Let me use this opportunity on behalf of my wife and I, to extend our profound appreciation and immense gratitude to you, our teeming supporters across the state for your unflinching support during the just concluded Governorship Election. Although the result of the election was not the outcome we all hoped for, we are indeed very proud of your resilience and remain eternally grateful. We found in you dependable allies and brave warriors who worked so hard with us to launch Cross River State on a path of peace and prosperity. Although we fell short of our expectations, with your continued support, tomorrow belongs to us.

In the run up to this election, we were bound together by the will and shared vision that now is the time for our state to chart a new course, to make life better and more meaningful for our people. In spite of the distractions of a contrived crisis regarding my candidacy, we campaigned in all the Local Government Areas of the State with a message of hope. We unfolded a bold vision for a better and prosperous future

We are very pained by the senseless and avoidable loss of human lives in the course of the election. It is very sad that these men paid the supreme price in fulfillment of their democratic franchise in the hands of agents of darkness. This is not who we are as a people and we call on the purveyors of violence and death to have a rethink and stop further waste of human lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the departed and we encourage you in your moments of reflection, to spare a thought and prayers for the repose of their noble souls.

Finally, let us be clear: in spite of the outcome of this election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), our dream of a better Cross River State remains sacrosanct. 

Once again, we thank you very much for your support. We want you to know that we will never take your support for granted.

God bless Cross River State.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Senator John Owan Enoh
