CHIEF Henry Igelle Onwe, a frontrunner for the vacant Ogoja/Yala House of Representatives position has again reasserted his commitment to contest the election and not just contest but also confident of  coasting home to victory in the poll.

The incoming MP who made this known while interacting with members of the Henry Igelle Onwe, Media Team on Thursday during a Dinner Night fete he organised for them expressed gratitude to the members of the team for their  performance and encouraged them not to relent. He delightfully welcomed all the Media team members and all the stakeholders present as well as those unavoidably absent and encouraged them to continue in the good work they have started as they are walking  on the right path.

"I'm particularly very happy with the Media Team and I'm delighted to have you all here together. Since we started this journey or project, we haven't physically met or gathered like this 

Chief Onwe said since he indicated interest in the position, goodwill and support from the people of the federal constituency have been massive

"Of all the aspirants running alongside with us, it is only Henry Igelle Onwe Media Team that is everywhere: online, electronics, print,  internet and people have been asking what is the secret and we know it is hardwork and commitment to the cause of bringing good representation  to our people that is the driving force behind your excellent performance and I commend you for a job well done".

He reassured the team  that when elected, he will not abandon his core supporters and the people who elected him the way some politicians do and called on them  not to waiver in what they are doing to because  victory awaits them during  the primary and subsequent election that will follow.

"The publicity you have given to this cause has been loud and wide and you did all that without seeing me which means you have confidence in me  so I want to sincerely thank you for this and for making people believe in this cause, please keep it up".

Chief Onwe also thanked the governor of the state, His Excellency, Senator Professor Ben Ayade on his drive to grow the All Progressives Congress ,APC, in the state and assured him of his unflinching support and loyalty while  the governor makes sure APC wins every position in the next election.

"Without a single shot, without much noise, without confrontation every nook and cranny of Cross River State is now APC and this is through the effort of our Digital Governor which is quite commendable and I assure him of total support and loyalty from me and my people".

He also congratulated the State  Chairman- elect, Barrister Alphonsus Eba and his executive for the evangelism to win more members to the party which is already bringing result with prominent People's Democratic Party, PDP,  members defecting to to the party

The campaign DG of Henry Onwe for House of Representatives Mr Atarry Moses  tasked  the media members and the stakeholders present to continue to unleash effective publicity for ChiefHenry Onwe as he is the best choice for the position .

In his words, "since I met with him, my family has not recovered  from the good gesture of our incoming MP Chief Henry Onwe  I. am a living testimony. Anyone that comes in contact with Henry has a better story to tell. Let us go home  this December and Think Henry Onwe, Speak Henry Onwe, Act Henry Onwe, Sing Henry Onwe, And declare Henry Onwe for Ogoja/Yala." he started.

The APC stalwart called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to announce a date for the election and stop putting the people of Cross River North in suspense.

"The Speaker of the House of Representatives has announced a vacancy on the seat of Cross River North in the House over a month ago yet INEC is not forthcoming with a pronouncement regarding the date for the election to fill the position

He said the people of Cross River North are being deprived of a representation in the House of Representatives and called for a pronouncement soon for election to be conducted so that the federal constituency can get it's due.

The head of Media, Dr Eguba, a   man of few word corroborated what Atari said   by saying, "If the  complimentary card of Chief Onwe as a none house of Representatives  member can give people jobs then imagine him becoming a full blown member of the house of Representatives

Highlight of the dinner fete was the presentation of Christmas packages to the over two dozen persons present while those of team members resident outside Calabar would be sent through their account details

There was so much to eat and drink in the spirit of the season, a rare show of love
