Supporters of Sen. Prince Bassey Otu are ecstatic as the former national assembly lawmaker is set to declare his intention to run for the office of governor, to the state executive committee of the All Progressives Congress in Cross River State.
Sen Otu, a major contender for the office, had last weekend at his home town, Adiabo Okurikang in Odukpani LGA, expressed his desire to succeed governor Ben Ayade.
His desire to inform the state Exco of the party, is seen as a giant leap towards realizing what many see as the collective dream of most Cross Riverians.
Sen. Otu is very popular among Cross Riverians, with many seeing him as the biggest single opposition to the PDP.
The event which is billed to take place by 10am at the APC state secretariate, will witness large turnout of prominent party supports and admirers of the distinguished senator.
There is also an expected vehicular and human traffic along the Murtala Mohamed highway, as supporters of the former lawmaker cuts across political party, religious and ethnic lines.
