A group of youths from Ikom 1 State Constituency have registered their protest against their representative in the State House of Assembly, Hon Agbiji Mbeh Agbiji over what the group described as poor representation and high handedness of the legislator.

The youths numbering over hundred under the Name ‘Olulumo for Ikom’ displayed their protest placard at the headquarters of Ikom Local government Council venue of the inauguration of the Central Senatorial district Caucus Leaders, calling on their Party, PDP to save them from what they called Hon Agbiji’s unproductive representation.

Speaking with CrossRiverWatch, Leader of the youths, Ferdinand Koli said the re-election of Hon Agbiji Mbeh back to the State House of Assembly in 2011 was as a result of the intervention of the State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke who through his representative called the youth leaders together that he would like the member to be re-elected back to the house through their support.

“But for the intervention of the State governor, Senator Liyel Imoke, Hon Agbiji wouldn’t have been re-elected back to the State House of Assembly.

“I challenge him (Agbiji) to render account of his stewardship since he has been in the State House of Assembly since 2007 representing Ikom 1 State constituency. He arrogates power to himself and feel too important than others even when he is confronted with issues affecting his constituency.

“That is not the type of representative we want from Ikom 1 State constituency from 2015 going forward. We don’t need a high handed representative, we don’t need a representative that will facilitate the imprisonment of 9 members of our community in Okuni, instead of him to use his office to solve their problems. Honestly we don’t need him anymore and as time move ahead, we will call him to account for his stewardship as our representative in the State House of Assembly and if he fails to do that, we will move for his replacement.” Koli said.

Efforts to get reactions from Hon Agbiji were not successful as repeated calls to his phone number were unsuccessful.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if
    all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
