The Labour Party (LP) candidate for Ikom/Boki Federal Constituency in the 2023 elections, Hon. Ochang Alvin Ochang, in a goodwill message to the Boki people as they celebrate the 2022 New Yam Festival, eulogized their forefathers for the legacy bequeathed and the opportunity it provided for the present and future generation to showcase their agrarian prowess and viability.
“As we celebrate our 2022 Annual New Yam Festival today, may I sincerely eulogized our forefathers who bequeathed unto us this venerable occasion to showcase to the world our very rich agrarian culture as a people, contributing our quota to feeding others in sustenance of life and healthy living.
“This legacy has accorded the Boki Nation both local and international recognition amongst the committee of nations, and has boosted our economy and increased the gross domestic product. Hence, we engaged our locals in commercial and productive activities.
“It is my wish that the Cross River State Government should accord the Boki New Yam Festival the deserving status as we have over the years contributed to the growth of the state especially in tourism, as the occasion brings people from all walks of life and from different states and countries. And this I will pursue when I become your elected representative come 2023.
“On this note, my fervent appeal to all sons and daughters of Boki is to sustain the annual rites and that can be done only by the cultivation of yams and other economic crops that are dear to our hearts and brings money into our pockets. No wonder that the Boki people are very healthy and wealthy people with a green environment.
“I call on all Bokians both at home and in the diaspora to use this year’s festival to showcase love for one another, eschew any form of hatred amongst us and as we celebrate, let us remember the purpose of our creation by God Almighty in establishing His reign on earth.
“Today is not a day for politics or any sort, but an occasion for sober reflection. Hence, stock taking on how we have fared as a people both individually and collectively and looking forward to 2023, to never again make avoidable mistakes like in the past, which adversely affected us and deter our growth.
“The choice of the future we yearn for is now and a better one is possible by scrutinizing the candidates put up for elections by different political parties to choose from amongst us, the very most qualified and can be trusted. HAPPY 2022 BOKI NEW YAM FESTIVAL, once again and God bless us all,” he concluded.
Signed:
HON. OCHANG, ALVIN OCHANG.
