Chairman of the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, Senator Owan Enoh, the National Vice Chairman, south south of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ntufam Hilliard

Eta, among others, bagged were on Sunday  bestowed with awards by youths of African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Calabar, on Sunday.

The occasion was the thanksgiving service of the church presided over by the prelate of the church, Bishop Uduak U. Effiong, who presented the plaques to the awardees.

Eta had gone there to give thanks to God for his victory in the 23rd June national convention of the APC.

Almost all the who's who in APC in the zone graced the occasion, whose message titled 'Serving With A Difference' was delivered by the prelate himself.

In his message, the bishop admonished politicians not to bring down their parties whenever they lose an election, adding that not everybody could be elected at the same time.

He called for equity in the country and that Eta and all other politicians should serve with a difference, adding that all the six geopolitical zones should have equal number of seven states and that the cost of governance should be reduced.

Effiong decried wanton killings in the country and prayed that evil reports should end henceforth.

In his remarks, Eta thanked God for his victory and attributed it to God's miracle.

He said God used men to perform the miracle, adding that if not for God, the odds against him during the national congress could not have been surmounted.

He praised Aisha Buhari, Owan Enoh, Adams Oshiomhole, Great Ogboru who was at the thanksgiving, Senators John Akan Udoedehe, Ovie, Don Etiebet, Solomon Iduda, Ernest Irek who was beaten blue black at the convention ground, Timipre Sylva, Magnus Abe, Clement Ebri, Mary Ekpere, Mrs Ochala, and lots of others who stood by him during the congress to ensure he emerged victorious.

Eta and his entourage later donated to the church for the completion of the building, assuring that he would do his best to bring good things to the people of the state.

He also advised religious leaders not to preach hate messages but pray for President Muhammadu Buhari to succeed, adding that he gave a lot of appointments to indigenes of Cross River and that “the narrative in the media that he is a bigot should be discountenanced.”
