A poorly staged video by the defeated factional governorship candidate of the APC in Cross River State, Senator John Owan Eno, discrediting Prince Goddy Jeddy Agba, following the later’s nomination as minister by President Muhammadu Buhari, has gone viral.
It is understood that the video has been sent to President Buhari and the leadership of the APC, including the national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Owan Enoh, who is facing murder charges over gruesome killings in his Etung local government before and during the last governorship elections, is clearly unhappy that President Buhari overlooked him and nominated Agba instead for ministerial appointment.
So rather than be happy that his brother has been so nominated, the apparently traumatized and crestfallen Owan-Enoh, via his aide, Burke Okangbe, produced a video in which, he seeks to discredit Agba with a view to having the nomination of the former staff of the NNPC reversed by the President.
In the video, Okangbe, who worked with Owan-Enoh as a senior aide while in the Senate and a member of the media team of his campaign organisation, questioned the President’s decision to nominate Prince Agba.
She didn’t stop there. She poured invectives on the President and the APC for overlooking her principal.
Amongst other issues, she claims that Agba does not have a home. Really? That he was in far away Germany during the elections and as such, contributed little or nothing to Buhari’s victory.
Senator Owan Enoh’s destructive ambition has never done Cross River any good. Cross Riverians who are in the know of his inelegant politics are appalled by his latest antics.
Still fresh in the memories of the people is the Senator’s effort at dislocating the peaceful order in the state by contesting the 2019 gubernatorial election in utter negation of the rotational principle among the three senatorial zones in the state which favoured Cross River North to complete its eight year slot.
As if that was not enough atrocity, Pastor Usani Uguru Usani, a factional APC governorship candidate, who has been having running battle with Owan-Enoh, addressed a press conference in Abuja accusing Owan-Enoh of plotting to kidnap him and members of his family. All for politics.
Cross Riverians are therefore, telling Senator Owan that his wickedness towards Geddy Agba will fail.
