Etung people, I forgive you all, it's time to work together and build Etung - Owan Enoh

The senator, representing Cross River Central senatorial district and current flag bearer of the All progressives Congress, APC has called on his immediate constituency and members of his home town, Etung Local Government Area to partner with him as he seeks to not only develops Etung local government area but the entire Cross River  State. 

Speaking at the All Progressives Congress' gubernatorial rally/town hall meetings with Royal Fathers in Etung, the gubernatorial hopeful said he is no more angry with anybody who has being fighting his several ambitions in Etung as he knows the fights and obstacles were needed to make him strong and just like the Biblical Joseph, he has decided to forgive everyone and wants to work with all to actualise the bigger picture. 

He informed the people that it was shameful to have heard that some people from Etung went to Calabar to say that he(John Owan Enoh) has been rejected by his own people. 

In his words:
"You know, last week there was a show of shame in Calabar. Some of our people went to calabar to say my good and  dear people of Etung have rejected me. The Etung people that I know cannot, will not, and will never reject  me. Not just because I am from Etung but because I work well for them. 

"Everyday that I have the chance to talk to all of you, I stand to tell you thank you. If you didn't support me in that first election, I will not be who I am today. So you transfer that match, the glorious match that has brought us to where we are today. 

"Today by the grace of God we stand to run for the highest office in the land. When we decide to run, we run to win, we don't just run anyhow. But when we run, we run and we win. We win not because we work hard but becuse God sees our heart. 

"God knows the reason why I am in politics, is because of the people. 
What I have not done for you, is what am not able to do for you. I 
Whatever I can do for u, I will keep doing for you". 

He however, said he holds nothing against them and even those who had been again his senatorial ambition in 2015, that he sees them as those who God used to make leave the PDP so he could be a gubernatorial candidate today. 

He used the opportunity to call on all Etung sons and daughters to come work with him as he promised to look into the needs of the Etung people when he becomes governor of the state. 

"Etung people we are not hungry, people, instead of being hungry people, we provide food for others. 

"Therefore, those Etung sons and daughters that are dancing Shocky in Calabar. Yes! That's what they have been doing there,  since they gave them appointment we don't know how many times they have a one home. 

And when they come, they come to show power. The best way to show power is to serve the people. If you are not serving the people you can't show them power 

"But am going to give you a message to them because they are our brothers and sisters. Tell them that all those nonsense things they started doing against me from when I went to the Senate, that I am not angry with them. Tell them the reason why am not angry with them. Why I am not angry with them is because God used them to fight me, so I would leave the PDP and today, I can be the Governorship candidate of the APC.
