2023: Bakassi Council Secretary Declares Intention For State House Of Assembly


The Secretary of Bakassi Local Government Council, Hon Eyo Bassey Edet on Thursday declared his intention to represent the  Bakassi State Constituency in the Cross River State  under the flagship of APC in 2023

Speaking at an end of year party attended by the the Bakassi  APC chapter and ward executive members    , Eyo, who is popularly known as Empowerment , noted that his intention is borne out the fact that come 2023, a candidate from the riverine area should represent Bakassi in the state house of assembly

Going memory lane, Eyo disclosed that as a Councilor in 2011, he enacted an empowerment program of various dimensions which impacted positively on members of his constituency and beyond and since then he has not relented 

According to him, ” I have always had a good thought for my people. I was given  N1.4 million as furniture allowance as a Councilor , and I spent N 1 million on an empowerment program across my ward and beyond and some of the beneficiaries of that program are here and can testify” 

He further disclosed that even as a secretary of Council, he has stretched his hands to assist many people in various ways, not because he has money but for the love he has for the development of  people and the area.

Eyo, whose speech was intermittently disrupted by the shout of ” Empowerment, The Man We Know, The Man We Want”, noted that he chose the time to inform the party executive of his intention  because business starts in 2022 for 2023 while appealing for encouragement and support to succeed 

He assured them of his continuous support and therefore urged the crowd to share the political gospel as he is available for service and will bring part of the proceeds as a member of the state house of assembly to the people

“Though campaign will start next year, I count on your votes  and I urge you to resist big men and big names as you have done for me before  because  I am always available for you, my people”, he said

The Bakassi Local Government Area APC Chapter Chapter, Sir Gerald Esin, in his remarks , observed that the occasion was not a campaign  but an end of year get together for chapter and ward executive members of the party, but thanked Eyo for coming out early to declare his intention  and therefore urged others with such intentions to follow suit especially during the Yuletide

Esin lauded governor Ben Ayade for strengthening the party structure in the state and  enjoined party members to be resolute and believe in the party as more goodies will come their way next year
