Road Maintenance: Residents Laud Councillor’s Intervention

– Sandra Bassey a gift of blessings – Ward Elders

Residents of Manta Village in Abak LGA have lauded the councilor representing Abak Urban Ward 2 and the leader of Abak Legislative Council, Hon. (Queen) Sandra Bassey for her efforts on fixing the bad portions along Manta Ukpom-Pepsi Junction Road.

Manta-Ukpom road lies in the political district of Abak Urban ward 2 and presently the major road linking Uyo and Abak local government areas through the General hospital Ukpom.The elated residents spoke in a separate interview with newsmen in Abak last Saturday, Democracy day.

Deacon N. H. Ukpong, a PDP elder in the ward appreciated the councilor for her quick intervention.

He said that the road was supposed to have been a byepass, but due to the ongoing construction of the Flyover at Nung Oku Ikono, commuters and heavy duty vehicles circumvent the work-in-progress flyover which deepened the deteriorated state of the road and had also caused hardship on residents of Abak Urban ward 2 and other road users.
“vehicles couldn’t ply this road as a result of these bad portions of the road but this remedial intervention is highly commendable”, he said.

Ukpong said that the elders of the ward are appreciative of her representation. He therefore called on other representatives to assist the State government in stepping in for the people pending State government’s response and reaction.

Also, Mr Ukeme Friday Micheal, a youth leader in Manta Village said that the road was in a terrible condition, but out of empathy the former beauty queen hurriedly intervened.

“She paid for gravels and sand, hired a water pumping machine for the evacuation of water on the road, then mobilized youths, women and men of the community who turned up enmasse to ensure the speedy completion of the stunning project”, Michael said.

He noted futher that Sandra Bassey’s love for her Ward and her people is exceptional, praying God to bless her exceedingly while pleading with the Government of Akwa Ibom State to complement Sandra’s drive by augmenting her efforts.

In the same vein, Mrs. Ekaette Akpakpan, a woman leader in the ward, said : “Sandra Bassey is God’s perfect gift of blessings to the people of Abak Urban Ward 2 to help alleviate our pains. She is our pride and her short term in office has clearly defined who she is and what she stands for”.

Hon. (Queen) Bassey thanked her people for their prompt response and sacrifices in support of her contributions to actualise the job. Finally she asked the people to continue supporting the leadership of Governor Udom Emmanuel as she will ensure more life touching projects in the area.
