CRS YPP Dissociates From The Alleged Endorsement Of Dr. Steve Odey For CRN By-election

By Admin


The attention of Young Progressives Party (YPP) Cross River State Chapter has been drawn to the purported endorsement of Dr Stephen Odey, the PDP Candidate for the 5th December, 2020 Cross River North Senatorial District by-election by our party’s candidate, Dr. Francis Agaba.

Ordinarily, we would have ignored it as another ploy to distract the party that has since positioned itself as the major opposition political platform in Cross River State but the danger this information portends may be damaging to the image of the party, hence the need for this rebuttal.

Expectedly, this unfortunate incident was hurriedly reported by a media happy aide of the PDP. As a party, we hereby state as follows;

That we totally dissociate ourselves from the alleged endorsement as it does not reflect the decision of the party.

That the party has immediately commenced investigation into the reason behind the presence of our candidate in the meeting of the PDP campaign organisation.

The party equally condemns in very strong terms the desperation of PDP to leverage on the rising profile of our great party without due process.

That the party has no plans whatsoever either now or in the foreseeable future to align or form any coalition with any political party.

Although, our candidate has explained his side of the story, we are currently studying the situation and will soon communicate appropriate sanctions in line with the constitution of the party. Our party will not tolerate any form of anti party activities from any member.

Thank you!
