Sources within the Cross River State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are sounding a note of caution that state governor, Liyel Imoke must be wary of his political advisers who have helped him negotiate all the wrong turns in the build-up to next year’s gubernatorial polls. Specifically they say those policies that have attempted to stifle the political process, discouraging interested Cross Riverians from running for the office of governor, waiting instead to be “anointed” to run for the office, may not give CRS the kind of leadership that will stand her out.
While making a contribution, one of the sources told www.calitown.com that “it is Imoke that I feel for because when he leaves office and most of these people find out that it is no longer business as usual, as they struggle to belong, they will say all sorts of things about Imoke, especially the bad things, attempt to demonise him, just so they can remain where they can feed. We have seen it happen before and while Imoke may be encouraging it to happen again, we hope he will be able to cope with the negative things these people will say about him when he leaves office”.
Another source was unhappy that “our politically docile people interested in being governor are too afraid to even put out billboards or posters. If you travel around the country now, posters and billboards are everywhere but immediately you enter Cross River, nothing is visible, instead those who say they want to be governor are squatting and waiting to be told to consult or campaign, it is laughable. If we must take this state to the next level, we cannot wait to be appointed to run as governor, our convictions must take us through the process and not wait to be prodded on by Imoke”.
Gov. Imoke on his part has come out recently, insisting that he will not throw his weight behind any candidate and that those interested in running for governor must commune with the people of CRS who he believes hold the key to Peregrino House.
