The All progressive Congress (APC), Biase Local Government chapter of Cross River State had on Tuesday, 21st August 2018 conducted the tarried & overdue Congress in Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State at Government Secondary School, Ehom, Biase.
The Congress which saw the emergence of Mr Edodi Edodi Eyong (Eddyson) as the new chapter chairman of the party having been re-elected was conducted following the decision of the National working committee of APC on the annulment of the state Congress in Cross River State which led to the constitution of two parallel executives.
Recalled that The All Progressive Congress Nationwide had held her Congresses on May 2018 where her ward, local governments, States, zonal and national executives was constituted but incidentally, that of Cross River State was not valid and some local governments in Cross River State like Biase, Akamkpa & Yala couldn’t conduct theirs. Some resorted to violence, while others record irregularities & Pandemonium’s.
The successful Congress which was well anticipated by ward executives, delegates, observers, INEC and security agencies was seen to be free, fair, transparent & democratic as the party delegates expressed their will by choosing Eddyson to consolidate on the mandate which was given him.
Sufficed to recalled here, the APC Biase had previously had an illegal executives who parade themselves as the authentic executives, a scenario where some hoodlums & miscreants who thinks that politics & party positions must be achieved with illegalities. It’s no thing of doubt that achieving this feat by Edodi Edodi is something to cheer about considering the precarious and impossibility of attaining executives and the party in Biase participating in the 2019 general elections as speculated by rumours mongers
In his remark, Mr Edodi Edodi thanked party men, stakeholders, faithfuls & leaders who stood their ground to ensure a democratic process in APC Biase and salvage it from the hands of political saboteurs who wish to ruin the party but unfortunately for them, Biase APC is united against sentiments. He maintained that, Power comes from God and those who seek party positions must learn to imbibe and respect the party guidelines & constituted laws even as he promised to deliver the dividends of politics to party faithfuls & well meaning citizens. He enjoined party members to be resolute & dogged in their dealings and not be perturbed by the waves of defections heating the party at the national even as he assured them of victory come 2019 elections.
He promise to midwife a change that is most desired by the people, to rejuvenate & consolidate the gains of the party.
He further commended the National leadership of APC who saw it wise and deemed it necessary to panacea the dilemma and Pandemonium’s of illegality in the Party.
He promise an inclusive leadership where even the prodigal children will be carried along for the purpose of winning elections.
