I Am Not Part Of Any Unconstitutional Arrangement - Sen. Gershom Bassey

Sen. Gershom Bassey

The foremost aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Cross River State gubernatorial election and  Senator representing Cross River Southern Senatorial District, Sen. Gershom Bassey has refuted claims that he was party to a shyster endorsement scheme perpetrated by H.E. Donald Duke.

In an interview with pressmen, Sen. Gershom agreed that following the misrepresentation from Donald Duke, a meeting was held and attendance was basically in deference to him as called upon by the former governor of Cross River State. However, when the convener changed the agenda of the meeting, Sen. Bassey said he staged a walkout of the meeting because being a lawmaker he didn't want to be a lawbreaker.

When asked about the attendees, Sen. Gershom Bassey said it was just an admixture of mostly community people, a few Etuboms and a couple of non-party men and women. He pointed out that the meeting does not have the constitutional right to convene with an agenda for consensus as that can only be done by the Caucus of the PDP. Hence, his departure from the meeting is in line with the law of necessity because he wouldn't want to be part of unconstitutional agenda.

Sen. Gershom Bassey charged his supporters not to be distracted but to focus on the weightier matter and gear their attention on the good work of service delivery towards the Party's primaries on the 23rd of May, 2022. He appealed for calm and said, "I don't think it's a serious issue ... we are continuing our efforts towards elections and we believe we are the foremost candidate by every single parameter. We are not taking anything for granted and we will work till the 23rd when I'm sure we shall come out with a victory in the PDP primaries."
