A top PDP source in Cross River state in the wee hours of Friday, called to inform www.calitown.com that “those who are assuring the state Commissioner for Works, Legor Idagbo that he will become governor of this state are about to give him the kind of laughable assurance his kinsmen, Kanu Agabi and Walter Eneji got when they were fooled into believing that they will become governor of CRS at one time or the other”. The source is wondering “how Idagbo thinks his credentials which cannot match Agabi or Eneji’s can be sold to the electorate”.
When www.calitown.com pointed to the fact that the analogy put forward has an ethnic connotation and does not neccessarily follow, the source was quick to point out that, “Legor’s pedigree is his greatest drawback. So because he was Chairman of Bekwarra LGA, you people think that his stinct in Bekwarra has equipped him for the office of governor? This state is bigger than a boy who has benefitted from loopsided political patronage and it is delirious to imagine that this state will be led by someone with no credible leadership experience”.
Again, www.calitown.com cited the case of former Governor Donald Duke and how he was addressed as an outsider with no experience when he ran for governor. Hear the response; “…laughable. How can you people mention Donald’s name side by side with Legor’s. Donald’s exposure is way beyond and above what Legor parades and one of the things he doesn’t have is the articulate disposition of the likes of Donald”. The source went on to say that, “elections are not won on online platforms, yes what you people do can influence public opinion but how many of our party’s delegates read all the things you people post online? Legor can use you people but we are very convinced that one of the titles he will not add to his name is Governor of CRS”.
Confronted with the fact that the attack on Idagbo bore subversive marks and does cannot pass for a fair and thorough evaluation of the situation at hand, the source insisted that, “call it whatever you want to call it and even give it the kind of colouration that suits your purpose but get this assurance, the person who will become governor of CRS will, God willing, be someone who understands the dynamics of our economy and dire financial position, a person with the right kind of training and experience otherwise workers in this state will work for months and not earn a salary. That kind of leadership cannot be provided by Legor Idagbor”. He concluded by saying that, “I do not begrudge him and his ambition but I for sure know that this state deserves not a half yard, but a full one”.
