By Elijah Ugani

A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, Prince KJ Jeddy-Agba has declared his intention to contest the Obudu/Bekwarra/Obanliku Federal Constituency Election comes 2023.

KJ Agba made the declaration on Saturday 15th January, 2022 at his hometown, Utugwang – Obudu Local Government Area of Cross River State, when he consulted his ward, Utugwang Central.

Declaring his intention, Mr KJ Jeddy-Agba noted that he understands the plight of the constituency in relation to the need of the 21st century representation.

His words “Our people are predominantly farmers, all we need to do to set priorities, engage relevant stakeholders with the view to provide support through legislation that will have direct impact on the citizenry in line with the demands of the 21st century.

“You cannot do a particular thing using same method over and over and you expect a different result.

“We have to as a matter of expediency change our approach and strategy if we must get it right. A time has come for us to collectively rise to the challenge of the moment with the view to provide alternative leadership to our people.

“Recall that in 2019, when the governor, Sen Prof Ben Ayade was still in our party, I had come and informed you of my intention to contest for this same office. I had done my consultations and was ready for the party primaries, only for the Governor to invite us for a meeting and read the Riot Act to us, and declared automatic ticket for all sitting House of Reps members.

“The leader of our party in Cross River Northern Senatorial District today, is Sen Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe. Unlike when you cannot predict the governor having some vested interest, the filed is opened for all those who are interested in serving in this capacity. I can assure that I have paid my dues in the party having served in different capacities and contributed to sustaining the party”

Responding, the ward Chairman of Utugwang Central, Mr Ajima Ewhe Odey commended Prince KJ Jeddy-Agba for the bold step to indicate interest to serve his people at the green chambers of the National Assembly.

He used the opportunity to pledge the support of the entire PDP family in Utugwang Central to the ambition of their leader, Prince KJ Jeddy-Agba. He charged other members to become ambassadors of the KJ Jeddy-Agba aspiration.

Prince KJ Jeddy-Agba is the son of the longest serving Monarch in West Africa and younger brother of the Minister of State for Power, Prince Gody Jeddy-Agba OFR. He was a member of the Cross River State PDP Caretaker Committee, after the defection of the governor to the All Progressive Congress APC last year that midwieved the current State Executive Committee of the party.

KJ Jeddy-Agba had contested election in 2010 for the position of the senate with Sen Ben Ayade and came third in that election. He also contested for the PDP ticket for House of Representatives with Hon Legor Idagbo as incumbent, where the incumbent was given automatic ticket.

KJ Jeddy-Agba believes that his political network span across the three Local Government Areas that makes up the constituency, and he is confident that he will get the party ticket in a free and fair primary election to face other candidates from other political parties in the general election.
