The Cross River State Central Senatorial candidate for the Young Progressives Party (YPP) during the just concluded 2019 general election, Mr. Anthony Bissong Attah has accused Leader of the House of Assembly, Honorable Peter Odinga of fueling Governor Ayade’s privatization desire.
Comrade Bissong made this known recently in an article posted on his Facebook wall, which he titled “Fueling Ayade’s Desire Part 1.”
The article reads in full; “I hold the opinion that there is a huge connecting link between House Leader Peter Odinga’s privatization motion and Governor Benedict Ayade’s secret desires (I may be wrong, though). But that’s a discussion for another day.
“I am worried that if the Hallowed Chambers of the State House of Assembly can allege as part of their oversight function that Garment Factory, the most celebrated industrial stride of this administration is now redundant, underperforming, moribund and a huge financial burden to the State, what’s the gain in continuing with other industrial ventures like CalaChika, CalaPharm, CalVegas, Indomie factory, Toothpick factory, Cocoa processing industry and other designated ‘Calas’?
“Rather than building to privatise, why not kukuma forget about using money we don’t even have to build what we don’t even need only to sell to whom we don’t even know?
“And if these less expensive infrastructure has caused the State so much already, then how can a project like the superhighway be funded and what are the chances that such a gigantic project would not end up the way of other industrial ventures?,” he concludes.
