In Breaking News, Reports

by crossriverwatch admin

A baby of about two days old abandoned by an unknown mother was found dead behind the Medical Students Hostel, University of Calabar near the office of the Cross River State first lady, Mrs. Obioma Liyel-Imoke.

Speaking at the scene where the dead baby was abandoned, special assistant to the Governor on Public Health/ NGO and Special Projects, Dr. Regina Ejemot-Nwadiaro said her attention was drawn to the incident by an anonymous caller which prompted her presence to the scene.

Ejimot-Nwadiaro said that immediately she got to the place, she called the Calabar Urban Development Authority, CUDA, who quickly responded to the call and subsequently alerted the Police.

She condemned the perpetrator of the act which she described as dastardly, callous, inhuman and outright wickedness.

According to her “For the past five years the wife of the State Governor Mrs. Obioma Liyel-Imoke, has been championing the stamping out of teenage pregnancy child abandonment in the state through her project; Mothers’ Against Child Abandonment (MACA).

“It is thus, disheartening that in spite of the consistent efforts by Mrs. Obioma Liyel-Imoke and the MACA team, people could still dump babies.”

She said the main goal of MACA was to prevent teenage pregnancy and child abandonment and to save lives and called on the public to avail themselves of the services MACA provides.

The MACA’s ultimate goal she said was to contribute to the achievement of Millennium Development Goals especially as it concerned Child and Maternal Mortality.

Besides, she stated that Mrs. Imoke initiated the Calabar Carnival Queen (CCQ), as the face of MACA for advocacy/sensitization visits to secondary schools in the state preaching abstinence from pre-marital sex and building their confidence.

The Executive Secretary of CUDA Gabriel Egari on his part promised to incident the case with the police as well as get clearance before his office could evacuate and bury the dead baby.

  • Very good.Thank you very much

  • HDP ISNT AMAZED OR SHOCKED AT THE DESPICABLE ABANDONMENT OFA NEW BORN BABY BY HER POOR MOTHER.THE POOR TEENAGER IS UNEDUCATED AND HAS WITHDRAWN FROM COLLEGE ON ACCOUNT OF HER PARENTS INABILITY TO PAY EXORBIANT SCHOOL FEES CHARGED BY CRSG.SHE MAY BE ORPHANED BY THE RAVAGING SCOURGE OF HIV/AIDS AFFLICTING OUR PEOPLE WORSENED BY A WORTHLESS,USELESS BUT DUBIOUS TOURISM DRIVE OF CRSG.SHE WAS AN INNOCENT VICTIM OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION BY SEX SEEKERS TAGGED TOURISTS BY CRSG. WE ASK DR NWADIARO TO SOBER REFLECT ON THE DELIBERATE POVERTY-INDUCING POLICIES OF CRSG, HER POLICES ARE BEST DESCRIBED AS WICKED,SATANIC,CALLOUS AND NOT THE CONSEQUENTIAL ACT OF A TEENAGE VICTIM. WE HAVE CONSISTENTLY OPPOSED THE USELESS,RICKETY TOURISM DRIVE OF CRSG INITIATED SINCE 2003 BECAUSE TOURISM WILL NEVER THRIVE IN A POVERTY-STRICKEN ENVIRONMENT LIKE CRS. SINCE THE NOISY TOURISM RAZZMATAZZ BEGAN, NO POTENTIAL TOURIST HAS VISITED CRS TO MAKE BENEFICIAL INVESTMENT,WHAT WE HAVE WITNESSED ARE SEX SEEKERS AND HOLIDAY MAKERS COMING TO EXPLOIT THE RAMPAGING POVERTY UNLEASHED ON THE PEOPLE ESPECIALLY JOBLESS POOR YOUTHS WHO BECOME OBJECTS OF SEXUAL SATISFACTION TO THESE HOLIDAY MAKERS LEAVING BEHIND STIS,STDS,HIV/AIDS AND DRUG USING STYLES. THERES NO TOURISM IN CRS,WHAT WE HAVE ARE DANCE, INDISCRIMINATE UNPROTECTED SEX, DRUG USE/ABUSE AND RAPE WITH DIRE SOCIAL, HEALTH AND SOCIOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES AS WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN CALABAR,THOUGH ITS QUITE COMMON TRACEABLE TO THE PURPOSELESS CRSG TOURISM DRIVE AND MOSTLY UNREPORTED. WE ASK DR NWADIARO TO PLEASE HOLD THE CRSG SHE SERVES ABSOLUTELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CALAMITOUS TRAGEDY BECAUSE THE GOVT HAS WOEFULLY FAILED TO ENACT POLICIES AND PROGRAMMES THAT WILL EMPOWER, ENGAGE AND EMPLOY OUR BURGEONING YOUTH POPULATION.THIS GOVT HAS CORNERED AND LOOTED MINDLESSLY THE RESOURCES OF THE STATE. THE ABANDONMENT OF THIS NEONATE IS CLEAR TESTIMONY OF GOVERNANCE FAILURE IN ALL RAMIFICATIONS. AND WE ASK WHERE IS CRS CAN? THEY HAVE SHAMELESSLY FAILED TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE AMORAL ACTS THAT HAVE TRANSFORMED OUR STATE TO BIBLICAL SODOM AND GOMORRAH. .WE CHALLENGE THE CRS CAN THAT WAS IN THE CAMPAIGN TRAIN OF THE RULING PARTY IN THE LAST ELECTIONS TO FIND A VOICE AND SPEAK OUT. CRS CAN HAS AGAIN ABANDONED HER CRITICAL MORAL ROLE AND SOCIETAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MONETARY BENEFITS, FILTHY LUCRE AND PATRONAGE. WHAT A SHAME. CRS CAN MUST TAKE A POSITION AGAINST EVIL. FOR US IN HDP,THERE WILL BE MORE ABANDONED BABIES, MORE CASES OF HIV/AIDS,STDS,CERVICAL CANCER,DRUG-INDUCED FATAL ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS, DEATHS,RAPE CASES AND OUR YOUTHS WILL BE INITIATED INTO MORE DANGEROUS DRUG HABITS, WHAT A FAKE, DECEITFUL, DUBIOUS AND FALLACIOUS TOURISM STATE INDEED.
