Obono-Obla had alleged an attempt to “foist” a predetermined candidate on Cross River North Senatorial District.

Nabena noted that the APC is moving in a new and progressive direction whereby things are done properly and internal democracy is the norm.

“The party will continue to give all aspirants a level playing field while also ensuring that only those with impeccable records and are popularly elected are presented as APC candidates in all elections”, he added.
