The Cross River State Youth Leader of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Nathaniel Effiom Otu has decried the rising poverty rate in the state.

Comrade Otu, while addressing a delegation of APC youths from across the state who paid him a solidarity visit in Calabar, during the week observed that the poverty rate in Cross River state has reached an all time high. He lamented the lack of development and berated the PDP administration for being bereft of vision for the advancement of the state.

In his words, “our state has been plunged into the chasm of utter backwardness by the clueless Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) led government of the state since 1999”.

He also lamented the lack of economic activities which has resulted in massive youth unemployment. He said, “with the enormous resources that have accrued to the state government since 1999, Cross River would have ranked among the most developed states in the country if the respective governors knew what leadership actually meant.”

Comrade Otu also called on youths of the state to discard the practice of groveling at the feet of politicians for pittance. He advised them to hold politicians accountable for what they do with the offices they hold in public trust and not to allow themselves to be used as thugs to foment violence at elections.

He further noted that APC is the only party poised to make sweeping positive changes and reforms in Cross River state and Nigeria at large and ended by urging all youths, irrespective of their political affiliations, to support APC candidates in the coming general elections as, according to him “the momentum of change begins with the youths”.
