Give us electricity, road, water in Obiobom Village or forget about second term- community tell council helmsman.

…seek for Government interventional projects.
By Divine Sam:-

Obiobom Village in Abak LGA Akwa Ibom state has finally come out with a resolution against giving out their total support to a Government that will not have the interest of the Obiobom village at heart.
They also resolved that any Government from the state to the local government level that is not ready to work with the people of the community by appointing a son and daughter of the area into the administration will never have their support.
The decision is already taking effect beginning from the sitting administration at the local government council lead by Barr. Imo Williams who is perceived to have eye and ambition for a second term in office, unfortunately, the said second term is already running on wheels of difficulties following the drastic stand of Obiobom village sending him signals which signifies that they will never give the council HELMSMAN their support for another term unless he meets up with their conditions and demands of providing electricity, gradation of the community bad roads and facilitates the water projects.
One of the indigenes of the area Mr Itoro Ekong noted with grievances that all the villages in Abak Urban 1v has gotten electricity and benefited from Government interventional projects except Obiobom Village.
He regretted that even when the community has been fully participating in election and casting their votes to Government candidates, it is surprising the decision of the Government not to site any single project in the village. The community has been left out without a single project.
He said indigenes from Obiobom village has been appointed to work in the council or been any exco of the ward in the party, “we are not just recognized, no political appointment, no elected position, nothing in everything simply because Obiobom is not civilised.
Obiobom people voted the incumbent chairman Barr Imo Williams and gave him their maximum supports but whenever we go to him for help concerning the light issue, “he gave us deaf ears and sometimes failed to give us listening ears”
He said presently “there is No light, No water, No Primary School, No Market that is, we are just left out completely”. nobody to speak for us even in the recent ward Congress of the party which elected new excos from the ward there is nobody from obiobom, is as if we are not part of the local government area.
He said meanwhile there are schools in other villages in the ward, there is Primary School in Abak Itenge,
Primary and secondary school in Ikot Ekang, some villages the Government has built them village town halls.
He said the leaders of the ward are showing less concerned when it comes to Obiobom matter.
Mr Ekong noted that the only time you see politicians comes to Obiobom is during political season because they understand coming to canvas for votes and when we give them they ran away with our votes. He sighted instances like the present Executive Chairman Barr. Imo Williams who he described as a disappointment to the people of the area, Obiobom village has not benefited anything from him even when we go to him begging him to provide us with electricity till date he has not given us a positive response, we are still leaving in the dark without electricity. We know he will come again and we are too have prepared to wait the day he will come.
