Senator Gershom Bassey, who represents Cross River South Senatorial District in the Senate, has donated a brand new 32-seater Coaster bus to the Cross River State Traditional Rulers Council to ease their transportation to their place of duties, in keeping with his campaign promise of reaching out to the masses.
The Senator, who also serves as Chairman of the House Committee on Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), has repeatedly stated his commitment to ensuring that no member of his district is denied the benefits of democracy and adequate representation.
Sen. Gershom Bassey’s mandate has clearly distinguished itself in service to His immediate constituents, His state, and Nigeria at large, according to Barr. Ekpo Ada, who presented the key on behalf of the Senator.
Transportation, he says, is the pivot around which the wheel of every modern economy revolves.
“The people of Cross River South can attest to Senator Gershom Bassey’s contributions to human capital growth, and there has been a bountiful harvest of citizen-oriented initiatives designed to meet constituents’ yearning for a better life. The assistance is timely in order to improve socioeconomic initiatives, allowing citizens to transfer from one place to another,” Barr. Ekpo said.
The Chairman of the Cross River State Traditional Rulers Council of Bakassi Local Government Area, His Majesty, Etinyin Etim Okon Edet, praised the Senator’s gesture and thanked him for remembering them at this time, saying that the bus would help to accommodate them on a long journey.
