Mr. Daniel Obo, former Director General of the Cross River State Recreational Park Agency, who resigned about a year ago based on his commitment to Senator John Owan Eno following his defection from PDP to APC, has confirmed that he has fallen out with the Senator representing the Central Senatorial District of the State.

Obo made the confirmation when fielding questions from newsmen at the end of a meet and talk session of Crowd Poll, a crowd funding organization in Transcorp Hotels Calabar.

According to him, the fall out is because he has come to realize that the Senator doesn’t have the interest of his community (Obubra) at heart.

His words: “We had to disagree and we disagreed because when we got to the party (APC) congress there is this Chapter Chairman of ours in all fairness to him who has decided to give us support and so we were rooted that he was going to return as Chapter Chairman and so in the course of trying to return him, the Elders had their own candidate and we went to the Senator and say you have to support our (Obubra) right, you (Senator Owan Eno) got into power very young, you cannot continue to support people against our land.

“For 20 years this people have bargained for Obubra after the demise of Chief John Okpa and for 20 years we have bad roads, for 20 years we have the worst hospitals. I give you an instance, Yakurr was under Obubra Yakurr is an Area Command, Ikom also is an equivalent and it’s an Area Command.

“That Division my mother gave birth to me to meet in Obubra is still the Area Division. If you go to our Council everything is down. So what we are saying is that these guys who went to the market to bargain for us in 20 years; we don’t have proper roads and good hospitals and hotels; as I speak with you, in the whole of Cross River State, it is only an Obubra man that does not have hotel.” He said.

Adding that, “If you do your assessment you will discover that every Local Government has one hotel or the other and of course this hotels were built after 1999, what that means is that the proceeds of building those hotels were not proceeds from farming, they were proceeds from the political economy which our Local Government has been deprived and so we won’t follow them anymore.

“So going to put financial strength in those people who have bargained for 20 years, I had to back out. Before I got into that appointment the accord was that I will have to leave Owan which I did not accept. So having gotten the appointment and he was leaving, the only way I can show him I did not accept that offer is to let go.

“Let me tell you, in fairness to him, for twelve years he governed us without leadership, the twelve years he sat as member Federal House of Representatives Obubra/Etung without leadership because everything rises and fall with leadership. If we had a rallying point in twelve years, the challenges about competent leadership we have today, we won’t have it.”

Furthermore he said, “You cannot come and tell me Dan Obo that you cannot support Mr. A because he is not supporting Owan’s ambition, I’m not going to support Mr. B because he is not supporting Usani’s ambition, don’t we have people with ambition in our Local Government? What I want to hear is that I will not support this chapter Chairman because he won’t support this Obubra man make we grow, not an outsider because there is no Obubra man who has gone to their LGA to install a chapter Chairman of a party.

“So my fall out with him today is based on the fact that he gave money to the elders against the younger generation, that means he doesn’t have respect for the younger generation.”

He concluded by maintaining that individual political ambition is not worth his support if his people are marginalized.

    DG Dan Obo, you disappoint me by all this untrue negatives against the much talked about Senator John Enoh. I had always been interested in what concerns you but I am disappointed evil communications have corrupted your good manners.
    If Senator Owan Enoh whom we all know not by distance but by close range and practice dose not have respect for the youths, who else has? I have a political outlook today because Owan Enoh trusted in the quality and content of my character.
    Maybe you are not wise enough to see that sen Enoh was grooming you for something. I was lucky to meet you at a hangout in ikom where I felt glad seeing my term player you told me yours stories and you wife also by the spirit called to advice you of what negative impressions your antagonising or seeming antagonising your real political boss (John Enoh) is telling on her as an amebor she heard in school stipulates thereby advising you to make your way straight with your boss as she did not want u to be seen as an unstable personality.
    Owan Enoh’s personal PA Mr Maurice Ikora is a youth.
    I Osonabiji s.Ojong Owan Enoh’s SA on new media, I am a youth
    Justin Obongha from Obubra is a youth chieftain He is Owan Enoh’s aide on social media. My little boy I watched grow up Michael Ogar Gabriel Jr is a youth from Yala local govt.
    As a youth you confided in me that the senator sponsored your marriage with a million naira! You did not get that as an adult.
    You got nominated for DG by sen Enoh you resigned because of the fact that you never wanted to be amongst people who spoke against your boss. Mr Dan that was integrity. Let me not talk much I was proud of u and u know it most especially when you refused a huge offer to deny your boss, you said u rejected it, or have u known gone back to Judah your boss? Hence this press briefing. I admired your guts but you lost it today. Thanks
