All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain, elder statesman and former governor of Cross River State, Clement Ebri, has expressed deep pain and sadness at the untimely death of Matthew Achigbe, state chairman of the party.
Ebri who spoke exclusively with www.calitown.com said the deceased “… was a gentleman to the core, a man of integrity and a great servant of God. He was selfless, always willing to serve humanity. He was a great asset to APC, a man we could always count upon to deliver under any circumstance. This is a staunch Catholic who never missed morning mass and lived his life without earthly complications. I am deeply pained by his death and I pray that God will be there for the family at this really difficult time.”
Meanwhile, the former governor has distanced himself from news making the rounds that he is angling to takeover from embattled APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomole. He insisted that rather than tow the path of strife and confusion, his commitment to support the national leadership of the party and the party itself is total. “Whatever the issues that may have arisen in the party, at my level, I should pursue peace that will help strengthen the party. Mr President has been magnanimously meeting the demands we make for CRS. If we do not support him, it will be unfair.”
He enjoined Cross Riverians to embrace peace and ensure that they participate fairly in the general elections by the corner, voting massively for the APC.
