READ: Chris Agara Discusses 2019 Political Ambition

Mr. Chris Agara 
Chris Agara, a stalwart of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP,  in Cross River State  says  he would make a pronouncement on his political action at the appropriate time.

Mr Agara who stated this while speaking with journalists in Calabar with regards to speculations that he intends to contest for the Senate in the central Senatorial District stated that it is premature to say if he  would throw his hat into the ring or not.

He  identified greed as the cause some politicians in Nigeria refuse to relinquish power after they have served their mandate by going ahead to contest for another position without allowing others the chance to serve their people.

“It is common to see a person serve as governor for two terms and after that he goes ahead to contest for the Senate even when the electorates no longer want him, he manipulates the electoral process and gets himself back to power and that is clear sign of greed”, he said.

He said  devolution of power is not only in decentralising power from  the central  government to the federating units but also among the politicians  who should give up power after they have served their term  because doing otherwise is imposing themselves on the people.

According to him,  "the political process in Nigeria has evolved to become more functional  with majority of the people becoming politically  conscious  and know those who are serving their interests and those who are serving their personal interest and  in 2019 those who are clinging unto power for self interest  would be voted out by the people".

Agara who is a political associate of the Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade commended the governor for  his effort in providing jobs through political appointments which he said has ripple effect on the economy of the state.

“I am not just impressed but extremely  impressed with the efforts of Governor  Ayade  in infrastructural development and job creation under the prevailing circumstances because he inherited  a lot of debts and the paucity of funds available to the state, compared to his predecessors, he has done very well”.
