, ‘However, this isn't a determinant of one's popularity or a representation of the masses mandate because it must take voters who are eligible and registered with PVCs to make that call.
Also understanding clearly the peculiarity of party politics of the PDP where the most credible is often times NOT selected for whatever reasons best known to them.
The prerogative as to who gets selected lies just within the hands of very few elites who then channeled the command to field agents to deliver on their decision with an open display of deceit to the general public’.

Mr. Inyang also believes Ntufam Ekpo Okon’s victory at the poll was a show of strength over Senator Gershom Bassey.
