"Don't discriminate between old and new members if we must take over CRS", Prof. Nyong admonishes Party leaders

| 09 September 2018 | Ukorebi Esien

An erudite scholar, a Professor of Petroleum Geology and a front line gubernatorial aspirant under the aegis of the All Progressive Congress, High Chief (Prof.) Eyo Etim Nyong has called on the leadership and members of his party in Cross River state to imbibe peace and oneness and not to discriminate between founding and new members of the party as they approach the 2019 general elections, as this is the only way they can achieve success in their aspiration of taking over Cross River State.

Prof. Nyong who was speaking at the declaration ceremony of a Senatorial hopeful, Prince Bassey Otu, Saturday in Calabar enjoined the party to forget about the sentiment of who just joined the party or those who are the founding members of the party, rather the party leaders should take advantage of everyone and key into what God is delivering to the party.

Nyong who himself is said to be one of the founding members of APC in CRS may have in his usually good nature advocated for some of his fellow contenders in the gubernatorial race when he said: 

"I plead with all members to forget about who were the founding members who are the newcomers, and so on and so forth. 

We need to stand together as one house to take advantage of what God is delivering to us for the good of our people and for the future of Cross River state."

The grass root politician further expressed his disappointment in the current leadership of the state, stating that "there's almost no leadership in the state" as such Cross Riverians are missing out of the several benefits, policies and initiatives of the Federal Government. He therefore urged everyone to align with Prince Otu whom he described as a man of Integrity to deliver the many national deliverables to the people.

Speaking further, the handsome looking Professor Nyong revealed that Cross River is fast becoming an APC state, which he said is a welcome development, while calling on all Cross Riverians to stand by him in rescuing the state from further decay, as he looks forward to 2019 when the party will celebrate the outcome of all their  collective struggles.

It should be recalled that Prof. Nyong had recently declared to contest for the governorship stool of the state and in his declaration ceremony, he had stated clearly how he intends to positively impact on the fortune of the state.
According to him, the overall vision of his proposal will be to target SDGs and attract international supports to build the state.

He also said his governance will focus on "wealth creation, Agriculture, education, health, environmental and waste management, tourism, security, provision of infrastructures, women and Youths development/empowerment, empowerment of physically challenged and disabled persons, pension and gratuity, information and communication, and good governance."
