A group, the National Anti-Corruption Crusaders, says it will on August 28, 2015, stage a protest march in Calabar, Cross River State, to push for the arrest and prosecution of former governor, Liyel Imoke and several others for their role in what the group describes as “the diversion of public funds, belonging to Cross River State”.
Prince Ekanem, Director-General of the group, informed www.calitown.com that the protest march will begin from the Watt Market, through Calabar road and terminate at the Governor’s Office, Calabar, where the group plans to submit a written petition to the Gov. Ben Ayade. Ekanem particularly insists “it is painful that Imoke bought an aircraft that we still have not sited in this state. We will push for the arrest and prosecution of Liyel Imoke so that the public will know that it is no longer business as usual”.
He further adds that the group will mobilize Cross Riverians from far and wide for the march so that it will register in the minds of present leaders and those who aspire to lead the state in the future that the people are awake to the basic demand of good and transparent leadership.
