Activities to mark the 2nd Year Anniversary of CrossRiverWatch are in top gear just as organizers say this year’s anniversary will be marked with a lecture themed: Bakassi: Footprints of Democracy Without A Human Face.”

Chairman of the occasion, Senator Bassey Ewa Henshaw, who is also the Chairman of the Board of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC and the Guest Lecturer for this year’s lecture, Professor Akin Oyebode, Professor of International Law and Jurisprudence at the University of Lagos, have both been confirmed to attend the event.

This year’s event scheduled to hold on August 27, 2014 at the prestigious Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Calabar is expected to bring stakeholders together to continue the discourse on the unfortunate fate that has been foisted on the Bakassi people of Cross River State by the whims of international politics.

Deputy Managing Director of CRWATCH RESOURCES, Publishers of CrossRiverWatch and Chairman of the Anniversary Planning Committee, Mr. Charlie Ofem told our reporter that: “We are quite delighted about the confirmation of these two very important personalities to attend the event.

“Professor Oyebode is a very renowned scholar of international law who has been consistent in his agitation for the Bakassi people both at home and international fora. He will be an invaluable lecturer to listen to that day. Senator Henshaw was the person representing Bakassi when the territory was eventually ceded. They both will be taking us on the journey so far and we implore the general public to join us in solidarity with the Bakassi people to continue the advocacy.”
