‘Imoke ‘ll not impose anybody on Cross River’
A socio-political group, the Grassroots Solidarity Movement (GSM), has said contrary to speculations, Governor Liyel Imoke would not impose anybody as governor on Cross River State.
The body, supporting Goddy Jedy-Agba as the next governor, said the state needs somebody who has the desire to lead and not someone waiting to be anointed.
Spokesman for the group, Elder Wilson Ajogbor, after a meeting at the weekend in Calabar, said Imoke being a democrat would not want to be associated with imposition.
Ajogbor, a lawyer, said of Jedy-Agba: “He is a man who has offered himself to continue the good work of Governor Imoke. While other politicians are waiting to be handpicked, Jedy-Agba has said he has what it takes to take over.
“In other states, people are making things to happen. But here, nothing is happening because people are afraid. Cross River State indigenes have moved beyond being spineless. We are grateful to the governor because he has not antagonised anybody for showing interest in the governorship.”
