An aide to the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Cross River State, has cleared the air over the controversy generated by a fake withdrawal notice purportedly by Sen. Prince Bassey Otu.
Barr. Ekpenyong Akiba in a message sent to our newsroom in response to whether his boss has withdrawn from the gubernatorial race replied this;
NOTICE OF CLARIFICATION
The letter of withdrawal is a mandatory form accompanied with the nomination and interest form for all APC aspirants. This is in light of the proposed consensus arrangement in fulfilment of the Electoral Act as amended.
All Aspirants from President to State House of Assembly filled and submitted the mandatory withdrawal form alongside the nomination and interest form. It is therefore shocking that mischevious social media agents of Sen. Owan Enoh decided to make it viral to imply that Sen. Bassey Otu has withdrawn from the Guber race as a consequence of their baseless litigation.
Note that sen.John owan had in a letter dated 19th of May, 2022 withdrew formally supporting the Party consensus candidacy of Sen.(Prince) Bassey Otu.
This is just to set the records straight also counter the gullibility of the undiscerning minds.
