President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed yet another Cross Riverian, Barrister Okoi Obono Obla as his Special Assistant on Prosecution.

In a letter signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Engineer Babachir David Lawal, and also sighted by CrossRiverWatch, Chief Obla was informed that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved his appointment as Special Assistant to the President (Prosecution), Federal Ministry of Justice with effect from 18th April 2016 on the Terms and Conditions of Service as contained in “Certain Political, Public and Judicial Office Holders (Salaries & Allowances, etc.) (Amendment)Act 2008.”

Obla’s appointment came along with that of other Specials Assistants that were also appointed by Mr. President including Alhaji Ahmadu Giade, Special Assistant to the President (Drugs and Narcotics), Federal Ministry of Justice and Mr Sylvester Imanhobe, Special Assistant to the President (Strategy/Research), Federal Ministry of Justice.

In a reaction to his appointment, Chief Obla told CrossRiverWatch that “I am humbled by my appointment and by the fact that the President considers me and my services worthy of serving this nation along with other Cross Riverians who have also been so appointed in sharp contrast to the dedication of Cross River state to the PDP for 16 years with practically little or nothing to show for it.

Asked what was in the appointment for Cross River State, Obla said: “I will definitely use my contacts and network within our party, the APC and the Presidency to mobilize resources and projects that will be to the benefit of the state and see to it that many get empowered and uplifted by my position.”

Chief Obla, a University of Jos Law graduate has been an ardent follower of President Buhari since the days of Congress for Progressive Change, CPC and is also a one time governorship candidate of the party in the state and has held several positions within the party.
