The Senator representing Cross River Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator John Owan Enoh has been described as a man of the people.
This commendation was made by governor Benedict Ayade at Holy Family Catholic Church, Ikom on Sunday at the thanksgiving service of the Senator which signalled the end of the thank you tour he embarked on to the seven local government areas that make up the district.
Ayade who thanked the people of Ikom for their support during the elections spoke highly of Owan Enoh saying “I thank you in the name of the Lord for the massive support given to me and for believing in me. I want to reassure you and reaffirm the catechism of my faith devoid of all the sarcasm and arrogance of power and office.
“Today is a testimony to the wonderful works of Senator Owan Enoh, he has a kind heart, an open hand, a man with compassion, a man with the sense of God, a man with feelings. It is only a man with such character that can attract this kind of crowd and calibre of people before you”.
He advised the former three term House of Representatives member to continue in his good works for God will reward him. Sending a message to Cross Riverians, Ayade reaffirmed his resolve to take the state to greater heights, adding that with the people’s support and prayers “we will redefine the meaning of politics, we shall create new horizons, we shall put an end to hunger, you shall see one politician who understands the fear of God and not just by saying it but also practicing it, you shall see a politician who after four years you will say carry on because you have kept to your word”.
Senator Owan Enoh, who simply responded to the governor’s commendation simply by saying, “Thank you, thank you, thank you”, attended the service in company of his wife, Senator Gershom Bassey, who represents Cross River South Senatorial District and other dignitaries as well as a massive crowd of supporters who had followed him all through the week in a thank you tour that took him round the six LGAs that make up the Central Senatorial district.
