Attah Denies Media Report On PDP Reconciliation

Published

on

The immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom State, Arc. (Obong) Victor Attah, has declared as false the report in local mass media that he accepted the truce brokered by the Ike Nwachukwu-led reconciliation committee between him and Chief Akpabio.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters at his Uyo residence on Thursday, Attah insisted that PDP guidelines must be followed in the election of the party state chairman or any position for that matter.
Nothing that the incumbent party chairman, Prince Uwem Ita Etuk, was not elected according the party principles and constitution.
Attah, who said prior to the visit of the Ike Nwachukwu-led PDP elders reconciliation committee, that the party had outlined the procedure for reconciliation, regretted that what took place on Tuesday at Ibom Hall was not part of the agreement.
However, he appreciated the committee of elders for their efforts to make the erring party chairman realise his mistakes and do the needful, even though he had earlier said apology was not necessary.
Attah, who explained why he hugged Chief Godswill Akpabio on arrival at his residence alongside the elders, said he habours no ill feelings against the governor or his office.
According to him, all he wants is that PDP constitution must be upheld in handling all matters that pertain to the party.
The briefing which went paralled to that of governor Akpabio in the hilltop mansion, had as speakers, a frontline politician, in Uyo, Senator John J. Udoedeghe, who said governor Akpabio offered him N4bn to support his second term bid.
Saying as one of those who supported governor Akpabio to become the governor, he will leave no stone unturned to see to it that he does not go back for second term. According to him, Akpabio’s government is deceitful and wasteful, adding, if he was not put on check, the state will go bankrupt.
A former National Assembly man, Hon. Effiong Ononokpono, said he warned Obong Attah not to give power to Akpabio, adding that there is fraud in his style of governance.
He added that from the way things are going, there is a sign of failed state in Akwa Ibom.
Speaking earlier, a former commissioner during Obong Attah’s first tenure, Hon. Idongesit Udokpoh, said PDP constitution must be followed in putting anybody into position.
According to him, there was no in-fighting in Akwa Ibom State PDP, “all we are saying is that things must be done properly to save the party from being hijacked by wrong people.”

The event which held at Saint Peter’s Primary School, Ikot Offiong Ambai, to mark the World Pneumonia Day, saw a contingent of six selected primary schools take part in lecture sessions on pneumonia awareness by experts from the SOHEALTHI Team, climaxing with a spelling competition where winners were given pneumonia-crested exercise books and cash prizes.
At the end of the spelling competition, Amicable Ebrigor Offu and Martha Joseph Aya, both of St. Peter’s Primary School, Ikot Offiong Ambai, emerged joint best performing students, scoring 100 percent, Godsfavour Okon Eyo and Abigail Godwin Anthony, also of St. Peter’s Primary School, came second, scoring 90% apiece, while Victoria Asuquo Okon of St. Peter’s Primary School and Wendy Edet Ekpo of Jehovah Shalom Primary School, clinched third position, scoring 80percent respectively.
In her remarks, the Founder and Team Lead of the NGO, Mrs Rosemary Archibong, stated that SOHEALTHI, founded in 2006, was saddled with the responsibility of creating awareness and advocating for a pneumonia-free world in accordance with this year’s Theme: ‘Keep the Promise; Stop Pneumonia Now.’
Mrs Archibong noted that, according to global indices, the disease sickens 155 million children under five years and kills 1.6 million each year, it has become pertinent to bring this health crisis to public’s attention, encourage policy makers and grassroot organizers alike to combat the disease.

SUBEB Boss Urges Staff To Support Ayade

Published

on

The Executive Chairman, Cross River State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Stephen Odey has enjoined staff of the board to complement Governor Ben Ayade’s efforts in the basic education sub-sector by supporting him to realise his lofty programmes for the State.
He made this known in a meeting to mark his three years in office as Executive Chairman of SUBEB.  Dr Odey said in spite of the financial status of the State, Governor Ayade had made remarkable impact across sectors in the State, especially in the Basic Education sub-sector.
According to Dr Odey, “he is a young man that has a lot of energy, and with ambitious plans for the state, but he is being frustrated by lack of funds”.
Speaking on the achievements recorded in the basic education sub-sector, he thanked Governor Ayade and staff of SUBEB for their support, adding that these feats could not have been achieved without the support of the Governor and hard work of Staff.
He urged staff to remain committed to their responsibilities, stating that “hard work, dedication and loyalty pays in the long run.”
Speaking earlier, the Director of Administration, Emmanuel Ojong, commended Dr Odey for the giant strides recorded in the board within this short time in Office.
He recalled the massive infrastructural developments in schools across the State, and the sanitisation of SUBEB work force to eliminate ghost workers and track down staff without requisite teaching qualifications. Ojong also poured encomiums on the Board Chairman for placing staff welfare at the forefront of his administration.
