The Senate leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba, has assured that the Akwa Ibom/Calabar section of the ongoing East-West road project in the Niger Delta region will be completed before others.
He disclosed this yesterday in Calabar shortly after his visit to the State Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to inform the chairman of his desire to return to the Senate in 2015.
Ndoma-Egba, who noted that the road project ought to have ended in Akwa Ibom State, also confirmed that its extension to Calabar has been approved.
“I even believe that the Akwa Ibom/Calabar end of it will probably be finished before the rest of the road”.
“The initial plan was for it to terminate in Akwa Ibom, but its extension to Calabar has since been approved”, he said.
While expressing confidence about his chances of returning to the Senate in 2015, the senator representing Cross River Central said his people’s support for him is unwavering at all times.
“Each time I am in the Central senatorial district, my people are with me. I am on ground. I am a home boy”.
“I was born in the Central, grew up in the North, settled in the South, and practised law all through in Cross River, not outside Cross River. I am grounded in Cross River”, he told party officials.
Ndoma-Egba assured his supporters that the National Assembly will not relent in making laws that have positive impact on the populace.
“The budget, the PIB would be passed on time. We would definitely take on those ones that heavily impact on the society and economy and get them out”, he added.
Ndoma-Egba, who was received at the party’s secretariat by its chairman, Ntufam John Okon, top party officials, as well as massive supporters, stressed the need for consistent representation at the National Assembly.
