Winner of the House of Representatives elect for Abi/Yakurr Local Government in Cross River State, Dr Alex Egbona, on Thursday received his certificate of return from the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Egbona was the only APC member from the state to have won the just concluded elections in the state. He had defeated the speaker, Mr John Gaul to clinch the position.
In an interview shortly after receiving the certificate, Egbona told TNN that his resolve to turn things around in his constituency had been reinvigorated by INEC’s official confirmation of his election.
He said he was humbled by the commitment of the Abi/Yakurr people to his electoral victory and restated his commitment to quality representation at the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
