It is important to state that the Senator Jarigbe’s Campaign Organization was never invited to inspect the Ogoja Rice Mill, so as to assess the Project in order to make a statement on the functionality or otherwise of the purported Rice Mill.
Dr Dorn Cklaimz, was invited by some of his friends to the purported Rice Mill, in his personal capacity. He might have fell for their hoodwink and made statements based on the optics. His impression at the time, cannot be substantiated at the moment. What he said did not and does not represent the position of the Peoples Democratic Party or Senator Jarigbe’s Campaign Council. It is obvious that the intention was to set a booby trap for some Leaders and some people walked in to it. We can fool some people, sometimes but we can’t fool all the people, all the time. We can notice how happy the failed Government is, because they cajoled four Ogoja Men. The narrative of the abysmal performance of this Government has still not changed, for your information. You guys have to come up with new tricks.
We cannot fall for the cheap lies being peddled, on the functionality of the Ogoja Rice Mill. Looking at the cost of putting up that structure, everyone knows that the Project is over priced. It was crafted as a conduit to fleece away our resources, as a State. The Rice Mill is not functional and there is no intention for it to function. Let anyone in Ogoja take a walk to the Rice Mill right now and tell us the truth. The place is under lock and key.
The melodrama put together by some of the Gov’s boys to deceive Dr Dorn Cklaimz Enamhe and other Leaders is typical of this Government. It is time for Gov Ayade to complete the road network, from Mfom to Obudu, get the Groundnut Factory in Bekwarra functional, get the so called German Specialists Hospital functional, so he can at least leave some legacies, in Cross River North, where he comes from. Projects are not meant to be abandoned, after using them to deplete state funds and doing photo ops.
The other illusionary Projects, such as the Super Highway, the Spaghetti flyover in Odukpani, the Bakassi Deep Sea Port etc, have remained wishful and can rightly pass for white elephant projects.
We are ashamed of the people who know the truth but out of hunger and desperation still tell lies to our people, to cajole the innocent electorates.
Our people are wiser. You can tell our people, you gave food on the table to 1% of the Electorates, but you cannot talk about Infrastructural development, human capital development or any completed or functional Industry. Our hospitals are dilapidated, our schools are not habitable, the roads are not motorable, filth littered everywhere, our forest reserves totally depleted, no potable water for our people. In the Governor’s village, the villagers still drink dirty water from ponds. A man who cannot provide the low hanging fruits, wants to continue building castles in the air.
Can this Government tell us that the purported Cargo Airport is going to be completed and functional before the end of this administration ? What happens to the desecration that has been carried out on the ancestral homes of our people ?
Once more, remember that our people are no more gullible. As we put the funds together for the elections,depriving them of social amenities, let us know that the people are preparing to collect the money and pay us back in our own coin.
