The Special Adviser on Petroleum to Cross River Governor, Ben Ayade, Bonny Ishamali has tongue lashed a one time National Publicity Secretary of the PDP and currently APC Chieftain, Venatius Ikem for suggesting there is “motion and no movement” in Ayade’s administration.

Bonny stated this, Monday in Calabar while reacting to a recent publication by CrossRiverWatch where Venatius Ikem disclosed why he was still in hiding despite his arrest warrant been vacated as well as baring his mind on the happenings in Cross River State.

Bonny told CrossRiverWatch that “Vena has nothing to contribute to our society, with his height of irresponsibility; he has proven he has nothing to offer to the state. Politically, Vena Ikem is finished. Politics is generational, this is not the time of Vena Ikem, let him advise himself.”

“Vena has nothing to be afraid of because he is inconsequential”, Bonny said in his reaction to Vena’s statement that he had to be cautious after the attack on his house, adding that “He is busy telling people that the governor is after him been the reason why he is still in hiding, the governor, Senator Professor Ben Ayade has no problem with Venatius Ikem, it is the police and I that Vena has problems with.

“He is running because there is a criminal charge against him. He should not point fingers at anybody, nobody is after his family either. Vena is only trying to garner sympathy and is resorting to cheap blackmail. The governor is a peacemaker and has not derailed from his political slogan ‘politics with ethics’.”

On the allegation that there needs to be a rethink of the processes involved in the reported influx of investors into the state where Vena had said “there is so much motion but no movement”, Bonny expressed angst against the statement stressing that, “The governor has made effort to bring investors into the state, currently there are lots of them working and more are yet to come.”

Furthermore, he debunked the claim that the governor rode on financial might to power. “The governor did not get into office with money, he is a man that is loved by his people. Vena should not forget His Excellency Ben Ayade has enlarged the cabinet to accommodate others and he is the first governor to have reduced his salary and this is because of the love he has for his people.”
