I will like to assure the Obudu people that this new mandate will not deviate from those ideals.

“My sincere and heartfelt appreciation goes to His Excellency, Senator Prof. Ben Ayade for the fatherly role he has played from the time my husband passed on till now. Indeed, the Governor’s brotherly care and support for late Rt. Hon. Stephen Ukpukpen has continued to grow through the year. I also thank Her Excellency, Dr. Linda Ayade for her friendship, kindness and loving support.

“Finally, I will like to thank all who worked tirelessly, investing their own resources to ensure victory at the polls. I pray that the good Lord will bless you and cause help to be available every time you need it".
