The Chairman House Committee on Lands and New Cities Development and Member representing Calabar Municipal State Constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly, Hon. Efa Esua has described as criminals those persons from Akwa Ibom who are brewing crisis with Cross Riverians over land at the Oku-Iboku axis.

The member maintained that Cross River State has secured a Supreme Court Judgment establishing its ownership of the land but that those from the other end are “overzealous” and therefore causing the crisis.

According to him, “The other one is a national issue and that is why we have the National Boundaries Commission, once they come out with a boundary demarcation everyone abides by it. It is unfortunate that at Oku-Iboku we are having crisis with Akwa Ibom State.

“But we also know that there is a Supreme Court judgment that gave that land to Cross River but the Akwa Ibom people are just getting overzealous, and even when we tried to make peace when we had this last crisis, we had a member from the (Akwa Ibom state) House of Assembly saying that if we want to draft the Memorandum of Understanding we should not include the judgment”.

Adding that, “These guys are just overzealous, they are criminals but the one we have internally we are going to have the Land Use and Allocation Committee which His Excellency will inaugurate very soon and it will address all those aspects”.

The member spoke to our correspondent at the sideline of events during the visit of the Acting President while dissuading any opinions that the Governor or himself is moving to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC).
