Cross River Monarch says Obasanjo Caused the suffering of Bakassi People

The Paramount Ruler of Bakassi and Chairman of Cross River Traditional Rulers Council, Etiyin Etim Edet has announced that former president Olusegun Obasanjo was the one who gave Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon without making plans for the proper resettlement of the people which has made the people suffer for 13 years after handover.

Etim Edet stated this on Tuesday in Calabar on the delay in the implementation of the 2013 report of the Presidential Committee on the Plight of the Displaced Bakassi people.
He said “Obasanjo, who is the main actor in the ceding of Bakassi, is still alive. He made a lot of promises to us prior to the ceding and we thought that he would fulfill them but he did not.
He met with us severally at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, and he spoke to us passionately as a father of the nation which gave us the assurance that the government would do something reasonable for people of Bakassi but up till now, we have seen nothing.

The traditional ruler said “Former President Obasanjo must be regretting what he did to the people of Bakassi and since he is still politically active, h should redeem his promises to the people.”
