I will appreciate Owan for the car Ayade gave me by canvassing for him - Boki Paramount Ruler

Ukorebi Esien 

The Paramount Ruler of Boki Local Government Area has acknowledge the APC gubernatorial candidate, Sen John Owan Enoh for being instrumental to the car gifting he got from the incumbent governor of the state.

The Royal father who said he was grateful for the gift by his excellency Sen Prof Ben Ayade noted that the gift which came in after three and a half years of the governor's leadership was only possible because the governor had a strong opponent in the forthcoming general elections, in person of Sen Owan, as such the gift was politically motivated. 

He therefore, said in appreciation to the APC gubernatorial candidate, senator John Owan, he will ensure he works on the people of Boki to see Owan becomes victorious at the polls come March 2nd 2019.

"I reserved my thank you, because a mere thank you may not mean anything, the best thank you I have for you is to vote you into office as the governor of this state. It was not difficult for me to tell you thank you, My job is to influence the Boki people, to call the Boki people together to vote his excellency to power come the 2019 election.

And if you get into office, among several other things we are demanding for in Boki is the road network in our Local Government Area. I want to assure you that you are already the governor of the state. To me, I think that's the best 'Thank You' I can give to you". He said. 

Earlier the Cross River State APC candidate had accused the Royal Father of being one of the few, Paramount Rulers who were yet to call to thank him for the car gifting he received from the incumbent governor of the state, Sen Prof Ben Ayade.

Explaining further, the gubernatorial hopeful noted that more than 15 Paramount Rulers have called to thank him for the cars they received from his excellency, noting that the governor had never held any meeting with the traditional leaders in the state talk more of caring about their welfare, only to wake up after three and half years of governance to distribute cars to Paramount Rulers.


While addressing the teeming crowd that waited to welcome him in Boki, Sen Owan Enoh said, 
In 2014/2015 Cross River State was the 11th state in the nation but after three and half years of governor Ben Ayade, Cross River State is now 36 out of 36 in the nation. 

His words "Everyday and everywhere we have gone to, the campaign gets bigger and bigger. everywhere we go to we find an evidence that the people of Cross River State don't want this present administration to continue". Owan said.  

"Increasingly people are realising that in 2015 we made a mistake, in 2015 we made a blunder, we gave power to someone who does not understand what powers is. We gave power to someone who is supposed to serve you and serve me, instead he uses that power to opress you and the state. 
On his own he has no hood idea. This governor does not think anything good for anybody". He concluded. 

All so speaking during the occasion, the DG of Coalition of Owan Friends of Political Parties and Groups, Pastor Okoi, who is also the governorship candidate of PPN said the group made up of 15 political parties saw the shameless lies of the incumbent governor and the suffering of the masses, as well as the good leadership qualities embedded in Sen. Enoh thus they had to reject Juicy offers and cash from Ayade and adopt Owan. 

He also noted with regrets that some sycophanistic elements in the name of Conference of Nigerian Politics Parties, CNPP having been paid by the governor have written some much lies about them, while emphasizing that the Coalition is very strong and intact. 

"When we saw how our people have gone through shameless lies, when we saw how people have been suffering, over 15 political parties after rejecting cash offers and appointment because we saw the greatness and the leadership qualities in our brother, sen. John Owan Enoh. We said no we will support the man who has love for the people, the man who understands the peoole.

"I want the press to video us very well, because some sycophants element, called CNPP and other groups Ayade's paid, went and wrote rubbish about us. This coalition is very strong and firm". He said. 

Throwing more lights, the words of Owan, the APC gubernatorial candidate said, "I praise their love and courage for CRS because they didn't think how much governor Ben Ayade was going to pay them. Ayade is a shame to Cross River".
