Ayade can't stand my billboards, tell him I'm ready for him" - Sen Owan Enoh

The Daily News Nig can can report. 

Owan disclosed this to newsmen during a World Press Conference held in Calabar, Tuesday, 1st January, 2018. He accused the current PDP administration of engaging some disgruntled elements to destroy his billboards, stating that in some cases, the administration is making up flimsy and unattainable excuses on why his billboards should not be erected in some locations around Calabar metropolis and other places across the state. 

"This is bad and outdated politics to say the least... any attempt to destroy my governship campaign billboards in Calabar, Cross River State capital city, as it is already the trend, will be strongly resisted" he said. 

"We must state in very clear terms that from Wednesday 2nd January, 2019, our advertising agency that have been paid to mount our billboards across Calabar metropolis will be out there to mount them at the lawfully designated locations. We must warn that any attempt to destroy our billboards again will be strongly resisted and the APC in the will stage a state-wide protest against this act of intimidation and injustice. We are therefore calling on all heads of security agencies in the state to brace up to their constitutional responsibilities in maintaining peace and order throughout these electioneering campaigns in the state." He warned.
