Despite her effort in taking empowerment beyond political boundaries and Stomach infrastructures, Ambassador Nkoyo Toyo, member representing Calabar/Odukpani Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives has said that her best is yet to come if given the opportunity to return to the lower chambers of the National Assembly on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in 2015.
Speaking when she led her supporters to the PDP Secretariat along Muritala Muhammed Highway Calabar to pick her intent form, Nkoyo informed the party stalwarts of her desire to seek re-election to continue her representation of the constituency beyond 2015.
She said despite her effort to turn around the fortunes of her constituents in the past three years, her experience is not strong enough to match the national politicking in the green chambers.
She said her return to the federal lower House will give her opportunity to consolidate on the foundation laid in lawmaking, oversight and representation by attracting more projects to Calabar/Odukpani in particular and other parts of the state in general.
“I have in the past three years attracted educational, health, street lights, agriculture, water and housing scheme projects to my constituents which I believe have gone a long way in impacting on the lives of the people and create employment especially for the youths.
“In my second term if given opportunity, I will bring greater things for my constituents and the state.
“Any states that keep changing its representatives in the National Assembly is depleting its voice at the centre.
“I have been able to do what I did within the last three years because of my restless effort, knowing what my people back home are facing.
“Mr. Chairman, PDP dominates the House of Representatives in National Assembly but the opposition has a louder voice at all times due to their clout and their experience because some of them are in their third and fourth terms” she said.
