The Community policing partners for Justice, Security and Democratic Reformations (COMPART) has joined other human rights organizations to call on the Akwa Ibom State Government to make the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the State a moment to give Justice to the dead at the Reigners Bible Church on 10th December, 2016.
The Executive Director of COMPART, Mr. Saviour Akpan told The Sensor that the human rights community in the State is unsatisfied with the level of human rights protection in the state particularly the secrecy with which government is run.
According to him, it is unimaginable that after Akwa Ibom citizens lost their lives in the collapsed Church, Justice has not been done.
“I challenge Governor Udom Emmanuel to make public the report of the collapsed Church building and government’s decisions. We want to know what happened, those to be prosecuted and what is being done to avoid a similar incidence in future” he stated.
According to Akpan, the culture of sycophancy has been entrenched in the system, so that the people now see it as the only means to get their needs today and mortgage their future, noting that any state which leaders determine to hold its people in perpetual bondage using small carrots can never develop.
