Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq, An Astute Leader Of Modern Politics.
Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq an Astute charismatic politician, a seasoned legal guru with an amiable personality, a phenomenal reformist whose followership stature among Cross Riverians puts him as a leader to be admired, watched and associated with at all times.
The leadership quality of this resolute revolutionary and visionary democrat is reflected in the words of many outstanding great leaders, such as: Carl von Clausewitz, a Prussian General and military theorist, who stated: “If the leader is filled with high ambition and if he pursues his aims with audacity and strength of will, he will reach them, in spite of all obstacles.”
One of the greatest Presidents of the USA, George W. Bush: “Leadership, to me, means duty, honour and country. It means character, and it means listening from time to time.”
A leader is not worth anything if he or she does not represent the values of love, unity, peace and justice for his people. Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq is a well-brought-up youthful manager of men and resources, who has been prepared for leadership by the invaluable lessons he received from elders across the State for many years of his leadership journey.”
Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq whom I have known is a true reflection of what audacity, resoluteness, resourcefulness and creativity are all about no matter the field he decides to work upon or the odds.
I wish to say without fear of contradiction that Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq is a symbol of peace, a visionary, egalitarian and, most importantly, a great patriot whose love for his people is infectious. Here is a man who is reputed as a charming, charismatic and disciplined leader; creative and hard working, a broad-minded Cross Riverian with strategic insight.
He brings integrity, creativity, compassion, and intellectual dimension to bear in tackling tough political and administrative issues. He is truly a bridge-builder and a loyal patriot.
He boasts credible credentials in law, leadership/management,politics and a respected authority on corporate political strategy and private-public business in Nigeria.
This pride of Cross River State and one of the most articulated and educated political leaders from the State is an extraordinary and innovative legal guru which presence has resulted to the turn around in so many sectors of the state.
His performance as the Cross River State Director General of due process and price intelligence Bureau has resulted to many turn around in the state policies and development of Governor Ayade’s Vision.
He is an instrument of value to Cross River State and Nigeria as he has proved that he has the Midas touch that can change the fortunes of any organisation or assignment he gets himself involved. He is the pride of Cross River State and embodiment of the resoluteness spirit of Yala Land.
He started his public political life principally as a youth and a grass root mobilizer,an Activist,a community leader
where he (Eba) excelled, redefined and created most of the major historic political journey.
Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq has demonstrated a sterling leadership quality that is by today acknowledged by Cross Riverians and Nigerian leaders to warrant his elevation as the Cross River State PDP Chairman.He has proved that his appointment by Sir Benedict Ayade as the Director General of due process and price intelligence Bureau, was in order.
He has by this feat proved that the Yala spirit is in him, by positioning himself as one of the new revelations in the leadership circle in Cross River.
Eba from his early years in politics to date has remained focused and unwavering in his determination to provide service to Cross Riverians as a politician whether at the grass root level where he earned a reputation as a trusted and broad minded politician whose views were always respected or in his present position as D-G, Due Process where he brings in words and actions, integrity, panache, compassion and intellectual dimension to bear in tackling tough issues of the agency.
Eba has pursued his vision with audacity and strength of will to somersault all obstacles to become the next Cross River State PDP Chairman.
The Cross River PDP stakeholders captured the mood and minds of most Cross Riverians in their remarks about this enigma of a leader when they stated: “Eba’s endorsement is not only a personal honour and affirmation of confidence in his ability to lead, but also places Cross River politics in a pivotal position to rally other stakeholders in Nigeria with the International political family towards transparent political activities.”
As a tested and trusted reformist-minded administrator,a legal guru who has all it takes to reform and transform Cross River State PDP , Eba has proven that his endorsement was not misplaced.
Eba has been a most sought-after resource person in National politics: he was a major player at the 2015 and 2019 general election in Nigeria.
I have no doubt in my mind that he will excel on his new assignment as the Cross River State PDP Chairman when he finally mount the stage”
A non-violent-par excellence politician,Eba knows the worth of human blood and life. That is why he continued to preach peaceful process of elections , to all and sundry, in order to perpetuate and sustain the democratic experiment.
His words: “Election, could only make meaning when it is won without violence. I abhours violence; no victory in any election and, indeed, in any human endeavour in life, is worth the blood of man; no victory is worth the life of any human.”
“Dear Compatriots, recently our stakeholders, whom we all subscribe to their leadership made a decision of whom we should back for the office of the Cross River State PDP Chairman.
The fact remains that Eba is among few political leaders that has the the people at heart.
With all these facts and no matter the position of his critics, Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq is a symbol of unity, a visionary, egalitarian and, most importantly, a great patriot whose love for Cross River State and Yala people is infectious.
He is truly an amazing personality, an icon, an enigma, a study in resoluteness, benevolence, audacity, resourcefulness, creativity, one of the new faces of Nigerian politics and most importantly an emerging force in the Yala History.
As Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq becomes the Cross River State PDP Chairman, it is a perfect opportunity for him to widen his scope of experience and continue to spread his net of wisdom across board and do great things and aim even higher.
While sharing his vision with the media recently in his Abuja residence, Eba surmarised his mission as, “A servant who will steer the ship of the party with absolute humility with the objective of resolving all on – going disputes in the party occasioned from the alleged complaint ( sense of non belonging) in the last LGA primaries, unite all aggrieved party men and women, return all members who are out of the party and set a new platform to bring in more persons into the party.
Eba further stated that he will ensure a level playing field for all members to pursue their ambitions, and promote political growth where Hardwork, humility, Honesty and loyalty to the party will be rewarded.
He also promised to build a Strong Bridge between the Elders and the Young, men and women, the have and the have-nots, and above all a halcyon between National Assembly members and appointees / political structures at the state level.
Eba concluded that he will midwife a seemless transition of power at both the state and National level to ensure that the enviable place of pride which the PDP occupies in the state and which it once occupied at the National level is realised.
As he becomes the new Cross River State PDP Chairman in few days time, I wish this great man, a resolute revolutionary, exceptional visionary and democrat the best in all his future endeavours.
