Ahead of 2015 election ,Nollywood Star Ejike Asigbu leads political rally in ABI Local Government Area in Cross River State in support for Hon. (Dr.) Alex Egbona .
Alex Egbona , who ex-Chief of Staff to the incumbent Governor Senator (Dr.) Liyel Imoke’s declared his intention to run for the Federal House of Representative of Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency to his Constituents.
Dr. Egbona, who had already presented himself to his Yakurr political cum-Federal Constituency family, visited the Bahomono and Igbo Imabana and then crowned the rally with a visited to Itigidi, Adadama and Ekureku his country home.
Interestingly, his rally in Ediba of the Bahomono axis was not without a glitch allegedly sponsored by his opponents in the same political party (PDP). Thus, pointing to some eminent danger ahead if a quick reconciliation is not done in the party caucus.
Eye witness account has it that his followers were attacked in Ediba and his rally vehicles vandalised. Meanwhile, several questions and side talks have been trailing the Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency seat within and outside the political circle.
While some have questioned the rationale behind the return of the incumbent, Right Honourable Bassey Eko Ewa to the exhorted seat for a third term given the fact that the Yakurrs have been occupying the seat since 1999. And those who snoop along the corridors of powers are alleging that the Governor, Senator Imoke is against the exit of his number five man in Government for an elected office. A development some analysts have tagged as both selfish and overbearing influence from the Governor.
Given the political rights of every aspirant, some have also said that Rt. Honourable Bassey Ewa is not wrong in his third term bid. But the political permutations seem to favour the former Chief of Staff to the Dr. Egbona whom right from the day he picked his Data form attracted an unprecedented crowed of supporters and followers in the history of the State’s politics.
Nollywood Star, Ejike Asigbu described his friend of over 40 years, who doubles as the grand patron of Nollywood actors as a man of his word, kind hearted, supportive and an advocate of the masses. Asigbu also unveiled Dr. Egbona’s plan of sponsoring his constituents into Nollywood….
Furthermore, the astute politician assured the people of Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency of exemplary leadership, true dividend and empowerment. He has also promised the crisis ridden people of Adadama community in Abi LGA, Cross River State of the restoration of peace and the resolution of their over one year clash with the Amagus in Ikwo of Ebonyi State.
In attendance at the rally were Pastor Sam Ele Asebe (National Youth Leader, Jonathan Campaign Organization) and his wife, Ejike Asigbu (Nollywood Actor), Rt. (Hon.) Isaac Igri (former Abi State Constituency – CRHA), Hon. Chucks Agube (former Chairman of Abi LGA), Hon.
