The homage was after he recently attracted another set of projects to his people. The projects include electricity transformers, solar powered boreholes and several blocks of classrooms.
The federal lawmaker disclosed on phone that the projects were borne out of a meticulous needs assessment meant to meet the needs and yearnings of his people.
According to him, “it’s incumbent on me to continually thrive to interfere and build synergy especially at the federal level with relevant stakeholders in order to attract vital projects needed by my people.
“This current intervention is one in a series to address critical infrastructure deficits in order to boost commerce and industry, human capital development with a view of enhancing their living standard.”
The Chairman, Cross River State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Comrade Victor Udu applauded Ntufam Eta Mbora for the solar powered borehole being installed at the NUJ Secretariat.

A community leader in Otop Otop, Nyakassang in Calabar Municipality, Mr. Andrew Edoh said the 500 KVA transformer facilitated by Eta Mbora and undergoing installation within his community is timely.
