A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Distinguished Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, has observed that the manifesto of Senator (Prince) Bassey Otu, the Cross River State gubernatorial flag bearer of All Progressives Congress (APC), was well-packaged with numerous planned programmes and projects aimed at transforming the state.

Ndoma-Egba, a former Senate Leader and erstwhile Chairman Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), who made the observation in an interview, said he was of the conviction that Prince Otu would ensure the implementation of the content of the policy document which serves as a social contract between him and Cross Riverians.

The ex-Senate Leader, explained that his confidence that Otu would not disappoint in the actualization of his plans as outlined in his People-First Manifesto, was borne out of his past records as a member of the Federal Parliament, where he was seen to have proven to be a promise-keeper with his fulfilment of the pledges he had made to his constituents.

“I was with Senator Bassey Otu the day he formally presented his People-First Manifesto to the media at the Press Centre in Calabar, the Cross River State capital. I have had the opportunity of reading it. And like the theme says, it is indeed a People-First Manifesto. Every detail of the booklet is targeted at enhancing the welfare of the people, enhancing their opportunities, enhancing their access to resources, enhancing their well-being. The manifesto is truly people-centred with detailed provisions of how Cross River would be transformed for the betterment of the lives of the people and overall development of the state. It inspires confidence and shows clearly that Prince Otu can steer Cross River in the right direction to take the state to greater heights,” the legal luminary and astute politician averred.

Critical areas of focus in the 34-page manifesto designed to build on the achievements and legacies of all previous administrations in the state include: Agriculture, infrastructure, mineral resources, education, health, land administration & management, human capital development and humanitarian affairs.
