I challenge all teachers to sit up, come to school early, deliver your lectures to these innocent children, and do your best for us. It is your responsibility to inculcate the right values in them, teach them to be neat in appearance. It is your responsibility as a teacher to teach them what to do,” he stated.

THE MASTER OF THE GAME IS ALWAYS THE WINNER.

Some the talk this…
Some the talk that..
What is that…Who you EPP?

The master of the game is one who holds the ace, the game changer and a known winner and above all always winning doggedly.

In mentoring it is acceptable for a mentee to rise to expertise such that the master(mentor) is excited over the growth, dexterity and heroic exploits. A biblical allusion can be arrived at here- John the Baptist prepares the way for Jesus who he said his(Jesus’) sandals he(John) cannot unbuckled.

In Cross River State we have witnessed in the recent days, and months nomadic politicians in voyages for greeneries, a former acting governor Mr. Larry Odey whose victory to CR.State House of Assembly that led him becoming Speaker, was made possible by over 7,000 PDP votes from Yache nation as against the major contender Barrister Alphonsus Ogar Eba of then ANPP who had swept and won in other wards of Yala speaking, the arrival of the votes from Yache nation changed the game.

Lemme ask who ‘e EPP’ As Speaker and Acting Governor? We are now seeing the obvious selfish and self centered set of acclaimed politicians… Their pocket methinks is their concern.

Many thanks to the Executive Governor H.E Senator (PROF) Ben Ayade for decoupling the state and not allowing selfish politicians to hijacked the state. The veil is opened now and we see clearly and better now.

Recall; in the recent past Senator Owan Eno Obliged the governor to get all the slots wards congresses, to as well allow him Owan Eno to produce all the councilors and chairmen in central and the governor asked him, why will he do that especially that critical stakeholders are not carried by his selfish intent? Later on Governor Ayade and Former Governor Liyel met and Liyel was commending on the loyalty of Senator Owan and Ayade asked Liyel if he was sure about Owan Eno’s loyalty especially that he plans hijacking the Central from all the stakeholders including the former governor, it was not long he migrated as a nomadic politician to the APC.

Of recent, Senator Rose Oko mobilized other legislators to  petition governor Ayade to the national chairman about the concluded ward congresses, explaining to the PDP national chairman that governor Ayade hijacked the ward congresses and produced all the ward executive of the PDP in Cross River State thereby exposing her fears of not going back to the red chambe!

When you are disconnected from your people you are bound to make erroneous assumptions such as this, I do know that the leadership of our great party knows their onions. Senator Oko mobilised other lawmakers from the state in a letter to the National Chairman
of the PDP dated October 12, 2017 and warned that unless something urgently is done to remedy the situation, the party stands a poor chance in the 2019 elections. This is hogwash, baseless and with time be proven otherwise.

The letter signed by nine legislators led by Senator Rose Oko (Cross River North) accused the governor of hijacking the state congresses to the exclusion of stakeholders.

“We bring to your attention the state of the structure of the PDP in Cross River State. The 2016 party congresses ostensibly saw the election of new officials for the state, local government area and ward executive officers for the party. There was however an aberration in the manner the congresses were done, as it excluded party stakeholders and elders across the state that became tantamount to a selection rather than an election. The implication of this is that there is now a general apathy (sic) and despondency among party members in the state, most of whom have felt the need to move out of the party to other parties, and indeed have done so,” the petition reads.

Now let us go down memory lane, in the glorious days of Senator Liyel Imoke as Chief Executive Officer of Cross River State, PDP ward congresses then was more of selection and or appointments, then it was correct and commended by Senator Rose Oko and cohorts. Recall that the PDP primary that saw Madam Rose to the green chambers of the National Assembly was hijacked by Senator Liyel the then CEO of the state and it was said to be a family affairs not even the brightest contenders/aspirants could cough. Same thing transpired during the race for the Senate, Madam Oko was on medical tourism at the U.S. voted in absence. Why cry foul now that Governor Ayade is decoupling the polity to enshrine a fair, conducive and level playing ground.

For the test of popularity and been connected to the electorate should now become a priority for anyone with any political interest to any office. Gone are the days of the old style whereby calls are made and primary elections are subverted to benefit selfish interests.

The governor Ben Ayade’s administration is truly taking back government to the people, running an inclusive administration. Having able bodied youths with vigor and mentoring them to deliver excellence at all the strata of the people’s paradise and beyond.

Very commendable are the giant strides recorded at the Basic Education Sector where Barrister Stephen Odey PhD.
The Executive Chairman of Cross River  SUBEB is vigorously entrenching the quality assurance and best practices by implementation of His Excellency’s mandate in the provision of Basic, Qualitative and Efficient Education to Cross River/Nigerian children of school going age. The same is happening at the Cross River Primary Health Care Development Agency, where Dr. Betta Edu is working round the clock penetrating and taking health care to the poorest and remotest of communities in the state as D.G. etc.

Let us all join hands with the administration of Governor Ayade who is selfless and people focus. We will not want bad belly and selfish legislators to paint our governor and the PDP in Cross River be dented.

Now our Supersonic Digital Governor Benedict Ayade is the Master of the game, and the master of the game is always the winner for example… The game between the SUPER EAGLES VS. ARGENTINA is very fresh in our minds what it means to be the master of the game.

By Uchino Amatey

Following his passion for the basic education sub-sector and in a bid to ensure that pupils/students in the State have equal opportunities to excel, Governor Ben Ayade has given approval for the commencement of academic activities at the UBEC Model Junior Secondary school, Akpabuyo, Cross River State.

The Executive Chairman, State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr Stephen Odey made this known during a meeting with the Village Head of the host community(Atimbo Ekpo Edem), His Highness, Charles Bassey Edet.

According to him “due to the governor’s passion and vision for the basic education sub-sector, he has graciously granted SUBEB the approval to open this school and commence academic activities.” 

Soliciting for their support, Dr Odey said following the governor’s approval all hands must be on deck to ensure a successful take-off “we need your support and collaboration, if you have a school here and you carry your children to another school, the school will be empty. Security is also very key, you must ensure that the security of staff and pupils is ensured. We will continue to partner with you to make sure that this school succeeds.” He emphasized.

Speaking on employment, He warned those with fake certificates to stir clear as only credible and qualified staff will be employed “Let me warn, if you forge certificate, I will not take you, because Education is supposed to be the centre of excellence. I can tell you that the quality of teachers, I will bring to this school are going to be the best, just like in other UBEC schools in Abi and Yala. I believe that if you have the opportunity of sending your children to school, they should be able to read and write so that they come out and become leaders of this Country. We have to encourage the young ones and we must make sure that the right thing is done.”

Responding, the village Head of Atimbo Ekpo Edem, His Highness, Charles Bassey Edet and members of his council extended gratitude to the Board and state government.

While assuring of the community’s support, His Highness, Charles Bassey Edet said “What you are doing in our community is a developmental project that will assist the village and our children. Right from the beginning of this project, we have been protecting the interest of the school because we know that the school will be of benefit to our children and the next generation to come. One person alone cannot protect the school, it is our collective effort that has secured the school up till today and I assure you that we will continue to put more effort to secure the school.”

As part of the federal government’s commitment in ensuring quality education for citizens, three Junior Secondary schools were built, one in each senatorial district. It will be recalled that the UBEC Model Junior Secondary schools in Abi and Yala LGAs commenced academic activities in 2016.

As part of its activities, the Executive Chairman and Management paid a need assessment tour to the UBEC Model Junior Secondary School, Akpabuyo, and an unscheduled visit to Jehovah Shalom African Church Primary School, Esuk Ekpo Eyo, Akpabuyo LGA.
