The former Cross River State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Barrister Mike Igini has been said to have misunderstood the position of the State in respect to Law No. 7 of the Cross River State House of Assembly.
The accusation was made by Hon. Joe Etene, former Cross River Assembly member representing Bakassi while speaking as a guest in a weekly socio-political radio program, “The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo” on Hit 95.9 Fm Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
Barr. Etene stated that the whole INEC and Bakassi face-off would have been unnecessary if the former Cross River INEC REC had not made the mistake of comparing the border adjustment as done in Law No. 7 with Lagos State’s attempt at creating new local governments under the Tinubu administration.
Barr. Etene reiterated that the supreme court judgment is final and binding on all the parties.
