Not Everyone Will Get Appointment, Otu Tells Cross Riverians

By Frank Ulom

In the wake of expectations and the spirit of Christmas, Governor Bassey Otu has assured Cross Riverians that he’ll be making more appointments but not for everyone.

Otu stated this as part of his Christmas message which assured the people of Cross River that his People’s First Agenda is bearing fruits, adding that all Cross Riverians will be partakers in it.

“We are building a viable sub-national that will be the envy of other states. We know there are agitations for appointments, appointments will come, but we should note that not all of us can be appointed.

“However, the sort of economy that we are building is such that you don’t need to be in government to do well,” Otu stated.

In his Christmas Message conveyed by his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Ogbeche, the Governor said the season is one of optimism, sacrifice and commitment to the ideals of good governance, human rights and the rule of law.

He said restoring the state to its rightful place is a gradual process that requires all hands to be on deck for the greater good.

“Christmas is a period of not just great optimism, sacrifice and commitment to the ideals of good governance, but one of sacrifice and love.

“I want to thank the people of the state for their continued support and urge them to continue in this regard. Our state is a work in progress to take our rightful place, but it requires diligence and patience from all concerned.

“I want to use this season to urge all Cross Riverians and citizens in the state to continue to work for the peace, progress and security of the state. My administration has invested a lot into agriculture and security and we will continue to do so until we build a virile and robust economy in the state.

“At present, investors are showing keen interest in what we are doing here and this is evident in the just concluded COP28 in Dubai where our state did not only have a stand but was the only one.

“The Carnival Calabar is back and bigger and can only get bigger. I urge you all to be your brother’s keeper and be security conscious at this time. During this period, I urge you to show the exemplary hospitality that Calabar is known for.

“As you celebrate, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year,” the Governor stated.
