His emergence as a young entrepreneur in the political landscape of Cross River State on the Platform of All Progressives Congress , smacks of a divine calling beyond the dictum of discernment , evident in his speech during the formal presentation of a brand new 2022 model ~ 18 seater Toyota Computer- Hiarce Bus to the State party exco of the All Progressives Congress, a gesture he said was in support of the party’s logistic requirements for a smooth electioneering process , as the party primaries draws near.
In his words ~ “what interests me most , is the manner in which the present administration has been able to embark successfully on industrialisation within its meagre resources”. It is therefore a dictum of empiricism rather than discernment, that the young entrepreneur is empathic about the economic future of his state.
Born and bred in Ogoja LGA by Christian parents , Mr & Mrs Ekpenyong Asuquo whose paternal origin is traced to Odot in Odukpani LGA of Cross River state and maternally from Ojor in Akamkpa LGA of cross river state.
By pedigree and growing up antecedents , Engr Nsa can best be described as a Cross Riverian with a dual origin , haven been brought up partially in Ogoja, Cross River North, as well as Odukpani and Akamkpa of Cross River South has undoubtedly given him a fair understanding of the geographical terrain of the state, as well as familiarity with the people and their economic needs and resources.
Engr. Nsa , a business man and a renowned philanthropist, has proven beyond reasonable doubt to possess the right pedigree , capacity and competence to take over the mantle of leadership from its present handler, the empirical validity of this assertion is shown in his enduring entrepreneurial experience and competence leading to a good success in high level entrepreneurship.
Falling within the age bracket which the youths of Cross River state and the party at large, had long craved for, Engr Nsa Ekpenyong unarguably , has been proven to be adequately equipped with the requisite credentials and the right mental attitude that will futher strengthen the paradigm shift which the youths of Cross River state have enjoyed by their inclusiveness in government affairs , as well as in moving the youths of the state from Civil service dependent to industry hub.
Engr Nsa’s trajectory, if given the mandate according to him, shall be to consolidate on the industrialisation drive of the present administration of HE , Senator ( Prof.) Ben Ayade which shall include ~ expanding on the state’s industrial capacity and scope , as well as create an enabling environment through periodic road maintainance , rehabilitation and construction where necessary, this , in a deliberate bid for Tourism and other businesses to thrive.
Agro allied industrialisation efforts of the present administration according to him , shall be a continuum ~ this is projected in the area of Cocoa , Rice , Oil palm , Timber and livestock processing . Expanding of the existing farmers ‘ capacity in economic crop cultivation / livestock farming to a reasonable level will also be necessary , while government support programmes to farmers in a strategic effort to boost productivity leading to a stable economic base , shall also be intensified.
He furthered promised to fully utilise the abundant natural endowment of the state , which encapsulate a vast experience of fertile farmland , long stretch of riverine/maritime environment and variety of solid mineral resources to create wealth . This shall top the priority list of Engr Nsa’s transformation agenda.
It is on this note, that all hands must be on deck to ensure that a mindset towards economic transformation of our dear state , is deliberately applied by all stakeholders and teeming members of the electorate , to select the right man as candidate of the APC ,come the guber primaries in the state .
This is our sure bet to key into this divine mandate , for which glory can only be to God almighty.
