Bye-election : Hope rise as youths vow to deliver APC Candidate for Obudu assembly seat

The aspiration of Dr. Godwin Agbor, candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the December 5th bye-election for the Obudu state constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly was boosted on Monday as youths cutting across the three political wards in Utugwang endorsed him.

The youths, cutting across party divide had met at the popular St. Colman's Primary School, Nkerira to decide who to queue behind in the election and after much debate, settled for  Dr. Agbor of the APC.

Agbor, a private medical practitioner who has carried out so many intervention and charity projects in his local government emerged candidate of the APC unopposed in the September 3rd party's primary.

He has promised during his campaigns to focus on bills that would strengthen food security and agricultural development in rural communities in the constituency if elected.

The APC candidate has also pledged to work with other house members to formulate a robust industrialization policy drive that would in turn create jobs for members of his constituency and the stage at large.

"I will, when voted into the house, introduce and work for bills that will address the core values of our party manifesto. Such bills that addresses job creation and boost the wellbeing of our people, strengthen food security and agricultural development of our rural dwellers, formulate a robust industrialization policy drive especially the cocoa and agricultural products to go through value addition, addresses educational needs of our children, empowers our women, protects the right of the girl child and most importantly, addresses the health needs of our people", he said.

While speaking his plans for the youths, he said that they "will be given opportunity to harness their full potentials. There is also the need for the state to have a commission that will help resolve, mitigate and prevent conflicts within and outside her shores that tend to affect tourism which is now the mainstay of our economy". 

The Obudu assembly seat became vacant after the tragic passing away of the former occupant, Late Hon. Godwin Akwaji after brief illness in June. 

Agbor will be battling the wife of the deceased wife of the late assembly man who also emerged unopposed as candidate of the ruling Peoples' Democratic Party, PDP in the election.
