The campaign organization of Honourable Dodeye Arikpo, Dodeye Arikpo Senate Campaign Organization, DASCO, has okeyed the second term bid of the incumbent governor of Cross River State, Senator Benedict Ayade.
As Ayade prepares for the party’s guber primaries on Friday, Dodeye Arikpo and his team has vowed to render whatever support necessary to enhance the sitting governor’s victory.
The leading Senate Aspirant, DA, as he is fondly called told Cross River Daily that he would lend the massive support he currently enjoys from the delegates of the six local government areas of the Central Senatorial District to the governor.
“With due respect to other Guber Contenders in Our Great Party, PDP, His Excellency, Sen. Prof. Benedict Ayade has to be allowed to finish his tenure, as we cannot seem to judge his performances only on the basis of one term, because he has lofty drives on industrializing the state and making our economy virile. This is the justification behind my several reasons why I have long decided to turn in my support for him,” Dodeye Arikpo said.
Apart from the endorsement of Arikpo by the three Chapters Chairmen and Executives of the Old Obubra Bloc of Central, fleets of other Support Groups, Formula 6, Central Grassroot Political Network, Ikom Ambassadors, Etung Grassroot Political Movement for Arikpo, ABI Fronts For Arikpo, and others from Central have made public their resolve to stand by Dodeye Arikpo in support of Ayade.
Arikpo also said that he does not subscribe to the idea of politicians from other zones of the State struggling the Pellegrino House with Ayade who is from the North, as it has become a common political culture that whoever enters the house, takes two turns.
Just as it is traditional of the Gubernatorial Matters in the recent Cross River, the Director General of Friends of Dodeye Arikpo, DG. FODA, the frontline DA’s Support base, Hon. Elemi Alaga, in his unalloyed support for his Principal, DA, has said Sen. Ayade has come with an industrialized administrative style, to complement past tourism, rural and urban developmental administrative patterns of leadership by Duke and Imoke. So he is sure that the next four years with the Digital Governor will be for actualization of the Ayadeism Concept, as no other person will do better than the man currently in the Government House.
Elemi went on to spot that Ayadeism is synonymous with bringing and supporting Youth Leaders to power, hence, he is convinced that God had laid it in the heart of the young governor to support a young aspirant from the Old Obubra Bloc in the person of Arikpo to become our next Senator so they can best understand the language of the younger expectant Crossriverians from Central, North and South.
In another development, the DGs of Formula 6 and Omega 5, Architect Nkaranse and Engr Sunny Skippo, respectively laud Governor Ayade’s giant strides and youthful inclusiveness in his administrative style. They further expressed how they will stop at nothing to mobilize support for the return of the Digital Conceptualizer, in addition to the the work they have been doing to see Arikpo in the Red Chamber come 2019.
To this end, the Leadership and large grassroot base followership of Dodeye Arikpo Senatorial Campaign Organization, DASCO, vowed to use all voting arsenals within their reach to work for, support and vote Ayade come Friday 28th of September, 2018.
