Re: DG Gershom Bassey Campaign Organization Reacts To Sandy Onor’s Declaration


The Attention of the Caterpillar Movement has been drawn to a publication allegedly credited to the DG of Gershom Bassey Campaign Organization, Barr. Ekpo Ada, wherein he stated, amongst other things that the declaration of Distinguished Senator (Prof) Sandy Onor, to join the gubernatorial race spells doom for the party. Referencing an imaginary Stakeholders meeting held in 2015, Barr. Ekpo Ada further alleged that the party leadership had in 2015, zoned the Governorship seat exclusively to the Southern Senatorial District.

For us in the Caterpillar Movement, we find the above statement credited to Barr. Ekpo Ada as unbecoming. Aware of the political season and time we are in, and the need to constantly disabuse the minds of our people from sheer propaganda and rumor, we find it absolutely pertinent to make the following categorical statements, in response to the alleged comment credited to Barr. Ekpo Ada.

1. That the Caterpillar Movement is not antagonistic to the aspiration of anybody as we believe that all Senatorial Districts have what it takes to produce a credible Governor.

2. That no body can zone the right of a people to willingly elect their leaders and as such, no body can coerce the party into disenfranchising party faithfuls. The Party must be seen to be free, fair and credible to all and sundry in their activities and processes as we match towards 2023

3. That it is an aberration for anybody to allege that the party exclusively zoned the Governorship seat to the South in 2015, as such is only a figment of some persons’ imagination, hell-bent on deceiving innocent and unsuspecting Cross Riverians.

We wish to reiterate our commitment to the people of Cross River State and to the philosophy of fairness, credibility and justice as nobody can zone our right.
