As Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe, the senator representing the North of Cross River State in Nigeria’s Senate marked one month since he was sworn in after a long drawn legal battle with Stephen Odey, that went to the Supreme Court, the senator has this afternoon, on his verified Facebook wall, expressed surprise that his opponents were still angry at the Supreme Court verdict that pronounced him senator.
Jarigbe wrote: “To my opponents, I thought we were done with the struggle but you are still so bitter and your media boys have gone gaga, dragging us in to the murky waters of character assassination.”
He goes on to state that, “…no one has monopoly of acting in an untoward manner or being mischievous. Let us move on and prepare to meet in the field, in 2023, by the grace of God. I am your Senator and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.”
“We should remember that, we will not be in Government House forever or enjoy immunity forever. The day of reckoning will come and we will all be faced with the realities of life. Retributive Justice is real.”
“May God see us through the trying times as we grapple with the experience of a “phenomenon” in the governance of Cross River State. My promise to the good People of Cross River North, across party lines, is that the narrative must change, for good, as I am poised to do my best, by His grace. May God bless you all” he concluded. There was no response, at press time from his opponents.
