  • There is the problem. Lawmakers are supposed to live on their salaries and allowances. The job of emancipation of the masses is supposed to be via government programs that are planned and implemented by government agencies. By paying the legislators outrageous salaries and allowances for them to buy votes through various so-called empowerment programs is wrong. Wake up Nigerians and Cross Riverians!

  • I KNOW NO ONE WOULD DO IT BETTER THAN HER IN CROSS RIVER NORTH. SHE HAS ALWAYS BEING A SOURCE OF HOPE TO THE HOPELESS SO WHY NOT WE GIVE HER THE CHANCE TO GO FOR SENATE FOR US. AND HOW ABOUT THIS COMBINATION, BERNARD AYADE AS GOVERNOR, DR ROSE OKOJI OKO FOR SENATE,ALPHONSUS OGAR EBA FOR HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY YALA ONE CONSTITUENCY.
