The seat for the member representing Ogoja/Yala Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives has been vacant since Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe was elevated to the 9th Assembly.
Many Cross Riverians had indicated an interest in the position but two candidates had been on the top list. The candidates are Hon. Mike Usibe (Former Chairman of Yala LGA and also former Commissioner for New Cities Development) and Barr. Godwin Offiono under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Hon Mike Usibe
Over the years Usibe has distinguished himself from others by empowering the youths. He has supported several women in the agricultural sector and has sponsored lots of youths through Education.
Hon Mike Usibe is a purpose-driven leader who is ready to rescue his people by providing more employment, projects, building infrastructure, and rendering services to them.
Barr. Godwin Offiono
Godwin Offiono is another vibrant leader that has impacted many lives in the northern part of Cross River. Many believe that he would be the rightful replacement for Jarigbe.
Meanwhile, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has not thrown their weight on any candidate, they are having several meetings and putting their house together, to select a more competent and people-oriented candidate that will give the party victory at the bye-election.
