The Obong Of Calabar and the grand patriarch of Efik Eburutu Kingdom, His Eminence, Edidem Ekpo Okon Abasi Otu the fifth has expressed his dissatisfaction with the federal government and its agencies over non implementation of policies and policy somersaults.

Speaking as a guest at the four days Industrial Training Fund, ITF biennial training in Tinapa Calabar, the royal father said many good policies of the federal government have been somersaulted as a result of tribalism, unnecessary politics and selfish interest.

The monarch said the only way to rapid development in Nigeria is to give merit a priority.

He bemoaned a situation where Calabar Port is not working and Lagos Port is overcrowded stressing that the founding fathers that created the port had vision on even development and accessibility, stressing that corruption in high places has taken over.

He thanked the organizers of the event for taking it to Calabar while urging them to go beyond paper work to practical realities.

“Looking at the scenario, I am impressed with the program and I want to thank the organizers of this event for bringing it to my domain.
“As traditional rulers we feel the impulse more and bear the burden.

“Implementation of policies has always been a problem, we need to go back to the drawing board and look at what can be done.

“I have to be frank and say the truth as a Traditional Ruler, the youth are all over the place without employment because the available jobs have been shared by the politicians to their cronies and not on merit.

“The cabals have taken over the government in the corridors of power. NPA, Paper Mill in Akwa Ibom are amongst the sector the needed to be looked into because it will create direct employment to the youths.

“If Nigeria wants to be amongst the 20 developed nations of the world, all hands must be on deck as individuals, group and government to have a better tomorrow for our children and children children”, he said.
