Speaking at the ceremony, the Representative of the Senator, Mr Hope Obeten said: “This medical outreach is in keeping with some of our campaign promises of prioritising the people’s welfare and wellbeing. We believe this is a necessary intervention for our people because we noticed most of them have these health challenges but don’t have the means to receive any medical attention.

“We believe this is a worthwhile venture that will make people’s lives better. This Intervention means a lot and makes a lot of difference in the lives of many of them. And we are doing it to complement the efforts of the Cross River State Government through the State Ministry of Health.

“I think we are doing the right thing and I believe that next year, by the Grace of God, we will do more if we see more people who need our Intervention.”
