A politician, lawyer, legislator and academic, Rt. Hon. Barr. Ogana Lukpata is the Senatorial aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the coming by-election to complete the three years tenure of Cross River North Senatorial District following the death of Sen. Rose Oko recently in the United Kingdom.
The former two term member of the Cross River State House of Assembly and National Legal Adviser to the defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP) who doubled as the sole Administrator of the Party in Borno and Yobe States as well as former special Adviser to the Cross River State Government on Legal matters says his vision is to lunch the Northern Senatorial District into the path of sustainable socio-economic progress, infrastructural growth and youth empowerment.
Rt. Hon. Ogana Lukpata while engaging The Lens Reporter in Calabar recently, said he is immensely qualified in legislative practice and procedures and urged PDP to select and endorse him because he is a veteran who will save the party from inexperience folks.
And responding to a question on his level of preparedness, he said I have done extensive consultations from my party the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the ward, state and National levels. I have also consulted delegates from the Northern Senatorial District, Stakeholders and Opinion Leaders as well as Traditional Rulers. He said Consultation is still ongoing though he has already attained a 90% mark.
