The Director General (DG) Caterpillar Movement, Chief Bisong Obi decried how Obubra has been neglected over the years since the demised of Chief John Oyom Okpa.
“Whoever that has been involved in the Politics of Cross River State, would know that Obubra was very strategic. But when you lost your leader, Chief John Oyom Okpa, that was a major setback in the political growth of the Obubra people”.
“After Chief John Okpa’s Death, Obubra LGA became like a no man’s land. Anybody can walk in there, toy with the people, use them left, right, centre and abandoned them.
But we are happy that the emerging leaders that are beginning to get up from Obubra and say enough is enough. You can’t continue to use us like this, we want to take our destiny in our hands”.
Continuing, Obi who thanked the member representing Obubra 1 State Constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Dr). Friday Okpechi Gabriel for always speaking truth to power, said he is an emerging leader, urged Obubra people to stay strong and remain united, irrespective of Political divides.
He said:- “I want to urged Obubra sons and daughters, irrespective of your divides, collapse, identify with one strong young man who is purposeful, he will give you leadership, so that he can pick your lost glory and run the race of power in Cross River. He said, it’s unfortunate we are where we are today.
Obi, who was reacting to the unprecedented influx of Fulani Herdsmen into the state’s northen region, said the development came few days after the governor’s defection to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

“No one will take the Obubra people for granted anymore, the Obubra people are fully in support of Senator Sandy Onor and the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP)”.
Reacting to the Governor’s defection to APC, the Lawmaker who donned a white hat with the words “Proudly PDP” plainly inscribed on it, said he is proud to be a PDP member and Obubra is PDP, because PDP was founded in Obubra LGA.
“They said they are moving because it didn’t favoured them. Would they moved if it had favoured them”?
