Senator Bassey Otu has hailed his victory in the Cross River governorship election, describing it as victory of brotherhood over forces of darkness.
He declared that the victory is not only for his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, but for all.

He stated this in his acceptance speech delivered yesterday night in Calabar, emphasising that it is not a winner-takes-all.
It’s not the victory of one political interest over another or the victory of one cultural zone over others, but the victory of our brotherhood over the dark forces that seek to polarize us into camps. It is the victory of our humanity over poisonous rhetoric,” he said.
He remarked that the people have demonstrated that the ties that bind them were stronger than the artificial gulfs political parties tried to create.
Otu reaffirmed his readiness to work night and day to justify the confidence reposed in him.
“I reach out a hand of fellowship to my brothers who ran for this position against me from other political parties. I urge you all to join hands with me, let us build a new Cross River State. This state belongs to only one party- and that is the people of Cross River State. We share the same obligation to work for its welfare and progress,” he said.
