Some past leaders of Cross River State may be in trouble, as the incumbent government led by Ben Ayade makes public its readiness to probe their administration’s financial dealings and other matters relating to stocks or its proceeds.
According to the Attorney General of the State, Barr Joe Abang, the past leaders of the state were engaged in shady dealing and so, in possession of unaccounted investments.
The Commissioner for Justice made this comment at the opening session of the three-day public enlighten workshop for state, federal and appeal court judges, legal practitioners and interested investors in Cross River and Akwa Ibom States, earlier this week, in Calabar.
The Attorney General also affirmed the incumbent government’s commitment to work with the Investments and Securities Tribunal until transparency was achieved in the state.
Reacting to the development, the Chairman Investments and Securities Tribunal, Isaiah Idoko-Akoh said the workshop was aimed at reawakening the interest of the public, to invest and enjoy the protections available for Investors in the capital market and transparency by government agencies.
