This alert to all Cross Riverians has become necessary in view of the suspected conspiracy going on by some of our Senators in the National Assembly. They are alleged to have concluded arrangement to sell out the position of the Non-Executive Commissionership in the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) graciously given to Cross River by President Muhammadu Buhari to another state in the South-South for their selfish interest and pecuniary gains.
Cross Riverians will recall that after the President nominated Chief Okoi Obono Obla to represent the interest of South-South in management board, Obla was duly screened and publicly confirmed by the Senate on November 17, 2016. The votes and proceedings of the senate sitting as reflected in pages 889 – 890 were fully documented to bear testimony to the open confirmation given to Obla. One is by this information calling on all Cross Riverians to rise up to condemned unequivocally this malicious act of some of these members of the upper legislative chambers.
Their actions are a threat to the peaceful co-existence of the entire population of the state. The opportunity extended to us as a people cannot be sacrificed on the altar of self-seeking and myopic interest of one or two people on account of the privileges enjoyed on behalf of the entire population of the state. We are calling on these individuals to take immediate steps and recall the unprofitable and destructive journey they may have embarked on.
By this notice, one seeks to draw the attention of the Senate President to recall the correspondence transmitted to the President through the Special Adviser to Mr. President on National Assembly matters (Senate). This is necessary because one verily believe that he was misled by these two members of the upper legislative chambers for their personal gains.
