Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq His Many Paths, His Politics.
It is always better for us to get close to know somebody before jumping into conclusion about his personality.The Cross River State Director General of Due Process and Price Intelligence Bureau, Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq,is a perfect gentleman.
He is the type of Cross Riverian that will want to continue to serve humanity because he only sees things for the good of his people.
The man,Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq is like an elephant explored by nine blind men.You appreciate him from the point of his personae that you have experienced or explored.
To his teachers;former Class Mates,to those who have listened to him present his many public lectures,he is an intellectual.
To those accustomed to the arrogance that goes with power in Nigerian Politics,Eba is humility personified,besides being intelligent,Eba had maintained an uncommon humility despite his achievements.
To especially the beneficiaries of his youth empowerment scheme, widow outreach and empowerment programmes, etc, he is one man who has an overflowing milk of human kindness.
Those aware of his charity and empowerment outreaches were therefore not surprised when the Cross River State PDP stakeholders endorsed him to lead the party.It was like the story of Tabitha in the Bible. The widows, orphans, and poor, practically compelled Peter to bring Tabitha back to life because her death would spell doom for the countless less-privileged, whom she fed and clothed.
Meanwhile, to those who have followed his leadership odyssey, he is a leadee per excellence.
Endorsing Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq for Cross River State PDP Chairmanship Position, he is like an old broom that knows every corner of the house and has brought this wealth of experience in governance and public service in particular to bear in his service to the state.
To the people of Yala Nation and Cross River in general and Northern Senatorial District in particular, Eba is quality representation personified.His role in bringing to fruition a purposeful public service to play in Cross River State is a testimony of efficiency,such is the transformational touch of Eba phenomenon.
Okadigbo, as some prefer to call him for his dogged, unwavering,eloguent,rich intellectual capital and command of English during his days of students unionism almost two decades ago and which has remained his identity till this moment of his splendid outing in the Ayade’s Administration. outing in Ayade’s Administration as the Cross River State Director General of Due Process and Price Intelligence Bureau, brought the office to the consciousness of the people of the State. He traversed the lengths and breaths of the State, meeting Stakeholders, building partnerships and vigorously canvassing the enhancement of public service. Today,Cross River State Due Process and Price Intelligence Bureau has transformed from a mere talk office to a point of reference because Eba is in charge.
Even more endearing is that in an environment of do-or-die politics, Eba represents hope that politics of common good, principle, and without bitterness is possible in our clime.
For instance, many expected his mission to lead the Cross River State people’s Democratic party to go up in flames, but the Eba factor is politics of wits, not one of guns, bows, and arrow.
Two issues particularly raised the political temperature. One was the false story that Eba attacked an aspirant during the party screening.The other was the decision of some media bugs to, therefore,use social media to attack him daily.
However, in one of our conversations the DG made three statements that earned him our respect the more. And they underline his political philosophies. One, he said it was going to be a battle of wits, not gunshots.
Two, he said that no matter how we tried, if God is not in the picture, there is nothing we can do about it. At the same time, if God decided otherwise, then nobody would be able to stop him. Three, he said that the Okadigbo political family would nevertheless make the necessary sacrifices to ensure that the Cross River PDP remain United.
To underscore his firm belief that power comes from above, he kick-started his mission with visits to major prayer houses in the state to seek the face of God. Those who are following events as they unfold would readily agree that the events are nothing short of miracles.The rest is history.
Indeed, besides special grace, Eba’s kind of heart is one reason Heavens always intervene and wrought for him political feats, which his mission to lead our great Party the people’s Democratic party (PDP) against all odds will stand.
Importantly, Eba’s brand of politics is one driven by the interest of his people and loyalty to constituted authorities,his interest underlines his continued clamaour for transparent leadership, genuinely convinced that it is the surest route to a united and prosperous Society.
Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq is not a threat to anybody,he does not discriminate against any religion. He is not tribalistic. He is a perfect gentleman who has a heart to serve.
Congratulations in advance to our master, brother, mentor, kindhearted leader, and the calm river that wears off the mighty rock.
