OMG!!! See where a C'River lawmaker took his certificate of returns to

Member representing Bakassi state house constituency in the Cross River State House of Assembly who was recently returned to represent his people for the second time, Hon Ekpo Ekpo has been caught on camera doing what is unusual.

The quiet lawmaker and chairman house committee on Health is hardly on the news but today he can't escape being read, as a Facebook post indicates that the Honorable member after collecting his certificate of returns from INEC immediately moved straight to the hospital and landed himself by the bedside of Hon. Ani Esin to present the certificate before him.

Recall that Ani Esin who also hails from Bakassi, is the State security adviser to the governor, South. Ani recently escaped an assassination attempt on his life just after the general elections and has been since hospitalised. 

Many believed his attack was an aftermath of money sharing during the elections.

Hon. Ekpo's  actions was made known by a Facebook user who shared the picture with this inscriptions; 

"Congratulations once again to Dr Ekpo Ekpo.

At least this will encourage Hon Ani Esin to get well soon.

God bless our collective struggles. May his name alone be praise"

The post attracted several comments from top government officials including the state commissioner of health, Dr. Inyang Asibong whose comment read thus; 

" Wow!! This is so heartwarming.  Two great brothers, each providing a shoulder for the other to lean on!"

George Odok, a senior correspondent with NAN also found time to comment on the thread.
"I like this. Speedy healing SSA Ani Esin"
