Senator representing Cross River South senatorial district, Geshon Bassey, has assured that the federal government will make resources available for the rehabilitation of 250km Ogoja – Calabar road, now in complete state of disrepair.
Senator Bassey gave this assurance while speaking to some journalists at the National Assembly recently, adding however that the inauguration of the federal executive council is being awaited for the final lobby and consultation that will firm-up the commencement of road projects across the country.
Bassey disclosed that the 7th Assembly lawmakers from the state made frantic efforts to tackle the project but to no avail, stressing that the members of the 8th Assembly are however desperate to ensure that they push the case through lobbying and consultation for the eventual execution of the project.
Senator Bassey explained that, already, he has co-sponsored a motion recently on the floor of the Senate in that regard, saying that the motion is receiving the desired attention of his colleagues at the upper chamber.
“The motion in the senate is not only on the Ogoja – Calabar road alone; many other roads in other parts of the country are being addressed by the motion and as soon as the federal executive council is constituted, the roads will be fixed, including that of Ogoja – Calabar in Cross River State,” the lawmaker assured.
Senator Bassey, who praised the people of Cross River South for electing him to the upper chamber of the legislature, said that the people made no mistake in giving him the lever to represent them, assuring that he is prepared to ensure quality representation by way of making quality contributions to debates on the floor, as well as by lobbying vital projects to his constituency.
“I’m here because my people want quality representation; they want the good things that democracy provides, including good roads, electricity, health delivery services and quality education, among so many others. I assure them that I will not fail them on these vital ingredients of life,” he said.
Reacting to the list of ministerial nominees reportedly submitted to the senate last week, Senator Bassey said the lawmakers will do justice to the list, assuring that they will however be guided by the sense of nationalism and patriotism in the screening exercise.
He described the proposed aptitude test for commissioner-nominees in Cross River as not just the idea of Governor Benedict Ayade alone but that of the entire state Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, aimed at bringing the best brains that will move the governance system in the state to another level, and urged all Cross Riverians to queue behind the governor for greater transformation.
