As reactions continue to trail the Cross River State 2019 budget christened “Qabalistic Densification”, the Executive Secretary of Budget, Transparency and Accountability Network, Kingsley Eworo, has described the budget as “a joke”.

Mr. Eworo featured as a guest on Hit95.9 FM interactive regular Sunday program “The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo”, where he posited that Cross Riverians are very enlightened and too intelligent to hide the budget from.

“It is cabalist, that been said, I need to say that the budget of Cross River State government to an extent is a joke. This is because, a lot of what you see here is just to make it look good and beautiful but then again, in real and practical terms it is difficult to say this is a budget that has passed through a scale term.

“For goodness sake, Cross Riverians are very enlightened people, educated and who are interested in the making of the State better. When I see these things it makes Cross River a joke.”

He urged Cross Riverians not to let the unseriousness of government cause them to loose hope saying, “There is plenty of hope, let’s continue engaging on every platform that we can as much as possible. The budget should also be decabalized. By this I mean we can have the citizen’s budget that will break down these terms so that every other person can understand; I think that way we can make progress.” He ended

Media practitioner and publisher of NegroidHaven, Efio Ita Nyok in his own contribution posited that, “As a Cross Riverian it makes me feel very unfortunate but in a very sarcastic mood, the budget was labeled to be cabalistic and the last time I checked my dictionary; cabalistic means spiritual. The budget is stereotype; it is a spiritual document, we can never see it nor did we see it when it was assented to.”
