Former two term federal legislator, Honorable Paul Adah has decried the tearing down of Obudu local government area of northern Cross River State where he and the incumbent Governor Ben Ayade hail from.
Mr. Adah who declared his intention to run for the Gubernatorial position in the 2019 general elections on the platform of the All Progressives Congress disclosed this in a short statement to CrossRiverWatch after he took his consultation and campaign to Obudu where he lampooned the failure of the Ayade’s administration to complete a single project.
“I decried the absence of prosperity which Ayade promised,” said Mr. Adah who served as the member representing Obudu/Obanliku/Bekwarra federal constituency in the House of Representatives.
He decried the “massive destruction of Obudu in the name of construction,” and alleged that there is: “No single completed project even in Obudu.”
The former Commissioner representing Cross River State on the Board of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, also condemned the demolition of the local government guest house.
Images obtained by CrossRiverWatch reveal that part of the Government Guest House which is located along the Ranch road in Obudu opposite the 3 Megwatts power plant built by the Ayade’s administration, has been demolished and stripped with the perimeter fence totally demolished.
Our correspondent reports that those working there claimed they were contracted by the State Government with no signpost with project details.
