The Obol Lopon of Nko, Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River State was full of praised for Dr Alex Egbona on Monday, when the lawmaker who represents the Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency in the House of Reps took his campaign for re-election to the area.
The traditional ruler said Egbona behaved like a true representative of the people when he stood by them in their trying times, drawing the attention of the world to their plight in the nads of the military and also giving them money and food when they really needed help.
For that reason, Egbona got a massive endorsement for his re-election drive from Nko. The traditional ruler said Egbona was the best thing to happen to Nko as a people and noted that the people were really happy with him and would stand by him all the way.
The monarch, with the support of his council of chiefs(Bi-inah) passed a vote of confidence on Egbona and other candidates present, including the speaker of the state house of assembly, Mr Eteng Jones and other candidates of the APC.
Stake holders from both wards of Nko, vis-a-vis Nkpolo/Ukpawen and Abanankpai ward respectively, endorsed the candidates and pledged 100 per cent support for them. They said they could not afford to support someone else, considering all they have benefitted from Egbona.
