2023 Polls: Group Backs Sandy Onor’s Aspirations for Governor

*** Declares His Emergence Will Bring Back The Glory Days Of Cross River State.

Sen. Sandy Onor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who is running for governor in the Cross Rivers State elections in 2023, has the support of the Concerned Group for Justice & Democracy (CONJAD), a pressure group that promotes democratic values and effective government.

The statement was made during a news conference on Tuesday in Abuja by the group’s Director-General, Mr. Emmanuel Eyaba.

Eyaba, a native of Cross River State, claims that CONJAD’s position on Onor is in the “overall best interest of Cross River State” despite being non-partisan in its support for competent leadership at all levels.

“At this juncture in the leadership trajectory of our dear state, we need to look beyond party interests and sentiments, and settle for someone with the necessary competency and character to lift Cross River from its current quagmire.

“Having carefully x-rayed all the governorship candidates of the various political parties, we are of a strong conviction that with the emergence of Sandy Onor as governor,Cross Rivers State will be restored to its glory days.

“We are not politicians, CONJAD is made up of professionals from cross Nigeria, including Cross River state ,who are resident in the Federal Capital Territory(FCT), that seek better Governance and Democracy in Nigeria.

“As advocates of good leadership, part of our goal is to support anyone that can deliver the dividends of democracy, drive the economy and lift people from hunger, especially at the grass root.

“This is not about the sentiment of my party or not my party, but about the individual with the pedigree to deliver on basic infrastructure and job creation, especially for our teeming youths and secure the future of cross river people, and the time is now.

Eyaba added that ,“Don’t forget that Sandy Onor is senator representing the Central District of Cross River State and he has made massive impact on his people, especially through the provision of relevant infrastructure , including road intervention projects, community civic centers/town halls interventions as well as Education/school intervention project.

Other Executives of CONJAD who led their voices to the call for Onor’s Governorship include Mrs Egor Kelly Odock, Head of Media , Agbor Ayuk, Director of Strategy and Annosong Bookish, Director of Communications.

Also speaking at the event, the group’s head of Contact and Mobilization, Pauline Jonathan Idemudia ,said the group was working assiduously to ensure that massive votes were delivered to Sen. Onor across the state come March 11.

She therefore called on “Cross Riverians” , especially youths and women to shun voting along party lines and vote for the individual with the requisite antecedence to rescue the state.

“We want to influence voters directly for Senator Sandy Onor because we are sure when he gets into government, things will be better for our people and we want our youths and women to understand this clearly,” she added.
