The immediate past Commissioner for Industry Cross River State, Mr. Peter Egba Akam has declared his intention to contest for the Obubra/Etung Federal Constituency seat in the 2023 General Elections. Crowed of fans who were drumming and chatting solidarity for their aspirant and magnifying him for his tremendous achievement as commissioner. 

Speaking during the declaration, the former Commissioner declared his readiness to drive a prosperity agenda for the people of Obubra/Etung Federal Constituency.

“I want to thank my boss and the leader of our great party, the only digital Governor for the opportunity he gave some of us to serve our dear state. Of course, it has been a worthwhile experience serving under his purview. Today, I am standing tall because he offered me the opportunity”

Speaking further on his aspiration to represent the people of Obubra/Etung Federal Constituency, the erstwhile Commissioner decried the present state of lack of representation in the federal Constituency.

“For 12years till 2015, we had a lawmaker who represented us wonderfully well, as if he was a Governor of the state. This is because his representation cut across all the state. As a lawmaker, he offered employment and empowerment opportunities across the state. I have come here today to say that I want to step into those shoes that he left behind and to drive the prosperity agenda for our people. I understand that the basic duties of a lawmaker is lawmaking, which is representation and oversight function and I possess the social capital to meet other challenges incidental to my office. I have therefore come to say, please give me that opportunity to drive the prosperity agenda for my people and this party. Let me reiterate that it is not my duty to judge the performance of the current occupant but I will leave that to the court of Public opinion to Judge.

In his reaction, the State Chairman of the Party, Barr. Alphonsus Eba, described the aspirant as a bosom friend who have shown enormous capacity and commitment to his people and party.

“I am happy to receive you here today. Our path crossed in 2015 and we became brothers, friends, allies and today you are running an election. So, I understand you have so much confidence because your friend is the state Chairman and have placed your fate on the hands of your friend. I am confronted with a situation where I have to go against my Principle but because you are close to me and possess the capacity from Ababene, Ofodua, Ofat down to Etung, I will do what you want and that is Politics."
