According to Asibong, the yuletide celebrations began years back to show gratitude to the people of Calabar South and to spread the message of love and oneness.
“Today, we have gathered again like we have done in the last couple of years to celebrate Christmas together. It is a thing of great joy to identify with the people for celebrations.
“This is to enable us to sit together and reach out to people with a token for their support to the present Administration in Cross River State and to discuss with party men and women”, an elated Asibong noted.
She urged the people to continue to support the APC led Administration at all levels in the forthcoming general elections in 2023 to take the state to greater heights.
The year-end celebrations witnessed distribution of food items and cash to the natives, students, widows and other categories of persons; goodwill messages, cultural performances by various troupes displaying the rich cultural heritage of the Efik kingdom and other entertainments to fun seekers.
