THE BEAUTY OF A MANDATE IN THE HANDS OF A SCHOLAR: NORTHERN CROSS RIVER IN FOCUS.



The glowing beauty of a political mandate entrusted by the people into the hands of an individual is seen not by the elevation of such an individual,but by the direct impact of such a mandate in the lives of the people,and this is exactly the prerogative of Chief Wabilly Nyiam,the Senatorial Candidate of the APC for Northern Cross River State in the 2019 general elections.

Although a scholar in the deep sense of the word,but also a technocrat and philanthropist whose wealth of experience is absolutely inexhaustible,the combined effect of which the northern Senatorial District of Cross River State will gain a great deal.

A brief historical background of the life of Chief Wabilly Ugbashi Nyiam reveals that he is a native of Mbube,a renown community in Ogoja LGA,and a graduate of the prestigious University of Calabar,where he bagged a Bachelor's Degree in Physics in 1989. Immediately after his graduation,Wabilly's intellect was put to test. And then,he started as a teacher at Ogunbor Secondary School,Benin city from 1989 to 1990. Shortly after,Wabilly was appointed to serve as a Project Manager in a Civil Engineering firm known as KSV Nig.Ltd,a position he occupied from 1993 to 2002.

Subsequently though,Wabilly's constant exertion of his intellectual faculty paved another way for him,and this time,he was appointed as the Project Director of Petrowest Nig Ltd,an Electrical Engineering Company,a position he also occupied from 2005 to 2011. And from 2011 till present,Chief Wabilly serves as a Consultant on Solar Power Estimation and System Design to VOWWN Consults Nig Ltd.

Interestingly however,in the midst of all of these,Chief Wabilly has dominated the political landscape of Northern Cross River as a political force to reckon with,and he is widely known in his philosophy of making Northern Cross River State First among its equal. Deep in thought and committed to his political ideology,he contested for the chairmanship position of Ogoja LGA in 2003 on the platform of the APP. In 2007,he contested for the governorship position  of Cross River State on the platform of the ANPP,and in 2011,he contested for the Federal House of Reps on the same platform.

In addition to that,Wabilly,as he is fondly called,was the Deputy National Chairman of the ANPP,a member of the Harmonisation Committee that formed the APC,a Caucus Member of the APC and a Board of Trustees Member of the APC representing Cross River State.

Versed in his exposure by reason of his travel to different parts of the world,Chief Wabilly has responded and offered himself as the deal that Northern Cross River needs at the Nigerian Senate. 

Northern Senatorial District of Cross River State consists of Ogoja,Yala,Bekwarra,Obanliku and Obudu. A light survey across these areas will justify why the people have taken Wabilly for a better alternative. A vote for Wabilly of the APC is a vote for Federal presence in the various communities in the northern Senatorial District of Cross River State. Being the first is a possibility,and northern Cross River will be the First with Wabilly at the Senate.
