The Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Cross River chapter, Prince Mike Ojisi, has accused the state government of threat to his life, family and party members.
The opposition party’s Spokesman disclosed this in a petition addressed to the Commissioner of Police, State headquarters, Calabar, stating that agents believed to be working for the government of Cross River State are trying to eliminate him after “the party, through my office as the Publicity Secretary reacted to an investigative publication made by an online media platform, Point Blank News, wherein the report indicted the State Government and her cronies of allegedly looting the sum of over N100billion from the State Treasury” and since then his life has been at stake.
The party called on the Police to launch a full investigation into the threats.
It could be recalled that, Rt. Hon. Patrick Ene Okon, a one time member of the Green Chambers of the National Assembly, who represented Akpabuyo, Bakassi and Calabar South has cleared the air on how zoning began in Cross River State since 1999.
Ene who stated this in Calabar earlier through a statement captioned those living in Glass Houses, Do Not Throw Stones, narrated how Donald Duke was the first Cross Riverian to benefit from Zoning after the then Senate President Joseph Wayas made a derogatory statement against the South and went ahead to upturn the results against Professor Eyo Etim Nyong of APP.
Ene’s statement reads in full below: “In 1999, the three political parties in Cross River State voted for their gubernatorial candidates from the Southern Senatorial District:
– Alliance for Democracy (AD): Etubom Bassey Ekpo Bassey
– All People’s Party (APP): Professor Eyo Etim Nyong
– People’s Democratic Party (PDP): Donald Etim Duke.
“That was zoning – internally crafted and effected by the parties by crosssriverians!!!”
