The Member Representing Ogoja State Constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. Peter Odey has described gangstarism as “old school” and urged students of Ogoja extraction to desist from it as he is not aware of anyone that it has helped.

Hon. Odey stated that “It was those days people boost to be cultists expecting girls to throng around them, but now when anyone is said to be a cultist people run away from that person”.

Hon. Odey stated this when members of the National Association of Ogoja Students, CRUTECH Chapter presented him with an award of honor in his office at the Assembly complex.

The member, who regretted the death of a student from Ogoja in the recent gang clashes in Calabar, said it is pitiable that people whose parents are toiling to send them to school will engage in such and in the process lose their lives.

Hon. Odey promised the students that he will rework the bursary program to properly accommodate more students and do away with the mistakes experienced from the last exercise.

He said  the bursary program was his small contribution to the people of Ogoja as it is capable of taking a burden off a particular family at that point in time.

Earlier speaking, the President National Association of Ogoja Students, CRUTECH Chapter Comrade Mommang Joseph said they found Hon. Odey worthy of the award because of his tremendous contributions to the growth of Ogoja in general and his support to students in particular.
