He assured that which ever modality the party will adopt for the selection of its flag bearer, he will emerge victorious by God’s grace.

“I have a lot of bills to bring to the table for good governance which will take care of the youths, the women and the elders. If you liken our political sojourn to Catholicism, you will realize that I have done my baptism, I am only waiting for confirmation. Most of those who have indicated interest are preparing for baptism” Said Agbor.

Agbor maintained that he has capacity, qualifications and has impacted his people through community services and that the people are witnesses to his impact.

He advised Dr Agbor to avoid having issues with other aspirants, as they will support whoever the party chooses to fly the flag.

The Ward Chairman of Utugwang North, Mr Paul Akpanke thanked Dr Agbor for his boldness and advocated for primaries which will offer them the opportunity to participate in the process, as they will not have any role to play if the process is going to be by consensus.

In his vote of thanks, the Councilor representing Utugwang Central, Hon Emma Adinyang commended Dr Agbor and used the opportunity to call on the party to explore the direct or indirect mode of primaries as the use of consensus post potential danger to unity of the part.
