Emmanuel Ogbeche, the spokesperson for Governor Bassey Otu, has disclosed that under the previous administration led by Ben Ayade, official approvals were granted through WhatsApp messages.

During a meeting with the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Cross River State Council, held in Calabar, Ogbeche expressed his criticism of the state’s deteriorated condition, referring to it as “badly rundown,” which Governor Otu’s administration has inherited.

Ogbeche emphasized the importance of collective support and collaboration to restore order in the state.

Nevertheless, he expressed confidence in Governor Otu’s ability to effect positive change, stating, “Otu inherited a rundown state.

There is no record of anything; approvals were given on WhatsApp messages. It will require a lot to turn the state around, and thank God we have a capable and attentive governor ready to provide the needed leadership.”

News About Nigeria reports that Ogbeche sought the support of the NUJ for Governor Otu and assured the union that the governor would reciprocate their assistance.

He pledged his unwavering commitment to justifying the governor’s trust in him, saying, “This is a job I never lobbied for or contacted anyone to secure.

The job found me with God’s grace, and I am ready to do everything to justify that confidence reposed in me by the governor.

As a member of the union and the immediate past chairman of Abuja council, I will ensure a strong relationship between the governor and the media practitioners in the state.”

Nsa Gill, the Chairperson of the NUJ in Cross River State, congratulated Ogbeche on his appointment and assured him of the union’s support in his new role.

Gill pledged that union members would work diligently to ensure Ogbeche’s success in his endeavours.
