The Senator representing Cross River State central senatorial district in the red chambers of the National Assembly, John Owan-Enoh has said there is no rift to between him and Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade.
Senator Enoh stated this while addressing attendees at the 3rd ‘Cross River Central Youths Meet Senator John Owan-Enoh’ where he also announced that he will next week release the sum of NGN2million to fund the start up of two portals.
The events saw thousands of youths from across the 6 LGAs that make up the senatorial district and Calabar thronging the event hall at Jorany Hotel Ikom.
Enoh said that contrary to opinions of third parties that he is currently not in terms with Governor Ayade, he has no problems with him.
“People say me and the governor are having issues. That is because they do not understand how these things work. Let me inform you here today that me and Governor Ayade do not have any problem. We were both elected to do our work. He was elected governor and you people elected me Senator. There is no point of connection where we should have any issues.”
The Etung born politician also announced his support for two programs proposed by CrossRiverWatch founder, Agba Jalingo and promised he will make available NGN2million to fund them.
Agba, a guest speaker at the event had called on Senator Enoh to further demonstrate his commitment to empower his people with IT by supporting the creation of a portal where foodstuffs produced in the central senatorial district are sold to the world www.foodstuffs.com and another portal www.breakfastandlunchincalabar.com which will serve breakfast and lunch to residents in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
Owan agreed to these and promised to make NGN2million available next week. He said this fits into his resolve to empower youths in central Cross River State to compete favorably with their counterparts across the world.
The Senator also announced that he has already engaged experts who will do follow up IT training for one delegate per the 66 political wards in Cross River Central Senatorial District and further disclosed that he has purchased 66 customized laptops that will be handed to the 66 after their training to begin their web-preneurship.
