A frontline aspirant for Boki 1 State Constituency in the Cross River House of Assembly, Mr Obi Ayuk, has picked his interest/nomination form ahead of the 2019 election at the People’s Democratic Party Secretary in Calabar.
Ayuk, who hails from Buentsebe ward in Eastern Boki Clan of Constituency 1, was accompanied by hundreds of supporters at the PDP secretariat.
Speaking shortly after picking the form, Hon. Amos Kajang, the Director General of Obi Ayuk Campaign Organisation, told journalists that Ayuk has been ordained to give the people of Boki 1 an effective representation if elected into the assembly.
Kajang said that the time for the people of Boki 1 to witness a change in leadership and experience developmental projects through proactive representation was now.
“A little tip into Obi Ayuk’s life will tells us that Ayuk is a man who is spice to get what he want to get. In his private sector endeavour, he has excelled in his chosen career and the blessings of the Lord have been upon him.
“ Obi Ayuk is a household name as far as Boki 1 State Constituency is concerned. He is a man who has achieved so much in life. In his political sphere, he has made great impact. He is a political bulldozer in Boki 1.
“In the political sector, Obi Ayuk is not looking for money like others; he has made his money already through his genuine businesses.
“What Obi Ayuk is looking for is a platform to salvage his people. He want to bring the wealth of experience he has acquired in the private sector into the political sector to drive the process. Above all, Obi Ayuk is a democrat, a gentleman, philanthropy, a grassrooter and team player who want to carry his constituents along in the scheme of things’’, he said.
The DG explained that with the zoning of the slot to Eastern Boki clan by leaders of the party from the area, Obi Ayuk was the most qualified for the position.
He further said that Obi Ayuk has the backing of his people to represent them in the assembly because Buentsebe ward has never benefitted from the assembly slot.
“This is the time for Buentsebe ward. This is the time for Obi Ayuk and the entire Boki 1 should queue behind him for victory.
“My expectation at the primary will be wonderful. Obi Ayuk will emerge victorious with a landslide victory because all the delegates are aware that Obi Ayuk is a household name and he is the one the people have anointed’’, he said.
