Uyo — A senator from Akwa Ibom State, Senator Ita Solomon Enang, yesterday said the senate has not commenced discussing the Bakassi issue because it has not received any formal presentation of the situation from the territory.
Enang told newsmen in Uyo that he was still gathering papers on the matter and discussing with the best lawyers.
“We are considering what to do. I have some papers and I am working with one of our brightest lawyers, a counsel and solicitor in the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Justice. We are working together to strategize and perfect our papers.
“But after getting all the inputs I will have to approach the state government and Secretary to the State Government who is well vested on all these matters and documentations for us to agree on a common position before presenting on the floor of the senate.
“I have the intellectual and legal position but the action to present anything as demanded is a political decision which I must agree with my leaders in the state”, he said.
