The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River has postponed the flag-off of the state’s campaign activities indefinitely.
The APC Publicity Secretary in the state, Erasmus Ekpang, confirmed the development in a statement on Thursday in Calabar.
Ekpang said a new date would be communicated accordingly.
The APC campaign rally in the state was earlier slated to take place from December 5 to December 10.
The statement read: “We understand the strain and imbalance, this has caused a lot of our party faithful who have since relocated to Northern Senatorial District in preparation for the flag-off.
“We want to sincerely apologise to all and inform you that this postponement became inevitable due to national engagements with our party candidates and critical stakeholders in Abuja.
“We wish to use this medium to appreciate and appeal to all party faithful that everyone will have a place of pride in the campaign council either at the state, local government, or ward level.
“Our focus is on victory for the party as we assure all party faithful that it will be a clean sweep.”
