Bakassi : Ayade's house policy, stipend for IDPs, laudable gesture- DC

Dr. Dornclaims Enamhe in a handshake with Governor Ben Ayade

Former Senior Special Assistant to ex-govetnor Liyel Imoke, Dr. Dornclaimz Enamhe has described as laudable the welfare package of Cross River State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade for the Internally Displaced People (IDPs) of Bakassi.

Enamhe stated this while speaking with newsmen in Calabar recently over the agitation by the Governor for a better treatment of the state by the federal government.

He said that "let’s try and appreciate the Governor for the 52 new houses he's building for the Bakassi people. Shockingly, it is complete with solar powered street lights, road network and electricity connected to the National grid with water".

He added that "we also appreciate his consistent monthly stipend to the IDPs. It’s unprecedented and second to none. His efforts at the Bakassi sea port is unimaginable. I'm happy that the project has been accepted by all Nigerians especially our brothers from Northern Nigeria".

On the agitation for a better deal for the state, Enamhe lamented that it was pure wickedness for the federal government to turn it back on the state because of what he described as dubious judgments that ceded the Bakassi to Cameroun as well as the 76 oil wells to Akwa Ibom.

He maintained that it was sheer hypocrisy on the part of the federal government to only implement part of the judgement that favours Akwa Ibom and abandoned Cross River completely.

"I wonder how those at the federal level think. There was a judgement ceding our oil wells to Akwa Ibom State and in that same judgement, although dubious, the Supreme Court ordered that Cross River should be perpetually paid stabilisation funds. Unfortunately, the part that favours Akwa Ibom was implemented almost immediately and that of Cross River overlooked.

"So, I want to commend the Govervnor for coming out to demand justice. I want to assure him that he's not alone on this as all Cross Riverians are solidly behind him on this agitation", he said.

Enamhe is the initiator of the "Think Cross River" advocacy group.
