“Our agricultural produce can now be accessed by buyers right in our villages. The death of the late Justice Takon Ndoma-Egba has brought joy and development to us in Akparabong” said one Michael Ojong a resident of the village.

  • It is a shame for prominent who seek for their own family members only. I hope if another renown person died, there shall be another improvement of good accessible road, like this justice. Another development may be provision of good water supply. If it is only death that can give us good things while can’t they not provide good things in their area while alive to praised than after death? The day of judgement is coming to all sons and daughters of oppression.
