Post a Comment

  1. This is great news to read. Someone commented that APC is synonymous with confusion and I am making bold to say that assertion is totally wrong. I wish to congratulate Dr Achigbe and his enviable team. He is a round peg in a round hole. Dr Achigbe is a seasoned Administrator that has been through it all. A sincere gentleman who will call black black and white white. With the new team under the leadership of Dr Achigbe, APC will experience a new dawn in the State.
    Like I said before now, my support will be for a team that supports a governorship candidate from North Senatorial District. Sometimes, slaves exercise their rights when the elastic point is exceeded. We have slaved for too long in Cross River State. Congratulations to APC and more grease to all your joints.
