The Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly, Honorable John Lebo (PDP Abi) has for the second time in 20 months claimed that owning a website is becoming an “outdated” trend in information dissemination.

Mr. Lebo stated this during an exclusive interview with CrossRiverWatch’s Margaret John and Efa Sunday on Wednesday where he also said the eight Assembly has a website.

“I have had to deal with this issue before. The website is a static information dissemination system that has obviously becoming outdated, that is my opinion about that matter,” Lebo said.

He continued: “The Cross River State Government has a website and the judiciary has a website and the house of Assembly has a website and even votes and proceedings that are passed by the house are being published there.”

It will be recalled that in August 2017, Mr. Lebo had during the ‘Dialogue With Agba Jalingo’ town hall meeting held in Calabar made the same claim.

When asked how Cross Riverians can get information about the activities of the Assembly, he said that: “When I became Speaker, one of the things I did was to create a Twitter handle for the House of Assembly with a database. We are available on Facebook, we are available on Google. To open a website in 2017 is reverse engineering. If you go to Google and type the Cross River State House of Assembly you will see the number of bills that will come out.”

He added that: “Now people say how will you get information? We have created an information desk available in the office of the Clerk.”

However, Mr. Lebo told encouraged the public to visit the social media handles of the Cross River State House if Assembly to get the information they need and also relate with their representatives about the proceedings of the house.
