Sen. Gershom Bassey has put a smile on the faces of his constituents this yuletide season by empowering his constituents with tricycles, in order to foster independency and self reliance amongst youths.
This is coming after the Senator had facilitated a grant of N473,000 for his constituents, empowered 200 constituents and facilitated the training and empowerment of women in Southern Senatorial District of Cross River State.
The PDP Chairman, Calabar South Chapter, Hon Felix Offiong while delivering the keys to Mr. Eyo Essien on behalf of Emem Abasi Group, Anantigha, Mr. Rueben Okon Ekpo on behalf of ID Boys, and Hon. Ikpeme Erete on behalf of Gershom Ambassadors, enjoined them to make judicious use of the tricycles to help themselves. He stated that the Senator believes in hard work and will be encouraged to do more if the tricycles are put to good use.
Sen. Gershom Bassey represented by his DG, Hon Ekpo Ada charged the recipients to use the tricycles to generate income that will supplement their different businesses.
Mr. Eyo Essien, Mr. Reuben Okon Ekpo, Mr. Ikpeme Erete representing Emem Abasi Group, Anantigha, ID Boy, Gershom Ambassadors respectively, received the tricycles at different locations and expressed their gratitude to Sen. Gershom Bassey and prayed to God to continue lifting the Senator to greater heights.
