From Francis Ogar, Calabar
The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) Cross River State chapter has disassociated itself from a purported adoption of the governorship candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC) Sen John Owan Enoh by some eight (8) political parties out of thirty-two (32) political parties in the state.
CNPP Chairman, Sunday Michael, disclosed this on Monday at a press conference in Calabar.
He said “indeed, we are flummoxed and aghast beyond comprehension as to why a politician in the class of Sen. John Owan Enoh will be so gullible and or perhaps out of desperation to govern the State be so deceived by inconsequential political scavengers, impersonators and desperados.
“Ordinarily, we will not have dissipated our energy and precious time to respond to a meaningless adoption, however, we have to set the records straight so as not to misinform treasured and adorable good people of Cross River State into believing that the rest of us sitting here with you are on same page with the crop of hustlers behind the so called adoption.”
He further said the said adoption, was nothing but a scam, with all the ingredients of fraud spiced around it, adding that it was attended by 12 political parties and not 15 as claimed.
“Of the 12 parties, six were impersonators and impostors. That is to say only 6 out of 12 parties were in attendance,” he added.
The CNPP Chairman also said that the chairman of the misrepresented parties were at the press conference to refute all such claims, adding that there was no basis for Enoh’s adoption as a consensus candidate when Enoh and Usani Usani were laying claim to the same ticket.
Sunday further disclosed that the chairmen of the eight governorship candidates did not authorise them and had since denied their involvement in the adoption.
