Enough of the insults, Jarigbe slams PDP anti-automatic ticket protesters

Hon. Jarigbe Agom
Member representing Ogoja/Yala federal constituency, Honourable Jarigbe Agom has slammed some members of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) who stormed the party Secretariat yesterday in Calabar in protest against the decision of the party to grant automatic ticket to all national assembly members (NASS) for next election.

Recall that yesterday thousands of PDP supporters shutdown activities in the Secretariat demanding the party reversed the decision to grant all NASS members automatic ticket.

The protest turned bloody yesterday as two protesters were shot by PDP thugs who are in support of the decision. One of them has since been confirmed death while the second one is said to be receiving treatment in an unknown hospital.

The angry Reps who took to his Facebook page to lash out at the protesters said that the insult that some of them can't win return ticket was enough even as he said all the aspirants should return to the field to test their popularity.

Agom said he worked for the PDP for 16 years without any benefit but was disappointed that those who have benefitted so much from the party were those sponsoring protest against the NASS members who have been granted automatic ticket.

According to him "I worked for the Party (PDP) and other People for 16 years without an office (elective or appointive). People who have benefited so much from PDP are the ones protesting, when it doesnt favor them today. We all know where we all were before 1999. Some of us came to Govt without a bicycle. Who are we deceiving?

"My take is that everyone should go to the  field. Some of us protesting are even more favored as it concerns the Statutory Delegates.

My sympathy is with those who have never benefited and they are very few. I know that one day, it will be their own turn to serve and enjoy the much exaggerated benefits.

Some of you are benefiting from Cross River Satte government but you forget that some of us  worked even more than you but the Governor's magnanimity got you appointed. Enuf of the insults! Lets all go to the field. Nobody owns Cross River".
