Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s Son-In-Law Declares Interest in Upcoming Governorship Election in Cross Rivers State

Special Adviser on Sports and Cinematography to Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross Rivers State, Prince Godswill Edward who also doubles as son-in-law to former Nigerian President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has declared his interest in the 2023 governorship election under the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Edward, who spoke in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Calabar, said his desire to be in the contest is to consolidate on the gains of tourism, rural transformation and industrialisation in the state, noting that the former governors of the state, Mr Donald Duke and Sen. Liyel Imoke, uplifted the state through tourism and rural transformation, while Gov. Ben Ayade came up with the agenda to industrialise the state.

“It is on that basis that I am running for governor, to consolidate on the gains of tourism, rural transformation and industrialisation.

“My agenda is to consolidate; let us get what our leaders have done and built over time for the good and growth of the state.

“Let us consolidate on People, Policy and Infrastructure with a view to getting Cross River working.

“We need to look at all of these and build the confidence of our investors to grow the state,” he said.
