The owner/sole proprietor of Arthur Jarvis University, the first private university in Cross River State, Sir Arthur Jarvis Archibong has declared his intentions to run for the Governor of Cross River State in 2023.
Arthur Jarvis who formally made the declaration at his ward in Effanga Offiong ward Secretariat at Mbanyok Ikot Effanga, Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross River state on Sunday, September 26, 2023, is a member and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said it has become imperative for the state to evolve and a breath of fresh air ushered in.
He appealed to his people not to sit on the fence while encouraging them to key into the second phase of the voter's registration exercise commencing on October 4.
This is what he said: "Surprisingly, some people have already concluded that the South is not fit or capable of leading the state but I want to assure them that the big hammer they think they wield will not find its target, they are in for a big surprise.
"The gentlemanly agreement by our founding fathers is been trampled upon by some individuals, who because of small loaves of bread, try to scuttle the zoning formula, but for the peace and equity of the state, the Southern Senatorial district should be given its due.
"I am also consoled by the fact that there is a principled, disciplined, experienced and steadfast State Party exco that will ensure equity and justice especially with the leadership of Venatius Ikem as Party Chairman.
"Our founding fathers are highly principled individuals and we know that justice will prevail because they will ensure that leadership as agreed, comes back to the South come 2023.
"I have come to surrender myself to my peoples, to my fathers, mothers brothers and sisters, all I need are your prayers and support, we know that going ahead will not be easy but the race is not to the swift nor for those with money bags or mercenaries, God will show Himself when the time comes.
"The development of Cross River state is Paramount, the state is more important and bigger than any individual or group and with the people on our side, we shall ensure that there is a breath of 'Fresh Air' in our state come 2023".
