BY CONCERN FRIENDS OF OBUBRA.
It is on document that for the reason that inception of the present Democratic dispensation fromm 1999,which is about 20 years working,the Obubra people have at all times proven & demonstrated their goodwill when it comes to their contributions by voting massively for PDP in all of the elections,Its certainly saddening that despite this big assist,Obubra haven’t been handled pretty when it comes to sharing key & delicate positions in authorities.
Obubra is without doubt one of the LGs within the Central Senatorial District with 5 different Local Government Areas specifically:Abi,Yakurr,Ikom,Etung & Boki LGAs.
It’s instructive to notice that Central Senatorial District is additional categorized into two smaller unites of:old Obubra comprising of Abi,Yakurr & Obubra LGAs,& old Ikom comprising of: Ikom,Etung & Boki LGAs respectively.
Over the years all the opposite 5 LGAs apart from Obubra from old Obubra block have held the positions of Governors,Senators,Members of the House of Representatives,Secretaries to the state authorities & Speakers of CRSHA.In addition,the opposite LGAs have additionally massively benefited from delicate appointments as commissioners,Special Advisers & Chairmen of Boards & Commissions within the state,leaving Obubra with just one commissioner within the present dispensation.
Under the present dispensation,Abi LGA has two commissioners & the present Speaker of Cross River State House of Assembly. Rt Hon.John Gaul Lebo & many board & commissions chairmen.
Yakurr up to now had produced a speaker within the particular person of Rt Hon.Bassey Ewa on the identical time Chief Obeten Okorn was a Reps Member throughout the identical dispensation,presently, the identical Yakurr has two commissioners,a seating member of the House of Reps, delicate Boards & commissions chairmen.
Etung LGA had produced a Member of the House of Reps for the previous 12years,a serving senator & presently a senator elect together with two serving commissioners, delicate boards & commissions chairmen.
Ikom had additionally produced a Senator for the previous 12 years within the particular person of Senator Victor Ndoma Egba,delicate boards & fee Chairmen & two serving commissioners.
Boki LGA had additionally produced a Senator M. T.Mbu Jnr (1999-2003)Member of the House of Reps for 12 years & underneath that very same dispensation, two state celebration chairmen (Rev Ikobi & Chief Sunny Abang),two serving Commissioners & delicate Boards Chairmen together with Secretary to the state authorities (SSG).
From the evaluation introduced above,it has clearly proven that it’s only Obubra with two state constituencies with voting power of One Hundred And Three Thousand(103,000)votes that haven’t been correctly favored within the distribution & energy rotation of delicate positions underneath this democratic dispensation since 1999.
Therefore,it is completely essential & justifiable for Obubra people to appeal & request that the place of Speaker of Cross River State House of Assembly be zoned to Obubra LGA.
In different to foster a harmonious relationship between Obubra & different sisters LGAs within the Central Senatorial District in addition to different LGAs within the state,the aspiration of Obubra people to supply the following Speaker of the ninth Assembly be correctly inspired regarded into.
We additionally use this medium to humbly name on our nice celebration the PDP so as to add a voice to this clarion name by equally zoning the place of Speaker to Obubra to allow her produce the speaker of the ninth Assembly within the forth coming dispensation.
