No Sidon Look, a non governmental organization with the focus of getting citizen’s involved in governance says it will embark on an assessment tour of the 18 Local Government councils in Cross River State next week.
The founder, Portrait Peterson disclosed this on Friday in Calabar during a press conference where he said that the assessment tour was part of the organization’s activity record for 2021.
The tour will commence on Monday, May 10, 2021 with Calabar South, Calabar Municipal, Akpabuyo and Bakassi Local Government Areas in focus.
On Tuesday, May 11th, Odukpani, Akamkpa, Biase and Yakurr Local Government Areas will be toured while Obudu, Obanliku and Bekwarra Local Government Areas will be assessed on Wednesday, May 12th.
The tour will then shift to Ogoja, Yala and Boki Local Government Areas on Thursday, May 13th and will end on Friday, May 14th with a tour to Obubra, Etung, Ikom and Abi Local Government Areas.
Peterson dismissed any notion of a witch-hunt and urged the Council Chairmen to cooperate. According to him, the tour would be of physical projects of the current council bosses based on their campaign promises.
“I invited everyone (here) for the formal unveiling of the Cross River State Local Government Council’s projects assessment tour by the ‘No Sidon Look’ organization to inspect some projects embarked upon by our Local Government Council chairmen.
“No Chairman should take it personal or think that we are coming to witch-hunt him (or her), we are coming to ask you of the record of the projects you have executed in the last one year in office and the one you will continue to do even before you leave the office, therefore we solicit your cooperation,” Peterson said.
