I want to be Governor not deputy, APC Guber Aspirant, Adah insist

APC Governorship aspirant, Rt. Hon. Paul Adah

Former member of the House of Representatives and All Progressives Congress Governorship Aspirant, Rt. Hon. Paul Adah Wednesday reiterated his earlier ambition to become governor of the state stating that he has never shifted grounds on the ambition as speculated.

Speaking on the sideline of speculations that he has dropped the governorship ambition in the 2019 polls with a preference for Deputy Governor, Adah who was the Commissioner representing Cross River in the Board of the  Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) said his insistence in running for governor is founded on 'a rescue mission", which implies taking Cross River out the woods.

Adah described Cross River under the Sen. Ben Ayade led Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) government as witnessing retrogression.

The governorship hopeful who was addressing party stakeholders from the Southern Senatorial District of the state, maintained that he has also not contemplated a second term in office stating that he was guided by the principle of justice,equity and fairness in power rotation among the three senatorial districts of the state.

He maintained that the rotation of the seat of governor was founded on the need to justify and affirm the principle of justice,equity and fairness and emphasised the need for the APC to insist on this principle in the choice of its governorship candidate in the 2019 polls.

According to him,the issue of which senatorial district should produce the next governor under the APC should not obliterate the fact that the northern senatorial district is very much on ground to complete their 8 year tenure like others.

He explained that the northern senatorial district will be shortchanged if the idea of rotation deviates from the path of justice,equity and fairness which gives it to the north.

He described the Ayade's administration as a woeful failure saying that nobody would like to be associated with the mis- governance of the state under the PDP administration of  Ayade.

"Success, they say has many friends and failure is understandably an orphan. For Ayade, nobody would like to be associated with him because he has failed woefully in his leadership of the state".

"In Obudu where he comes from, for instance, he has seized so many peoples properties and destroyed some in the guise of constructing roads without recourse to compensation to the affected people. Even the primary school he attended, he has destroyed".

Adah said it is for this reason and others he is gunning for governor so to rescue Cross River from the shackles of retrogression which Ayade has plunged it.

He maintained that the project was a doable one that all and sundry must key into adding that he has vast experience in the public service and has served in at least 10 local government areas of the state as an added advantage to accentuate his ambition.

"I understand the problems of the state and can address them accordingly,"he said.
