Sen. John Owan-Enoh, the All Progressive Congress (APC) 2019 governorship candidate in Cross River, has called on members of the party to close ranks and build a united and stronger party in the state.

In a statement to APC members in the state, Owan-Enoh said it was time for all factions of the party in the state to put the past behind and forge ahead.

He said it was time to collapse the two factions of the party in the state and unite firmly behind the Minister of State for Power, Prince Goddy Jeddy-Agba.

"In spite of the avoidable internal wrangling that bedeviled our chances in the last general elections, you have established and maintained unwavering faith in our party which I must commend you so highly for.

"The impasse we faced should point us all to a new common ground and the lessons should serve to remind us that beyond our individual ambitions, we are one people with a shared history and a common destiny," he said.

The former lawmaker stressed that the disputes that ensued during the party's congresses in 2017 culminated in the fiercely fought party primaries in the build-up to the 2019 general elections.

He said that candidates of the party went into the elections fragmented, factionalized and disunited, adding that the outcomes have been extremely undesirable for members of the party in the state.

The rulings of the Election Petition Tribunal and the subsequent judgments of the Court of Appeal have no doubt given credence to the timeless biblical injunction that, "A house divided against itself cannot stand.
