Beneficiaries Hail Ndoma-Egba’s Empowerment Drive
Beneficiaries of last weekend empowerment programme of the Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN, have commended the Senator for his humanitarian gesture towards the people of Cross River Central Senatorial District since they elected him to represent them in the Red Chamber in 2003.
In separate interview with some of the recipients, they noted that Ndoma-Egba's effort in putting smiles on the faces of members of his constituency through the manifold projects he has attracted to the central senatorial district of Cross River State was quite commendable.
Loveth Nkan Bisong, a banking and finance graduate of University of Calabar (UNICAL) from Etung Local Government Area is one of the 120 beneficiaries of the CBN/Ndoma-Egba Business Enterprising Training who received N200, 000 each as start-up capital.
According to Bisong, 'The programme was very interesting. It teaches you how to start your own life and be self-reliant. I just want to thank Senator Nodma-Egba for his benevolence. He has done so many things but people don't know because he is not thenoise-making and bragging type. He doesn't show off. A lot of people have benefited from his kindheartedness. For the three weeks of the training, there was enough food for everybody; transportation was made available for us. We really had a nice time because we didn't lack anything in the course of the training courtesy of our able and dynamic Senator.'
For Otu Peter Echadu, a 200-level student of UNICAL from Boki LGA, 'We thank God for giving us a man like Ndoma-Egba as our Senator; a man who is interested in the growth of the youths in his constituency. I am happy to be a beneficiary of his laudable empowerment programme. Our Senator has proven himself to be a worthy son of Cross River Central. I thank him and urge him to keep up the good work he is doing in the Upper Chamber on behalf of his people.'
Items of empowerment distributed at the epoch-making event witnessed by the Senate President, Senator David Mark, his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, Cross River State Governor, Liyel Imoke and other prominent Nigerians from all walks of life included: cars, generators, deep freezers, viewing centre equipment, laptops, farm tools, oil mills, beans/corn mills, Garri Processing Machines, musical equipment to a number of churches in various communities across the six LGAs in Cross River Central.
