The Member Representing Obubra/Etung Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives and the Chairman House of Representatives Committee on “Legislative, Budget and Research”, Rt. Hon Mike Etaba has during the Needs Assessment tour in Obubra/Etung commended his constituents for maintaining peace in the communities.
Mike Etaba who decided to use the few days of National Assembly Recess to tour round all the waring communities in his constituency and see things for himself, extended his sympathy to families who lost their family members during and after the 2019 general elections.
Frowning at how most youth had resolved to carrying laws into their hands, Etaba said there is need to look beyond party and work together for the growth of the constituency. Extending his compassion, Rt. Hon Mike Etaba also gave undisclosed cash to 27 people who were affected during or before the election saying those not captured will be captured in the second phase.
Continuing, Etaba said elections have come and gone, party politics should be thrown aside and let all the leaders reunite again so as to chart the way forward for the development and growth of the constituency.
“I wish to state it in clear terms that 2019 general elections have come and gone and by the Grace of God, I have successfully returned back to do my second term, and it is a pity to also note that in the course of the 2019 battle, we lost some of our brothers and family members, I’m also aware that many lost their houses and cars, but in all I want to thank you all for the trust and mandate given to me, with the tears in my eyes, I will ensure that Obubra/Etung gets the highest share of democracy dividends this time”, Mike Etaba added.
“I also wish to inform you that we will take responsibility of everything that has happened, in our second phase, we will try as much as we can to ensure we get across to all those who were affected during and after the election”, Etaba said.
Among the communities he visited during the tour includes; Efraya, in Etung Local Government Area of Cross River State, Ofumbongha, Adun, Obubra Urban, Apiapum all in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State.
Meanwhile, in an interview with one of the villagers in Etung, who pleaded anonymity expressed satisfaction at the leadership qualities and style of Rt. Hon Mike Etaba, “he has done well for him to think of his people in a time like this, we recommend him”.
When asked what they wants him (Mike Etaba) to do for them in his second term, “Eem..! Let him think of his people, we are lacking a lot of government infrastructures, no light, no good road, no good water, no employment, the youths are suffering, they need employment”
