The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, must be relaxation assured they’re in very secure fingers within the Central Senatorial District with Hon Friday Gabriel Okpechi as Cross River House of Assembly Speaker, 9Th Assembly. In about two months time, the ninth Assembly shall be inaugurated and intense politicking is already underway concerning who leads the State Legislature.
The PDP state working committee is anticipated to reconfirm any second from now which Local Government Area will get which place however whereas the wait is on, there isn’t any doubt the Obubra Local Government Council deserves to supply the following CRHA Speaker — and there’s no doubt Hon FG Okpechi, the one Assembly Member-Elect with unbeatable capability confirmed up to now, stands out from the area.
Ordinarily, with the composition of positions within the govt and judiciary, it ought to have been the only real unarguable proper of the Obubra LGA to supply the following Speaker to steadiness the ability equation. Honestly, Obubra Local Government Area is the one LGA that’s clearly neglected of the scheme of issues each throughout the social gathering and on the state degree, therefore, the appeal for the Speakership of the ninth Assembly . Therefore, for anybody to say Obubra shouldn’t be permit to style the place of speaker for no matter cause must be seen as our worst good friend. Since all of the LGAs in Central Senatorial District had all taken prime appointments, for fairness to prevail, speakership must be Zone to Obubra. Anything in need of that might be thought to be hatred, gang up and wickedness in opposition to Obubra, particularly after Abi, Yakurr, Boki, Etung, Ikom have all had their share and has been favoured to held prime political appointments, whereas the North have the Governor, South have the Deputy Governor and the Deputy Speaker respectively.
There has additionally been lengthy cries of marginalisation which the Obubra LGA has continued to lament up to now year.
On social gathering degree, Okpechi has confirmed to be a real consultant of the PDP within the LGA and has continued to boost the social gathering’s flag excessive regardless of the opposition from opponents. Even when his brother, Hon Elocate Okora moved to APC, all people felt the reign of PDP in Obubra is over, however Hon Friday Gabriel Okpechi, been a celebration devoted by no means noticed it as a problem, however reasonably moved forward along with his supporters, the PDP even turned extra stronger and highly effective. In the final election, Obubra delivered PDP in all of the seats, Obubra gave Ayade and all of the PDP candidates unimaginable votes.
Perhaps, the obvious cause why Okpechi must be supported in his ambition as primary most certified candidate to steer the ninth speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly is his unalloyed loyalty and help for the social gathering. Through thick and skinny,the philanthropist has stood by the social gathering and Governor Ben Ayade.
Okpechi performed a significant position within the Governor Ben Ayade’s re-election. As a member within the Ayade’s marketing campaign group, Hon FG Okpechi took the pains of embarking on an aggressive marketing campaign along with his group throughout which he introduced a formidable case on why Ayade is the suitable man to take Cross River State to the place it’s imagined to be.
So what greatest method is there to reward a loyal social gathering man who has stood out in opposition to all odds, sponsored and supported many actions for the success of the social gathering?
Indeed, it’s clear to even the blind that there may be no higher candidate for the place of Speaker than Okpechi who, as a result of he stands for the reality and his people, has been known as all kinds of names by his traducers and opponents all to color him black — however they by no means succeeded.
