I WILL BREAK MY OWN RECORDS IN PERFORMANCE AND SELFLESS REPRESENTATION
Fellow Abi/Yakurr People,
About four years ago, against all odds, you elected and sent me to the House of Representatives to work and speak for you.
Of course you had other choices, but you chose me to be your voice in Abuja.
I went there with a clear-cut agenda- to serve you with all my mind, with all my strength and with all my might. From day one, I set out to make a difference in all council wards of the federal constituency. I can say convincingly, that Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency is now on the path of progress, development and prosperity.
It was the desire to do even more for you, that made me decide to come back to you for a renewed mandate. There are a lot of programmes and projects that I initiated which I need to conclusively execute. So I launched a re-election campaign, showcasing an undisputed report card of phenomenal achievements. Then, on February 25, 2023, you graciously gave me a fresh mandate to return to the National Assembly.
From Ediba to Afafanyi, from Nko to Inyima, from Ekureku to Ijom, from Ekori to Nko, in fact, from all parts of the constituency, you spoke with one voice, giving me a stamp of authority to be your voice, your ears and your eyes in the Green Chambers of the National Assembly.
I must thank you for choosing me again, from the list of candidates that contested the election. Some of you staked your life. A lot of you stood under the hot sun, waited for long hours just to vote for me.
I am aware that some of you used personal resources to mobilise support for me.
From all parts of the country, you came back home just to cast your vote for me. You did not only vote, you also waited to know the outcome at your polling unit. You made a lot of sacrifices for me to secure this second term mandate. I will not take this for granted at all. Thank you very much indeed. This victory is therefore dedicated to the Almighty God who gave me the grace to do all that I have done in the course of my service to our constituency. I equally dedicate the victory to those old men and women, those youths and ardent supporters for their steadfastness and courage all through the political battle.
Let me assure you that I will not let you down. I will work harder than I did during my first term. I will surpass my own record and take this constituency to another level, to the envy of others.
As I have always said, please pray for me always.
May God continue to guide and keep us to enjoy all that God has in store for us.
Long live Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency of Cross River State.
Dr Alex Egbona
Abi/Yakurr Federal Constituency
