As Cross Riverian decides who turns into the subsequent ninth Speaker, Cross River State House of Assembly, will probably be essential for the federal government and different centralist LGAs to additionally enable fairness and equity to prevail, giving {that a} native authorities council which has for the reason that inception of democracy positively supported the federal government in all ramifications ought to be handled as such.

It is most disheartening and really unlucky that  Obubra as one of many oldest LGAs in Central Senatorial District is the one LGA that has by no means loved the identical truthful sharing giving to different LGAs, therefore the appeal for the place of the CRHA Speaker, ninth Assembly ought to be Zone to Obubra as a present of compensation.

The easy fact is that, even the governor, Senator Ben Ayade himself is aware of that Obubra is the one LGA in central that has by no means loved the identical energy rotation, truthful sharing as evaluate to what others have had.

“We will not be asking for an excessive amount of, all we ask for is for fairness to prevail”

Now see the breakdown of all the highest appointments given to Etung, Boki, Yakurr, Ikom, Abi, leaving Obubra open.

IKOM LGA : Ikom has two highly effective commissioners along with different high political appointess.

ETUNG LGA : Etung has two highly effective commissioners along with Senator, in the meantime, Obubra has only one Commissioner along with Nothing with a voting power of over 103,000.

Etung has held the place of House of Representatives Seat for 16 years, in the meantime Obubra continues to be struggling to even make four years.

Etung has been the one having fun with the seat of home of Representatives for the previous 16 years, they almost gave it to Obubra as a result of they wanted to get the workplace of the Senate.

YAKURR LGA : Yakurr has two highly effective commissioners along with House of Representatives Seat, additionally, the identical Yakurr has held the place of the Speaker in individual of Rt. Hon Bassey Ewa, held the place of Reps for over 24 years. Hon Obeten Okorn is from Yakurr and has held the seat of House of Representatives for eight years, Hon Bassey Eko Ewa up until date he is nonetheless there, he has held that very same seat for greater than 16 years, so if the House of Representatives Seat that they had loved for 24 years and Obubra continues to be struggling to even end four years, is it this what they wish to use towards us (Obubra)?

If one might ask, The easy query is, the place Obubra is asking for, has Yakurr loved it earlier than? The reply is “YES”, however has Obubra odor it earlier than, the reply is “NO” after which going about mentioning the reasons that Obubra is at the moment holding the Seat of House of Representatives, and this is similar seat you have got loved for 24 years, okay! Even as Hon Mike Etaba has taken it, the very best Obubra will retain this seat is only for eight years

ABI LGA: Abi has two highly effective commissioners along with eighth Speaker, Cross River State home Of Assembly.

BOKI LGA: Boki has two highly effective commissioners along with the workplace of the Secretary To The State Government (SSG), which me and also you is aware of is the third most vital and highly effective workplace in every given state, and you already know what, Governor Ben Ayade has no intention to vary her, Boki goes to retain the workplace of the SSG, similar approach as Biase will nonetheless retain the workplace of the Deputy Governor.

So from the above evaluation, you might see that whoever is mentioning a difficulty of Obubra holding the workplace Obubra/Etung House of Representatives Seat, is just undermining, underrating and abusing Obubra as an LGA.

For the sake of fairness, justice and equity, I appeal that Boki, Etung, Yakurr, Abi, Ikom ought to help Obubra this time to additionally take pleasure in what they’ve loved.
