The Commissioner for Youths Development in Cross River State, Barr. Odum Ijom Ukam has been under fire in the last couple of hours over his social media post, following the Elections Petition Tribunal judgement.
CONVERSEER reports that the Elections Petition Tribunal had on Tuesday (Sept. 26) upheld the election of Sen. Bassey Otu as the Governor of Cross River State.
Shortly after the court rulings, Barr. Ukam took to Facebook to post a coffin with the inscription, “Prof. Sandy Ono of PDP RIP”, followed by the caption, “Eeeyaaah….so this is how it finally ended?”
The post has attracted a lot of reactions, with many supporting it while others kicking against it.
Below are some of the comments extracted by CONVERSEER.
