The Speaker Cross River State House Assembly, Hon. John Gaul Lebo has pledged to support the Chapel of Mercy, Afokang Prison Calabar.

He made the pledge during a routine monthly visit to the Chapel of Mercy Chaplaincy Afokang Prison.

Hon Lebo stated that the Gaul Lebo Foundation and Prison Ministry, tagged “Welfare Evangelism” which he had inherited from his father had been in existence for 15 years.

The Speaker promised to make available Gideon Bibles, Devotionals and other Biblical literature to help uplift the spiritual well-being of inmates, emphasizing that the gospel should not be preached on empty stomach hence the need for the humanitarian gesture to provide food stuffs for inmates.

He enjoined inmates to respect prison authorities and see the prison as a reformation ground, reiterating his resolve to train former inmates at the CBN- Entrepreneurship Development Center.

According to the Speaker, this gesture would help the former prisoners acquire trade skills and capacities that would enable them to live well and easily re-integrate into the society.

Speaking, Barrister William Anwan, officiating minister of the Chapel of Mercy Chaplaincy, Afokang Prison extolled Hon. John Gaul for his magnanimity while wishing him well in all his endeavours.
