A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Victor Ndoma-Egba, believs strongly that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu would win in Cross River State like the late acclaimed winner of June 12, 1993, Presidential election, Chief Moshood Abiola, won in the state.
Sen. Ndoma-Egba is Secretary, Campaign Planning Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PPC).
The former Senate Leader and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) spoke, on Tuesday, at the town hall meeting, in Calabar, the state capital.
The gathering was attended by Asiwaju Tinubu, his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, and other APC stalwarts.

Sen. Ndoma-Egba said Cross River people would vote for Tinubu as they did for the late Chief Abiola, who won the 1993 presidential election.
He recalled Tinubu visited Cross River with MKO before the poll, and though the state was NRC (National Republican Convention), “you were received like a brother and a friend.”
“After that visit, for the presidential election, Cross River voted SDP (Social Democratic Party) because of your visit.
“Today you are here to canvass votes for yourself. If we did it for another person on your recommendation, we will do it for you too this time around.”
The former Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Chairman thanked Tinubu for using the parley to settle party members who had differences.
