‘Leave Betta Edu Out Of Your Problems, Your Wife Is Hospitalised For Hemorrhoids, Not COVID-19’ — Cross Riverians Exposed Cletus Obum
It is wrong always, everywhere, and for everyone to believe anything upon insufficient evidence. For two days now, the Cross River State media space has been filled with malicious posts sponsored by the Former State Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Cross River State central, Chief Cletus Obun, calling on Governor Benedict Ayade to sack Dr. Betta Edu, and other key officials in the health ministry over alleged mismanagement of COVID-19 and consequently compromising the health of the people of the state. This lies are selfish unfounded and unnecessary!
But as is typical of most public commentators, Obun for very clearly obvious reasons didn’t escape the temptation of embarking on a voyage and in the process reaching very speculative conclusions, which could have been avoided had he simply adhered to the maxim that facts are sacred, and whenever in doubt leave out.
For instance, Obun has forgotten suddenly that his wife has multiple medical problems which have automatically become COVID19, according to him. What concerns the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Betta Edu or COVID19 with a woman who has been hospitalized for a Hemorrhoid that needs mesh and has lasted for at least 5 years.
Obun who accused the state government of abandoning his wife, Mrs. Glory Obun, a laboratory scientist in the state government-owned Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH), his worry shouldn’t have been to call on the governor to sack the ever-working commissioner, but to achieve his dubious agenda, Obun had to drag Betta’s name into the issue even before she was contacted on it he was at press paying for reportage- giving a dog a bad name, in other to justify hanging it.
Why the hatred on a woman that has taken pains to work hard to give Cross River State a good name in terms of health services? When will the pull-down syndrome in Cross River state end? Betta is a hard worker who is committed to health care and she is doing well. As recognized nationally and internationally. Paying Journalists to send out lies will only push her to greater prominence. It’s not surprising that these lies are coming from a man who is known for concurrent lies. Little wonder he was removed from his former seat in the party for similar things. The attempts at labeling Dr. Betta a bigot, have always failed and would continue to fail, because like they say actions speak louder than words. God fights for those whose intentions and actions are sincere!
First, you say your wife has COVID19 and she is dying in the hospital, now the truth is out that she has several long-standing medical issues unrelated to COVID-19 you say you wish to go to court because the truth was revealed by Dr. Genevive Barnaby. Dr Betta Edu in all of these has not said a word to you or anyone,she never revealed your wives Medical history to anyone. Karma only has beautiful ways of exposing people just after the lies occur. Sir you cannot approbate and reprobate at same time! You said you were attended to by Dr Genevive Barnaby, but you were abandoned by CRS COVID19 response; she is part of the COVID19 response of CRS !
Cross River State has one of the best COVID19 response in the Country, the report daily on NCDC SOMAS dashboard, to relevant authorities, their records are clear complete and in public domain, accessible to all including you!
There is no doubt that Dr. Betta Edu has political enemies, most of whom by the way she made in the line of duty. This is because she has restored the master plan of a proper health system and introduced many landmark policies that other states are replicating. The one-sided narrative is understandable considering that her known political enemies have a strong presence in the media, and others who were essentially hired to harass Dr. Betta Edu. The beautiful aspect is that she is always so focused and pays no attention to blackmail!
Overall Dr. Betta Edu rather than being crucified, deserves commendation for having discharged the patriotic duty that she owed Cross River State, Nigeria, and herself by working with like-minded people of the Sen. Ayade government.
