“We recognise the peculiarity of the 2019 elections and we will reach everyone as no one shall be taken for granted. If we can affect well over 2000 people with 358 getting federal jobs and another 1000 students were empowered, I know for sure that we will do more.
“What Cross River needs is an experienced legislature that can help the state align with the centre, I know that my counterpart has capacity but cannot give our dear state what it needs now.”
