That a gesture of this magnitude should by no means be abused by the people of the Central Senatorial District

The Northern and Southern senatorial districts also parade the finest of her people that are competent and capable enough of governing our collective heritage.

That, the office of the governor  for the purpose of the 2019 elections should by no means be contested for by an indigene of the Central Senatorial District

That our traditional rulers should save us by admonishing all indigenes of the central district who are currently aspiring from any political party to withdraw such aspiration.

That any political party that gives governorship ticket to any aspirant from central will fail.


That the Cross River Central Peoples Forum will support and contribute funds to any other candidates produces by the North or South.

It is worth knowing that as at press tine it is only the All Progressive Congress APC that have filed candidates from the central senatorial district of the state in the persons of Sen. John Owan  Enoh, a current senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from Etung local government area and Pastor Usani Uguru  Usani  a current minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from Yakurr local government  area. 

This decision would indeed be desatrious on the aspiration of the duo who have been working tirelessly to see their dream come true.
