Stakeholders back ex-commissioner for governor
The elders, concerned Bekwarra youths and other stakeholders in Bekwarra community have endorsed Cross River State Commissioner for Works, Mr. Legor Idagbor, for governor, ahead of the 2015 general elections.
Declaring their support for his aspiration at Abuochiche, the headquarters of Bekwarra Local Government, they said their endorsement was based on his antecedents and track records as two-time chairman of Bekwarra Local Government from 2007 to 2011.
Speaking on behalf of the elders and stakeholders, Mr. Linus Etalong Adie, a lawyer, said: “Having carefully watched his performance in office and his developmental strides and innovations as the chairman of Bekwarra Local Government from 2007 to 2011, from where he was made the Commissioner for Works by Governor Liyel Imoke, we have no doubt that he is the right and best material for the governorship.”
He went on: “As a grassroots politician and son of the late judge of the state, Justice Ochikiri Idagbor, he will bring about equity, justice and fairness in the conduct of the affairs of the state. That he was made Commissioner for Works by Governor Imoke speaks of the confidence the governor has in him.”
