ACN faults Jonathan over comment on Bakassi ceding
Action Congress of Nigeria in Cross River State has warned the people of the state to be wary ofsupporting President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 election following his comment on the ceding of Bakassi.
The party was reacting to the President’s comment on why Nigeria refused to appeal the International Court of Justice ruling on the ceding of Bakassi peninsula.
The party, in a statement by its chairman, Mr. Hilliard Eta, said Jonathan’s comment was a display of “lackadaisical attitude” on issues affecting the people of the state.
It said, “We have read with consternation and anguish the recent statementcredited to President Gooddluck Jonathan regarding the criminal ceding of Bakassi peninsula to the Government of Cameroon.
“How would Jonathan assume any loss or gain to have appealed against an unpopular verdict, which did not only affect the land for which our forebears held in trust for their children and children’s children but also a people bound together by posterity and culture.
