Senator Victor Ndoma Egba, Nigeria’s Senate Leader on Wednesday handed out six cars to PDP Youth Leaders in the six local government areas that constitute the central senatorial district of Cross River State.
Senator Ndoma Egba who was represented on the occasion by Dr Patrick Abang, a retired lecturer at the Cross River State University of Technology said the cars were given to the youth leaders in furtherance of his commitment to improving the lives of his constituents whom he had earlier handed out forty two cars on May 24, 2014.
He said the youth leaders are a critical link in the political chain in the state and as people who are saddled with the responsibility of mobilizing the youths, it is only people to enable them perform their job well through easy and fast mobility which the cars will provide. “These cars will improve your lives and as well help you perform your jobs effectively as youths leaders who are at the grassroots to mobilize the youths of our great party so kindly use these cars well” The Senate Leader admonished the youths.
He said the cars should not be used in such a way as to be a threat to their lives but to serve as a source of moving them forward in their careers and political contribution in the growth of the party and state.
Speaking on behalf of the Youth Leaders, Mr. Celestine Okey, Obubra Youth Leader and the chairman of the PDP Youth Leaders in the Central Senatorial District said Senator Ndoma Egba with the gesture has significantly enhanced their work in the senatorial district in mobilizing youths and called on other senators and Reps members representing the northern and southern senatorial districts to extend same gesture to the youth leaders in those districts.
“A gift of a car is a big sacrifice on the part of the person giving it and as such the life of the person receiving it will be improved and with this Senator Ndoma Egba has improved our lives a great deal”.
Recipients of the car gift include Okim Asu Ojung of Ikom, Iwada Iwokor of Abi, Sunday Bassey of Yakkur, Emmanuel Obi of Boki and Celestine Okey of Obubra.
