Constituents of Oron/Udung Uko State Constituency To Witness Mega Constituency Briefing Soon - Hon. Effiong Bassey

The Member Representing Oron/Udung Uko State Constituency at the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Hon. Effiong Bassey has expressed willingness to meet electorates and people of his constituency on a 'Constituency Briefing/Empowerment Programme' within a short time.

Speaking with newsmen in Uyo in the early hours of Friday, the Assembly man informed that plans to stage the event which already began in November, 2017 are already in the offing, as he prepares ahead to comprehensively notify his people of his roles, experience, challenges and achievements as a legislator, and also render an account of stewardship on the said occasion.

According to Hon. Bassey, although a specific date for the ceremony is yet to be slated by the planners, the date shall not be later than the first quarter of the year 2018.

"Hopefully, we will hold the briefing within the month of March this year, but we cannot delay the event into the second quarter of the year. When we started preparing in November, last year, the motive was to hold the briefing and empowerment programme during the yuletide, but we became cash trapped and had to reschedule," he explained.

When quizzed on what should be the expectations of the public at the ceremony, Hon. Bassey who is also the immediate past Deputy Speaker of the sixth Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly said he has recently been working round the clock to ensure a massive outing, adding that a scheme for the empowerment of students, artisans, traders and constituents who belong in other categories shall be implemented, with cash and gift items dolled out to deserving beneficiaries. This, according to Hon. Effiong Bassey is in line with his campaign promises, to salvage the living situations of many, thereby raising the bar of legislative representation in Oron/Udung Uko State Constituency.
