CONVERSEER gathered that Idrah is a man of his word and charisma and was allegedly tempted with appointment by former Governor Ben Ayade but he refused to be bought.

He has a lot of youths and community influence towards building a better Cross River State.

CONVERSEER reports that several members of the PDP have defected to the APC in the last three months in the state, including former Local Government Chairman and Reps Candidate, Hon. Mike Usibe and former two-time State House of Assembly Member, Rt. Hon. Efa Esua.
