Group flays call for Enoh’s suspension
Social political group in Cross River State, Bridge Movement, has accused supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Senator Bassey Otu, of mischief and ignorance of how democracy works.
It also flayed calls for Senator John Owan Enoh suspension.
Bridge Movement spoke in reaction to newspaper and social media publications sponsored by another group, Back to South Advocacy, accusing Senator John Owan Enoh of being desperate to become the next governor of the state.
The group alleged that Otu’s supporters based their allegation on the fact that Enoh was wrong to have taken the party to court.
The leader of Bridge Movement, Don Courageo, made the position of the group known in a statement issued in Calabar, describing Back to South Advocacy’s allegations as baseless.

The statement reads: “Distinguished Senator John Owan Enoh is in no way desperate to govern Cross River State.”
Rather, he is passionate about adding value to governance by building on the good works of his predecessors.
“Those people casting aspersions on the person of Enoh are either being mischievous or ignorant of the workings of governance, the rule of law and democratic norms.
“Is desperation for power enough reason for someone to leave his comfort zone and put his head on the line? The obvious response is NO! It is only someone with deep love for his people, a
sincere conviction of his intentions and competence to deliver that would do that.
The group called on those asking for Owan Enoh’s suspension to retrace their steps and allow the judiciary to do its work.
“We enjoin all members of our great party to join in the onerous task of consolidation, irrespective of who wins at the court. All party faithful should put all hands on deck and not allow the state to fall into the hands of the opposition, which is bent on mortgaging it to foreign partners,” the group warned.
