APC Uyo Presidential rally: Usani Usani speakes out

It is no longer news that the APC South South presidential rally which held in Uyo yesterday, December, 28 saw the Cross River State factional gubernatorial candidate of the party, Sen John Owan Enoh lifting the Party's flag as it flag bearer for the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in the state.

According to the party's National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshimole while presenting the flag, "Sen Owan Enoh is one of those few Senators in the Senate that have shown loyalty to the president and commitment in the party".

Reacting to the event that led to the handing over of the flag to his arch rival, the Director General of the Usani Campaign organization, Mr. Ekpenyong told TDN that what happened at Uyo yesterday "is an act of ilegality and brazen display of contempt for the rule of law..."

He added that their camp is "...encouraged by the fact that the law will catch up with the Owan's camp, and they shall prevail".

Also reacting to the issue in a phone conversation, comrade Kalita Joe Aruku a strong supporter of the Usani gubernatorial ambition and a chieftain of the party told TDN that what happened in Uyo was just a ceremony, that the real thing will come up in January when Usani's name will be published by INEC. 

Also in a Social Media post, one Marvelous Bam, a diehard supporter of Usani's ambition encouraged other supporters to keep faith with their principal as she brought the Donald Duke's presidential experience with the SDP to the fore, where Duke received the party's flag as it presidential flag bearer but the court would later give the ticket to Prof Jerry Gana.

As soon as the party's flag was handed over to Sen. Enoh, his supporters took to social media to tunt the Hon Minister of Niger delta affairs, Pastor Usani Usani who leads the other faction of the party as its gubernatorial candidate. 

Recall that the APC primary gubernatorial elections in the state produced two candidates and this can be traced to an existing factional State working committee in the state.
