Honorable Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe, Member representing Ogoja/Yala Federal Constituency has challenged his opponents to stop grumbling and meet him in the field.

There has been a ground swell of protests against the decision of the PDP National Working Committee NWC, that incumbent members of the National Assembly to get automatic tickets to return.

Some of the new entrants who have or are planning to purchase the Party’s expensive nomination forms are complaining and protesting that the decision of the NWC has effectively shut them out.

But Hon. Jarigbe took to his Facebook timeline yesterday to denounce those who are complaining.

He wrote: “I worked for the Party (PDP) and other People for 16 years without an office (elective or appointive). People who have benefited so much from PDP are the ones protesting, when it doesnt favor them today. We all know where we all were before 1999. Some of us came to Govt without a bicycle. Who are we deceiving? My take is that everyone should go to the field. Some of us protesting are even more favored as it concerns the Statutory Delegates. My sympathy is with those who have never benefited and they are very few. I know that one day, it will be their own turn to serve and enjoy the much exaggerated benefits. Some of (sic) u are benefiting from CRS Govt but you forget that some of us worked even more than you but the Gov’s magnanimity got u appointed. Enuf of the insults! Lets all go to the field. Nobody owns CRS.”

Jarigbe is generally very respected and loved among his constituents.

He is the only aspirant in the run up to the 2019 election who enjoys the open support of even members of the opposition party in the State.
