C’River Speaker opens constituency liaison office, launches SOAN organisation

The Speaker of the Cross River State House Of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Elvert Ayambem over the weekend commissioned a Constituency Liaison Office at Edor in Abanyom Ward of Ikom II State Constituency – the first and only liaison office in the constituency since 1999.

During the commissioning ceremony, Ayambem stated that the Constituency Liaison Office will not only serve as a post office to relate relevant information to him but will also employ and empower 15 persons carefully appointed across all the wards of Constituency II to work as Liaison officers, adding that Messiah Ojong (Osowoagaga) will be the Coordinator, and each officer will have an instant twenty thousand naira (N20,000) airtime to call or text as duty demands.

According to Speaker Ayambem, the newly built-from-scratch 3-room liaison office which is located in the heart of Ikom II, is his first step towards empowering the people, as promised during his campaigns, saying that the liaison office will also be fully equipped with computer systems and experts employed with the sole purpose of educating young people who are willing to learn, including others who are preparing to write CBT exams, to engulf the youths with computer literacy.

Rt. Hon. Ayambem also expressed his appreciation for the people’s patience and understanding, urging them to be expectant and promised more appointments to strengthen the wards.

Shortly after the commissioning of the liaison office, the Speaker proceeded to the official inauguration of the Son Of A Nobody, SOAN Organisation Executives, a political support group with Speaker Ayambem as its sole proprietor and about 2,000 strong members on its first outing.

Speaking at the event, Mr Enok Akpil Enok, the coordinator of the Ikom Chapter, said that the SOAN Organisation is the largest and most feared politically oriented movement that is here to stay. He claimed that the organisation is driven, free-spirited, and unrepentant about getting off to a fast start.

Furthermore, he said that because of Speaker Ayambem’s exceptionally well-practiced steps in support of the People’s First Governor, Senator Prince Bassey Edet Otu, and his people-minded reforms, they are prepared to support people-oriented, transparent, and high-quality leadership without stopping.

Speaking in response, Speaker Ayambem said it makes him happy to see people trying to help their leaders because it inspires them to be even more receptive. He declared that there is no way to overstate the importance of this movement right now.

According to the Speaker, he was overwhelmed by the mammoth crowd of people under a single body with a very defined goal of creating an uncommon synergy between leaders and their people.

The Speaker reiterated commitments to support growth and prosperity of any sort, noting that It’s indeed a laudable venture that he will support and empower to the best of his ability. He also dished out over a million naira (N1,000,000) to the group in appreciation of their timely initiative.

The event, which was held at SATCOM Hotel in Edor, was attended by several other key stakeholders, including the Chief of Staff to the Speaker, Mr Anakan Victor, the Director-General of Rt. Hon.
