The group known as “Back To South Alliance” in Cross River has demanded the immediate suspension of Senator John Owan Enoh from the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) by the his ward executives because of the ongoing suit against the party’s gubernatorial candidate Sen. Bassey Otu.
The call became necessary following “our investigations, that Sen. John Owan Enoh is not driven by vaulting ambition that over leaps itself but dancing to the drumbeats of opposition to put a stud in our party and that should be checked” said the Convener.
Addressing newsmen in Calabar, the Convener, Amb. Awatt Caleb Ekpenyong, said “the party leadership at the national and in other states have paraded classical template of obedience and loyalty as pillars of progress in partisan democracy on zoning of the governorship to the South we stand”.
He recalled that the likes of the vice president, the Senate President and others have since thrown in the towel in good faith after the primaries of the party by complying with the party’s decision and the incontrovertible truth that power ultimately comes from God and He gives it to whom He likes”.
“Therefore, since Owan Enoh is orchestrated to destroy the success of our party and therefore the leadership of our party should wield the big stick on him”.
The group also called on the Presidential candidate of the party, His Excellency Sen.Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to note the destabilizing actions of Senator John Owan Enoh, and give him the appropriate sanctions his actions deserves by removing him from the presidential campaign council”.
The group commended its counterparts in Central and Northern senatorial district for believing and keeping faith with the Back To South Agenda, adding “we in the South promise to replicate same gesture when it is your turn. On back to South, we stand”.
Also expressing his views, Prof. Eyo Etim Nyong, one time governorship candidate in Cross River State, said “I stand on Back To South Agenda. I believe in justice and equity”.
“I believe in the rotation of power. It is very relevant in political equation, he noted”.
“Power he said belongs to God and at the end the truth will emerge”.
In his remarks, Chief Ifere Paul, from the Central senatorial district said that he believes in”Back To South Agenda. My entire household supports this noble agenda. It is the right path to follow now.
