|A-R: Utum Eteng and John OwOwan-Eno|
Nyok|7 September 2018
Leading legal practitioner in the Cross River State, Mr Utum Eteng, has posed four important questions to the incumbent Senator representing Cross River Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly and gubernatorial aspirant, Mr John Owan-Enoh NegroidHaven can report authoritatively.
This development is following the news of the declaration of intention, by Owan-Enoh, to vie for the Office of Executive Governor of Cross River State. And the questions border on what his achievements as Senator is, perceived defection back to the PDP, anti-Efik rhetoric, etc? Excerpts:
‘My distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
‘I welcome to your desire to be our Executive Governor come 2019.
‘1. However, my take for today is to request you with respect to humbly point it out to us the people of both the state and the Central Senatorial District what you’ve achieved or brought to us having regards to your posturing when you canvassed to replace Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba SAN from the Senate who then had risen to become the Leader of the Senate?
‘I direct this question to you as a person for now and also request you to visit the video clips made in your public outings and your campaign promises. I may oblige you with some upon a proper request. There is some level of past information that lived on even at death.
‘2. My senator, from more than two newspapers my friend in Abuja showed and handed to me, your name is printed perhaps in error as no 10 in the list of R-APC senators wishing to defect with Saraki and others from the ruling APC to the PDP. I expected a disclaimer from you now that most of all the listed senators mentioned have defected to the PDP.
‘3. Is it true that our former Governor, my dear brother, Liyel lmoke and your bosom friend Governor of Sokoto state Tambuwal are behind your governorship ambition in the APC with a view to move over to join them in the PDP when you shall have been made our governor?
‘These questions may be political speculations needing your attention which is desirable.
‘4. Sir, is the claim that you said you can become the governor on the votes of the Ejaghams, that you neither need the Efiks or the northern senatorial district to become governor?
‘Wishing you the best as I urge you not to believe that urge that money can purchase every body.
‘God bless our Senator/governor.
