The People Democratic Party, PDP Cross River State Chapter Chairman, Ntufam John Okon has been awarded the best performing political leader of the state by the members of Akamkpa Students Union.

Receiving the award, the PDP party chairman commended the students for deeming it fit to present him an award. He also lauded them for what he called “actual concern you showed me during the trying times of burying my elder brother who was just like a father to me because of the fire incident, you were there for me”.

He promised to remain focused in promoting education in Akamkpa Local Government Area of the state which is his native land. Advising them that, “Just as we have always emphasize that you must have the necessary foundation which is as a leader you must have good Grade Point Average, GPA before you can speak and gain followership. Without education there’s nothing you can do, don’t let anybody deceive you”.

Ntufam John revealed that “I was a member of Ejagham Speaking Students Association, ESSA that transformed into Akamkpa Students Union today”.

Also, the Akamkpa Students Union members upon their courtesy call presented Mr. Ndifon Vincent Ntui, a third year student of Cross River University of Technology, CRUTECH engineering department, native of Akamkpa to the party chairman and the state secretary of the party, Mr. Godwin Etta for blessing as he is interested in running for the office of President, National Association of Cross River State Students, NACRISS. At this point they excused all journalists to have what the party chair described as the Akamkpa business.

Earlier, the Akamkpa Students Union President, Comrade Enyam Kelvin Christopher among other things solicited that more efforts be made to improve the educational standard of the local government, he complained of lack of adequate funding and the painful effect of what he called ‘who-has-who’ syndrome.
