Labour Party candidate for Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency at the just concluded General Election.
It’s no longer news that the Presidential and National Assembly elections have come and gone and purported winners announced.
I sincerely want to express my very profound gratitude to the people of Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency for their supports and unalloyed love shown me, before, during and after the election.
Honestly, I couldn’t imagine the show of love by the good people of Ikom and Boki and really thank God for it. I also appreciate that you all did not tow the part of violence which is against my principles of politics and the Labour Party ideology.
On this note, I should specifically thank my parents, congratulate them for the virtues they’ve imparted on us to be our brothers keeper and love others as ourselves, which my siblings and I, have kept to this day, and God Almighty for His direction through grace and mercy.
The elections were marred with rigging, thuggery, intimidation, conspiracy and absolute disregard to the electoral laws and superintend by INEC officials that were bought over and the security agencies, this is quite unfortunate.
I should put on notice that the clear violation of the Electoral Laws to undermine the credibility of the election and our democracy, will be challenged in the Courts.
And I wouldn’t be deterred to continue on my humanitarian support to empower the less privileged and the down trodden of the society.
Once again, thank you the good people of Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency for your love and kindness; hence, tomorrow is greater than today, and be rest assured that, I’ll return your love, because love is love, only when repaid.
Accept the assurances of my highest regards.
OCHANG Alvin Ochang.
