A Message to Ogar Emmanuel Oko: Yala LG boss aspirant replies social commentator


Efio-Ita Nyok|10 February 2017 Two Yala sons are embroiled in political fisticuffs. The one, Special Assistant Declan Genesis Ogar is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Chairmanship aspirant while the other, Emmanuel Oko Ogar is a prominent member of the Young Democratic Party (YDP). The later yesterday published an article on social media challenging the political aspiration of the former in an article titled: Chairmanship Ambition: The Unsorted Issue. The former has replied in another article titled: A Message to Ogar Emmanuel Oko. Oko has queried the achievement of Ogar while Ogar is suing for 'peace'. Excerpt: Declan Genesis Ogar :
My dear brother, Ogar Emmanuel Oko, when last I checked, I can't really remember how I hurt you by any means and failed to apologize. But your recent article against my political life is leaving me a bit dumbfounded. I wish I don't have any cause whatsoever, of dazzling with you. Absolutely no need for razzmatazzing. It's uncalled for! Meanwhile, I also use this opportunity to sue for PEACE and FOCUS. I call on all my able teaming followers and supporters to maintain calmness. Remain humbler than before. Be dedicated and sacrificial. Letting them to understand that society cannot exist in the midst of 'operation fire for fire'. I am sure as informed as our brother Ogar Emmanuel Oko is, he also understands the fact that not all trade one delves into that one must gain even in the immediate. Let's give love a place instead of hate please. Emmanuel Oko Ogar :
CHAIRMANSHIP AMBITION: THE UNSORTED ISSUE Declan Ogar-Genesis' ambition of becoming the next CHAIRMAN of Yala LGA to me is a laughable attempt. So far, as S.A. to the Governor of Cross River State, CRS on Youth Affairs, I wonder what he has done for his immediate people or the youths of CRS in general. Or better still, benefited from the government even as an aide to the Governor in charge of a vital set of people in the state? To a plethora of folks, they see chairman of a local government as a 'puppet' of the sitting governor which to a reasonable extent is valid, especially if they are of the same political party. And so, can do little or nothing on his own even as Chairman of a council. Being one of the foot soldiers of the governor and as one young man who single-handedly publicized Ayade and embellished the man's candidature into the hearts of many politically conscious electorates in the state both at home and in diaspora, one can hardly see him as an appointee of a governor unlike some of his counterparts mostly from the Obudu axis. I see many of them whom their appointments were made at that initial time in comfortable offices with official government vehicles and many building houses and living very comfortable in Calabar and elsewhere. But, on his part, no different. I understands, he doesn't even have an office to operate and discharge his statutory responsibility. WHY? Your answers are as good as my observation! Note worthily, Declan Ogar-Genesis was the only young man from Yala LGA who featured himself openly canvassing for sincere supports for Ayade right from day one apart from those who were under Ayade's payroll as Senator's aides. Even when many others were still contemplating and waiting for the direction of the then governor and the party. Sometimes, when I come across him trekking along the streets and almost begging for food to eat and still eulogizing the governor, I pity him. When you go close to him, he reference Ayade as if the governor is his demigod. I try to check very well, if the young man is actually normal. Especially, now that I am hearing he is very much interested to become Yala LGA CHAIRMAN still under Ayade. I remember, before Ayade declared his intention of running the Cross River State governorship election, Declan was one of the few youths barking and raising their voices furiously and ferociously to the world that it must be Prof Ayade, else, Cross River State may not have a governor after Liyel Imoke. Wasted and fruitless venture you may conclude? Now, that question is that what has he seen differently in Ayade that others could not see, such that he is behaving as if he is so ready to die for Ayade? The opinion is mine, whoever that pick offense by this may present a sound logical rebuttal. Personally, I don't have any qualm with the young man or his appointment or whatever he aspires to become whether a puppet or not. But, as social crusader and an indigene of Yala, I must air out my view without fear or favour. Let me rest my case for now and see how its goes. **If we say one good turn deserves another I dare ask : what are the achievements of Special Assistant Declan Genesis-Ogar that is logically necessitating his chairmanship aspiration? Did Ogar reply Oko adequately? Be the judge. Efio-Ita Nyok
